Could everyone write one simple essay about something that once happened in Saltaire…that they saw or were a part of…and put it on one big website? Somebody should collect a lot of stories before we all forget. Otherwise it is like a line in “On The Beach” : The history of the war that now would never be written.” -(JO'H)

Where did you get the photo? I recognize my parents on the right, and Harriet and Bob Aherne on the left. I'll have to check with my mother on the rest.

COSMO: I CAN NOT REVEAL WHERE I GOT THE PHOTO BECAUSE REVEALING THE SOURCE WOULD BE REVEALING SOME OF THE SUBJECTS. SUFFICE IT TO SAY THEY ARE SALTARIANS ALL.

TELL YOUR MOM TO PUT IN HER VOTE.

For any of us that went through Basic Training in the military imagine the trouble Cosmo would have had doing close order drill. He can't tell his right from his left. For we semi-normal people Cosmo's parents(in the picture would actually be on the left and the Aherne's on the right). In Cosmo's backwards universe(The Wonderful World of Cosmo) he see's his parents on the right and his aunt and uncle on the left. Drill Instructor to Recruit Cosmo - Right face! Cosmo turns left to which Drill Instructor raps him beside his head and says "Hey stupid -You're other right"

I believe that doti is correct, but we still don't know who doti is!
