    I got that impression, too. Of course that’s also true of a lot of dogs.

    True, though that is mostly instrumental, and the only verse is a repeat of one from “Home by the Sea”. But they definitely should be listened to as one piece. Great music, and one of Tony Banks’ best lyrical efforts.

    This brings to mind the Genesis song “Home by the Sea”, though that has a lot more to it than Bucky’s story.

    I’d imagine that’s the sort of thing that Schulz was referring to here.

    You have that exactly backward. It’s like someone else has said, “every Republican accusation is a confession.”

    Of course it wasn’t a new idea, but Verne, Wells, etc. were writing fiction. In this case it’s clearly being discussed as a real-life possibility in the near future. Schulz is presumably referencing actual talk about the idea that was occurring at the time, but pre-Sputnik I wouldn’t think it would have been a particularly prominent topic, so it’s still interesting that he decided to mention something that most people would still have considered far-fetched.

    Quite the contrary. Sally’s sentence is perfectly standard in idiomatic, spoken English. The idea that sentences shouldn’t end with a preposition is a false one perpetuated by people who don’t really understand English usage, and in speech, most people use “who” rather than “whom” when a verb follows, even though the latter is technically correct.

    The idea that sentences shouldn’t end with a preposition is false but unfortunately still commonly believed. In fact, many sentences will only sound right if the preposition is at the end, e.g., “What were you thinking of?”. Sally’s sentence is another example. And while “whom” is correct according to strict grammar rules, “who” is idiomatically correct and perfectly normal in speech.

    To be fair, there are other people named Weinstein (such as Josh Weinstein, who worked on the Simpsons and Disenchantment), and it’s not clear that this was a reference to that particular Weinstein.
