"The String of Pearls" was made into a play in 1847 by George Dibdin Pitt and opened at the Hoxton Theatre, taking on the subtitle "The Fiend of Fleet Street" and billed as being 'founded on fact'. It was something of a success, and the story spread by word of mouth and took on the quality of a legend, often told as if it were true.
The Christmas Song (commonly subtitled Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire or, as it was originally subtitled, Merry Christmas to You) is a classic Christmas song written in 1945 by Bob Wells and Mel Tormé.
Sweeney borrows his subtitle for Purple Homicide: Fear and Loathing on Knutsford Heath, from the gonzo socio-political writings of American writer Hunter S. Thompson. Of this work, Pearce wrote, "All the Sweeney qualities are present in Purple Homicide, a book both irksome and essential." Although Pearce applauded Sweeney's research into the private remarks made by the political rivals whose opposing campaigns are the center of the book, he remarked that "for all the work done and the indignation Hamilton inspires in him, Sweeney writes too noisily for the book as a whole to be effective." Reviewing the book in the Observer, William Leith stated, "This is a story about how politics is sometimes very little to do with technical stuff, and a lot to do with things such as personal style, and not being hideously deformed." Leith continued, "The book is written with the spirit of a reporter who is drunk on the events he is reporting." He concluded that "Sweeney is not a model of impartiality. He is a model of obsessive, contemptuous ranting, and a tireless trawler for detail."
The Secret Service was there, planted in the red geraniums outside the hotel; the halls were as full of TV camera gear as the White House press room; the advance man waited.

They were here for the politics of touting their book, whose subtitle is ``Making the Most of the Rest of Your Life'' after living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. 041b061a72
