I like the 24 for this kind of portrait:
I had to take away the caption. Too many addresses in Zimbabwe were
picking it up through Google. Him and I talked for about 30 minutes.
Towards the end he said: "It was better under S." Most 40 or over will
know who S. is.

are a couple more.
(Usch ... lousy scan. It's a PAW from 2002. Live and learn). Actually a
lot of those on that page are with the 24.
