Lion Azlan roars – softly
Does it have a sore throat?
A few years ago, a staffer here at La Registra found himself on a tube to Turnpike Lane -- by mistake. On said underground line he picked up a Turkish newspaper and was a little surprised to find that it ran an astrology column and that the sign for Leo in that language is Aslan. Aslan, as the more literate readers of this sign will remember, was a pseudonym for a messiah in books such as The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Major corporate reseller-cum-distributor Azlan, is of course a different kettle of fish. We hear, somewhat reliably, that it has just told its corporate staff that they must trade in their expensive BMWs for something a little smaller… Could it be an Abyssinian Cat, The Register speculates.
