On an afternoon in early December 2003 I mentioned at the World Chess Network website that I thought Charles Ingram to have been the victim of a miscarriage of justice.
That prompted the non-serious response from a person there with the handle Big Brother that "Sir Ludovic Kennedy has taken an interest."
Sir Ludovic was well known as a campaigner in cases of rough justice.
I then informed him that the previous day I had indeed received an e mail from the secretary of Sir Ludovic; Ms Vanessa Fox.
In his enclosed reply (he had no e mail and an original inquiry on this matter which I had sent to him at the National Secular Society some weeks earlier, one of their officers had forwarded on to him by snail mail) he said that he found the matter intriguing, and were he 44 or even 54 might become involved.
But now being 84, he felt that he already had enough on his plate.
