Like JohnÂ Quiggin, automatic news and google updates keep me informed of those who share my name. One is Los Angeles screenwriter Andrew Leigh, whose work is sufficiently close to mine that I was recently contacted by a US TV producer who had us confused. The other is Irish jockey Andrew Leigh, who is presently racing in Victoria. His work is a little more different. At 23 years of age, his profile states:
[Andrew Leigh’s] injuries include breaking both wrists in the same fall, fracturing right collar bone on three occasions and is just back riding after a dislocated thumb.
It’s useful to be reminded sometimes of how cushy your own job is.
