I keep trying to go through Cromwell, eg.

pulp > wwi > british history > english history > english civil war > cromwell > orange

But that's 7. Brooklyn (or Cleveland) seem a better bet. Although I'm not sure why they're orange!

I see the Tony Hillerman connection. navajo > orange I don't get at all...

I wonder why "tabs" is related to "beetles"? Could it be because of people misspelling "beatles"? (That would be disappointing of course, but it's the only reason I can think of...)

Because of this, I believe.

I had to look at it closely to figure out why 'tabs' was there. I see, now. I see!!!
