Re(5): Listener No 4350 - Revelation of John by Elfman

It was clear that the mirror line had to be parallel to one of the sides, so I spent some time with MISSIVE trying to relate this to Revelations before I eventually spotted the number countdown and LAUNCHPAD. This convinced me that the JOHN was JFK and attempted to follow the hint to produce something related to him. I then tried to use the highlighted letters as the key to the code before realising that the numbers produced ROCKET MAN.

I was interested to learn that this was one of JFK's nicknames. However, now I see that it is a song title with which I am completely unfamiliar. Fortunately we did not have to highlight ELTON since I would not have known anything about this.

Strange how you can be correct but miss the point.
