Wow, I see a lot of thoughtful comments have piled up lately! Meanwhile, my new TV came in and putting it up is turning from a task into a campaign. Have got to rearrange the room entirely. Meaning piles of books, TPBs, movies, and electronics must be moved. Meaning everything has to be sorted, evaluated, and traded in for store credits (well, I probably can’t part with too many books).
Still, it’ll be great when everything is done.
Anyway, the puny vertebrate pundits need a chance to catch up. Here’s someone arriving at our location, circa 2010.

…in the past few years, with its host ailing, the government suddenly exploded in growth…and appetite.
But give that other writer his due: “take me down to the parasite city” is impossible to top.
