Michele to Dogpatch: Unfortunately there are invasions into privacy that I would never have envisioned when I was younger. There's an entire generation growing up who believe that being spied on constantly with cameras, and having their lives spilled out over the web are normal occurrences. Richard's message is bleak certainly, but he's a Catcher in the Rye, trying to pull people away from the edge before they plunge over a cliff.

Dogpatch to Mr. Tornello This tale reminds me of H.G. Well's "1984." A bleak future on a bleak world. Fortunately, our planets varied population will prevent such a terrible future.

micheledutcher - This paints a very bleak picture of a dark, rainy future. A precautionary tale. I like the style of the writing, very thoughtful.

micheledutcher - Mark 211 wrote: My current reading matter includes a biography of Lenin, ‘The Aquariums of Pyongyang’ and ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ so all in all this was a timely short story in terms of content and theme! As a satire, it works but struck me as a little heavy-handed at times though I did very much like the play on the ‘one-eyed man in the kingdom of the blind’ theme with the description of the hoods they wore.
