Status: O DEJA THORIS, INDEED ******************* The Viking Project, we now know, was an utter cover-up. The government squelched the truth: Mars is far stranger than any fiction. The canals are real, and pinstriped gondoliers ply the water- ways crooning to emerald-skinned damsels. The Martian King, an overfed gnome, chants ensorcellments that lull the fangbats to sleep, and coincidentally illuminate the sky with streaks of brilliant orange. In the highlands, dusky warrior-maids defend handsome boys from the clutches of sentient cacti. Our leaders will not shield us from any frightening or dangerous truths. These represent no threat. Their greatest fear is that our dreams will come true. -- This post is COPYRIGHT 1995, Andrew Solberg. All rights reserved.
