Status: O SAVE MAUGHAM! ************* Ellie ran into my bookstore, white as a sheet. "Father! It's time to go! Blastoff is in two hours!" "I'm not going," I said, thumbing through my _Gray's_ _Anatomy_. "You'll die, father!" she practically screamed. "The meteor will shatter this planet. We *must* leave, you *know* this!" She was crying. I held her tightly. "Hush, Ellie. There is no life I want without books." "But the weight allowance...." "I know. Look:" The pile weighed 164 pounds exactly -- Shakespeare; Frost; Shelley. "These books can have my seat. Take them." "Father!!" "Enough!" I demanded. "Leave me, but for God's sake save Maugham!" -- This post is COPYRIGHT 1995, Andrew Solberg. All rights reserved.
