Book 3: Under New Management
Part II: Tonight's Top Story


Captain Tagon:Colonel, have you heard about General Xinchub? Ennesby told me he got creamed by the press.
Jevee Ceeta:I watch the news for myself, thank you.
Captain Tagon:Sorry. I figured you'd be happy to see the man who pulls our strings strung up himself for once.
Jevee Ceeta:And when he gets 'strung up,' our strings will get pulled even harder. . . Likely by those inclined to garrote us with them.
Captain Tagon:Can I start over with a fresh analogy?
Jevee Ceeta:It would just be more rope with which you'd hang yourself again, I suspect.
