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.
