Book 7: Emperor Pius Dei — Part V: Glamour Assault


Attorney: Hello, Ms Foxworthy?
Elf: Lieutenant Foxworthy... My friends call me Elf.
Attorney: Indeed. I represent a women's organization that has been collecting money to put Glamour Assault off the air.
Attorney: We have offered to buy the program from the network, but HTRN cites an outrageous price, and of course refuses to curtail their "street assaults."
Attorney: Within two hours of "your" episode, we were swamped with donations, doubling the size of our war chest.
Attorney: We're still far short of the asking price for the program, but it occurred to us that the term "war chest" itself suggested an alternative strategy.
Elf: Lots of big words. If you want to pay me to kill Glamour Assault, the answer is "yes."
