The *problem* is that it didn't happen that way, for starters,
and it makes it into something more appropos for a fanzine. Basically,
if you spent all summer building a car, and somebody said you just
bought it from somebody else, no matter how nice that other car might
be, how good it would be to be associated with it...you put in a hell
of a lot of work building it, and to be offhandedly told otherwise is
annoying.

And, again, it just diminishes the implications, makes it
safe...it's not about the real world, it's just about the Prisoner.
