Thanks, Bil. Depressing as your experience is, it is also a moment of
clarity in a world filled with noise. I can almost imagine Bill Gibson and
Bill Gates ( let's call them the Kill Bills, with a nod to Quentin

a new nation nominated for membership in the UN, called Dystopia. Simiar to
Ethiopia but with even more violence, ad graphic novel spinpoffs.
