Kickass, the doorstop dog, reports that the keeper recently paid a price for his youthful sun sins when a skin doc gouged a big piece out of his forehead and then reassured him that he was good to go for another hundred thousand miles or so. While the doc had scalpel in hand, the keeper asked him to go deeper and do a lobotomy to remove any knowledge of the reigning stupidity that denies there is any risk in poisoning the global nest. Even pigs know better than to befoul their living quarters. If there is any advantage to being old it is the knowledge that you probably won’t be around as the ice melts and the rain keeps coming and the planet turns into a rotten melon. In the meantime, however, the keeper and Kickass would really appreciate a little more sunshine.
