Another group of satisfied customers, Ponyboy, including me.
Why are you not published in real print?
I'm thinking Permuted Press would pick you up like that (snaps fingers).

I think we all agree that we've all read FAR worse stuff than ponyboy is cranking out here in our little playroom, stuff that the big houses in New York are paying money for.

Ponyboy, take some time off you've earned it with this great story (I'm always sad to come to the end of them)

Incredible. I have said it before and will say it again, you need to write for a living. Wonderful story.
One of the eighty.

Of every one-hundred men,
Ten shouldn't even be there.
Eighty are nothing but targets.
Nine are real fighters....
We are lucky to have them,
They make the battle. Ah, but one,
One of them is a Warrior....
He will bring the others home.

I honestly get "tingly" inside while reading your stories; they bring me so much joy.

After being clubbed and cuffed, possibly defecated on, I dunno. They probably could've found a few charges to press against the guy.

Fantastic story, as usual. I second (third?) the idea of an anthology of your stories.

So, did our federalies keep any of these things for "examination"? I could see this having another life of its' own on down the road when some yahoos decide to liberate a lab.
Fantastic read Ponyboy! Thanks for sharing it with us.
