Writer's Note:  *Exterminating* Son, technically.  The name seemed cool 
in the 1990s.  But yeah, that name is old history and he seems to be 
happy to drop it.  Since Imperilus is now a publicly sourced character, 
what you say about him goes forward!

I endorse this message.

I endorse Chaos Theory's analysis.

If he waits a week or two, he'll get his answer.  That's about as much 
time as Psychovant will need to get all the massages he needs *while* 
teaching public school in the meantime...  Hey, Chaos Theory, Psychovant 
knows a good masseuse![*]

* Not true in real life, at least not in a practical sense for either of us.

The soldiers presented a pathetic but inspiring spectacle. The
hospitals were crowded with sick and wounded; the walls were
gradually crumbling under incessant shell fire, yet that garrison
of heroes remained undaunted.

It was as Buck said, "just as if they had been Americans."
