Quote of the morning:
Situation: two small children. One is playing Game Boy, one is observing.
Observer, suddenly: "Don't kill the bad guys."
His brother evidently ignores him.
Little kid, screaming: "DON'T KILL THE BAD GUYS!"
It's evidently naptime. Screamer is about four, and was Talked To quietly and firmly by mother.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?

-- "The Question Song", Anne McCaffrey
