"Fifteen pound jellyfish?!? You must be mad!"

The Participant Returns.

The Participant Returns RealAudio

People were very busy pretending to be eloquent, dancing with words like excited new lovers.
No one was able to say what needed to be said. Security was tight; travel and communication were monitored with steadfast commitment. Freedoms 'guaranteed' by the Constitution were amended.
A state of siege prevailed in the minds of the citizenry. Martial law was inevitable.
The shape of human contact was evolving.
