Bet [pdf file]
If we donít stop these maniacs it wonít be long before they start
using the Javitts Scale of Natural Selection and Normal Adaptation to
render people like you and me into genetic dead-ends. Just remember: once
Congress passes the bill requiring sterilization for all adults not scoring
within the so-called normal parameters of the Javitts Scale, the Supreme
Court will be our last hope. Weíve got to get on this, man...
A Case of Mistaken Identity
I'd never imagined Elizabeth Bennet pregnant, but I found doing so now far
easier than accepting her as a plump woman pushing forty, at war with her
husband, the Divine Darcy. The idea of it was so ordinarily ugly, so humdrum,
that it offended me...
Forbidden Words of Margaret A. [pdf file]
Though it was the most important event in my life (I was nineteen when it
happened), I can't remember any of her words. I was too young and naive at the
time to hold onto newspapers and the ad hoc ephemera figures like Margaret A.
invariably generate. And like most people I never dreamed a person's words
could become illegal.
Makes a Run for Coffee
Crazy, Ms. Peach whispered as she pushed herself west. We're all crazy
in this city. But always, whatever the situation, one did what one
must. And in this case, that meant making a run for coffee.
- Anne could still remember how frightened she had been when her
sixth-grade teacher had told the girls what they would be facing on
their thirteenth birthdays...
The World and Alice
She didnít belong in the world. Alice knew this as a fact by the time
she reached middle age, but she had always felt it for as long as she could
remember. Her being lacked some vital element, as though she were a shadow
enjoying physical extension that could be touched and weighed and measured
and yet did not add up to a solid body boasting independent existence.
