I Have Always Been a Strong Supporter Of Freedom From Religion.

pigsmear2“Is there a place better than this for us umons? I don’t think so.” I was talking to Max. He is trying to convince Katherine to leave for parts unknown. “But we are a strong bunch of people and can endure anything the world will throw at us.”

Max is adamant about leaving. He/she wants to start a colony in some god-awful place like Aleppo that has had the shit bombed out of it. “At least we will have more room to grow as a population and eventually we will become the norm. They can’t stop us.”

“Now you sound like Ash” I said. “This is getting scary. Seems as if insanity has taken over. Besides we aren’t finished here. We have so much more to do.”

I was really getting pissed off. What happened to the idea of a Petropolis? We fought so hard to get these islands liberated and now the umons want to leave. Besides, I would really miss Katherine and the baby or babies. Who knows how many she will have.

But the real problem is how to deal with Ash.

Stay tuned…
