Guess who showed up in the "A Thought for Today" section in Anu Garg's
"Word a Day" mailing list?

*** So, who or what is Anu Garg?

Lois, of course:

"If the truth doesn't save us, what does that say about us?"

***  Actually, I believe Miles said that...  When people pull quotes 
from fiction, I think there ought to be some indication, otherwise the 
casual reader risks thinking it was from a personal essay or something.  
One of these days, someone is going to quote one of my villains rather 
than one of my heroes, attribute it to me, and make me look very 
strange...  Not that I always agree with my heroes, either, mind.

That said, a little more name recognition never hurts.

Ta, L.
