#1 Well done, Secret Master! I enjoyed the whole thing at the link.

#2 Yes, well done. The Power of dreams and the power of fantasies--can't live without them. Let no one try to destroy them. America began with a dream, a fantasy. All was good, but the last paragraph hit me.

This too is the power of fantasy: the thing that makes us want to become high school wizards and questing hobbits and starship troopers and John Gaults. The books that won't let us go, no matter how we try to run from them. And this is also how you know your enemies. They're the ones trying to erase your pages so that they can fill them up with their own words.

Or, worse yet, none at all.
