Like scolex! I am crushed. But not dissuaded! 

I fail to see how my central contention that Marsch killed V.R.T. is
"ridiculous" or involves making up text. Indeed, who killed whom seems
to have intentionally been left ambiguous by the Author; I fail to see
why one conjecture is innately more ridiculous than the other. True, my
"spy story" involves some ...er...construction on my part--you may
suggest a more elegant explanation of Marsch's motivations, if you like.
I would welcome it.

Since you are a civilian, madam, that is hardly relevant. And the
Sergeant is very fond of mud.
