Subject: RE: (urth) Quetzal in orbit Date: Tue, 19 Nov 2002 09:27:17 -0600 Roy ponders: 1) How could an inhumi have attained [the position of Prolocutor]? 2) Who was Quetzal's mama? Crush offers: 1) It is extremely unlikely that Quetzal could have attained his position at all without the conscious assistance of persons in power. Imagine an old man suddenly appearing out of nowhere and being a candidate for Pope without extensive experience in the Church and without personal connections among the Cardinals. Quetzal was undoubtedly skulking around somewhere before he took up the bacculus. 2) I have reasons to believe that this question is not important: http://gene-wolfe.tripod.com/midas.htm --
