"the media is how we understand things
isn't it.?" the voice imparts...a new voice ,I am unfamiliar with "says",
"If you woke up tomorrow and a telegenic news anchor explained to you
a meteor for instance was heading towards earth
and that suicide pellets were being given out at booths painted military camouflage green and brown
by men dressed as officials
and if a loud "this is not a test.this is not a test."sound

I am confused...by the introduction of this line of story.
it is not the same as my usual interface
I hear something akin to a dial tone
and next Evan explaining the "mix -up"- they fired " some girl" named Mandy who was stealing paperclips or something...and "the bitch" had deliberately mismarked various Chatterbot programs...so bothered was Mandy by her dismissal from ProxyCyber

someone else we 'app-ed" is doing "Meteor".Pino -B Dumbo is actually a much better story"
"well," I graph back,'what if we combine the two stories...since you already,inadvertantly or not placed the "meteor" story in my head'
