This has to be one of my "top shelf" favorite's of PKD short's. The entire concept of this story is bona fide Dick and the ending is superb! This story has great insight into Phil Dick's mind and what he thought of institutionalized government (public) schooling. There are so many ways to interpret this story, and I know I haven't read a ton of PKD short's; in which I so do intend to change to get around to 'em sooner than later.

This is one that will stick with me for good long
