“In my soaked condition, it was freezing cold. It felt wonderful, and I had visions of ice-coated mosquitoes falling off my raincoat. Uttering little gaspy screams.”

“The public was wrong, but like they say, it’s not the truth that’s important, it’s what’s perceived as the truth.”
Donald Harstad, Eleven Days
