We're going in. One more time. And this time we're facing some pretty mean programs--Cynicism, Obfuscation, and Postmodernist Despair--plus the usual obnoxious bunch of totally ruthless Agents, who always insist on conformity or Deletion. And just in case you were hoping to make it back, they've reconfigured the culture so there are hardly any phone booths left.
We're gonna need guns. Lots of guns. And an endless supply of logic, humor, disobedience, defiance, and argumentative tenacity.
The surviving members of the old crew are still on board, along with some new recruits, freshly located, unplugged, and debugged. Are you with us?
You've already made the choice. Now you have to understand WHY you made it.
