I didn't mean to skip a post, but there are only so many hours in one day. I guess that's the only satisfaction that Myron can have about his "job" -- seing the hefty fine that the slavers will have to pay. I'm glad he dreads having to do these inspections, though. Does he look at Trett and see himself as a padawan, perhaps, burning with anger about something that he can't change? Trett's close to the Dark Side? Uh oh, this is not good. Myron's right to get out the herbs. I wonder that Trett didn't notice any different taste, though, but perhaps he was too caught up in what he was feeling. I did like the way that Myron explained that everybody viewed the radical abolitionists as criminals, and the way that there are other, very much more subtle but perhaps more effective ways to work against slavery. I like this Senator Maxett already and I don't even know him! If something is legal, then I guess all you really can do is regulate it to death. Focus on constructive behaviour -- that's the way. Good old Myron!
