Translated from ancient Sumerian by: David Morgan-Mar
The author writes:
It's pastrami, not corned beef!
That should remove any residual confusion you may have been experiencing ever since strip #1.
Thanks to the reader who figured it out for herself and wrote to inform me that some other readers might be labouring under the same critical misperception. You may want to go back and reread the entire dream sequence in Kansas again to see why the distinction is so important.
