I suppose from the viewpoint of a citizen of Westview, life is a savage desert terrain wherein you can be killed at any moment. That next bite of pizza might go down the wrong way and take you out, or that comic page may give you a paper cut that will develop into gangrene. Even worse, you may not spot Les Moore before he spots you, and your PUNishment will be severe.
Here we seem to have another episode in which the interesting thing–Cory’s proposal–is passed over and we just see the aftermath. I really can’t see the military dialogue as being a “proposal” or any kind, but it does sound like an argument in favor.
I guess?…I mean, the military dialogue seems to indicate that there’s trouble afoot, but the two of them together can overcome it. I’m not sure what kind of trouble they’re in, except of course that they live in Westview. Most proposals are accompanied by talk of how happy they’ll be, rather than how many problems they’ll face. One would think that being in combat would tend to make a person more resourceful, but then one suspects “combat” is nothing compared to daily life in Les Mooreland.
And again, we’re not told if Cory is just on leave, or if his stint in the army has concluded.
Speaking of stints concluding, mine as your host has now come to an end. As two-week periods go, this one was definitely…two weeks. Tomorrow the fabulously expensive David O takes over. Over to you, David!
