Hmmm... maybe I should review some of those stock certificates
(but condominiums in the Everglades seemed like such a good
idea!). Evidently, I'm naive, or possibly so pitifully innocent
that the sharks don't have the heart to attack? Just call me
Little Nell... and please, sir, won't you buy my matches?
I wonder if the difference in reactions is an American/Canadian
thing? Possibly, Canadian recruiters are more restricted in what
they can do, like lawyers? Or have Canadian writers found
recruiters just as impossible as American writers have?

Another battlement for his throne,
Another day on earth has flown,
We're all working for the Pharaoh."
