Chapter 4

It says here that a large international bicycle race suffered a horrible many-rider crash just short of the finish line because somebody's dog ran out into the pack of riders.

Just one more indication that dogs are very often a tool used by obnoxious people for the purpose of being obnoxious. The owner probably thought that it was hilarious.


In fact, here in the city, having a dog is like having a gun; with the advantage that you can set your dog upon a rival and suffer none of the disadvantages inherent in shooting him. No unsightly police or inconvenient prison time.
