So says a commenter on this odd story, and so say all of us. Plagiarize a scholarly article, a commissioned report, a poem, yes. But a letter introducing yourself? Yourself?

    Somehow it’s appropriate this bright light worked at a high school named Flathead…..

    Charlie: I was tempted to make some remark about Flathead, but for some reason I decided not to.

    Call me dcat. My life has been the best of times, it has been the worst of times. It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, I was in want of a wife. A screaming came across the sky. It was Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. Happy families are all alike; my unhappy family was unhappy in its own way. I am an invisible man. If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you’ll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don’t feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth.

    yes I said yes dcat Yes.

    Stately, not yet plump dcat came from the stairhead, bearing a bowl of lather on which a mirror and a razor lay crossed.
