Later. Siera watched Cathy say, “Hi everybody, welcome back. We’re discussing schizophrenia.”

The camera turned on Siera. All she could think about was how she looked. The makeover people had performed a miracle on her appearance. They even gave her a red blouse and khakis to wear. Is it enough, she wondered. Will they all see how craz...

“No one can tell sir. It's still pitch black up there. The rest of the world must be dead by now. No one has pounded on the airlocks for six months.”
