An FBI agent's work is never easy.

note:  this is a very funny little story from 1962, set a decade in the future, and uses non-PC terminology (a lot) to refer to all aspects of psychiatry, including patients.  If you are easily offended by terms like "imbecile", "nuthouse", and "loon", in a historic and comic context, this is probably not the story for you.

The Conclusion!  Good story, but who could expect any less from Philip K. Dick?  I am definitely adapting this into an episode for the show.

On Friday, the new story begins - The Affair of the Brains.  Not as classic.  But more typical of old school sci fi.  A bit of a Buck Rogers style story.  Yes, there will be editorial comments.
