“Higher Office” / A Memorable Fancy #394

        Tronn joins the crowd for the evening’s dismemberment, but without much interest because he’s gone several times before, and tonight’s honoree is undistinguished. Last week it was a vice-mayor, the week before that a general of the unsuccessful war. Every three or four evenings, no one can figure out why a particular victim is selected. Who will the next one be? There are odds-makers. The whole process seems to make little sense to Tronn except as cheap entertainment for the masses, but it does keep down the competition for higher office.
