This is a response to VC 23 Drury 13 ("Mystery?")...
Let me get this straight. You want me to ASSIGN other ARCHIPELAGOANS the task of writing installments in the mystery story?!?
Hmmmm. OK. I hearby "assign" Paul the task of creating the opening paragraph of a new story (science fiction, mystery, western, romance, whatever). I further assign Drury to either A) write the next installment or B) devise a punishment for Paul if he fails to come through.
Ahhhh. I feel better already. There's nothing like a little delegation to give a tired editor that special feeling of accomplishment.
