STRAY CAT STRUT
merce & hodge have been huddled around the computer screen playing this over & over today. of course, hodge feels she could take the cheetah. merce just appreciates feline beauty & strength. this beauty is another animal that i'm hoping i'm long dead & gone before it disappears.
forget the genius of ridley scott's film, blade runner. two of the most important threads in philip k. dick's novel, do androids dream of electric sheep?, is that there are NO animals, other than man, in the future & man is given an endless legal supply of sedatives & stimulants to help him get through the day. we can hardly make it through the day WITH empathetic animals. dick saw exactly where we're headed.
