My name is Adam. I'm a bachelor, 36 years young. I earn my keep as a Data Management Officer in the Ministry - I keep people from knowing what the Council doesn't want them to know, and the world stays sane for another day. There are worse jobs around. Ignorance really is bliss÷ there's enough sorrow as it is to drown the world in tears, and nobody really cares anymore. Freedom of Speech and Information? Human Rights? Such archaic notions! People just want to live to see another night÷ some of us at least. We're just waiting for a miracle÷ and my job is to keep that hope alive. The difficult part is convincing myself that there really is a tomorrow to look forward to.
