Best thing that had happened to me since puberty was Dawn. I met her at an Information Management seminar in Tokoyu almost two lunar years ago. In between trading punches in Aggression Management sessions and copying lecture notes on "Coming to Terms with the World", we shared beds as wellÖconstantly. Now we share our lives in the city of the newly formed New World Republic (NWR). As we started our whirlwind romance, so did the NWR woo and court us. They guaranteed us citizenship, a dandy apartment each and a job for life. They also threw in a permit for two kids if we should ever want any - and that was generous, if simply a token. Who in their right minds would ever want kids these days?

Anyway, we packed our bags and left for the brave New World.
