“WHAT’S THE MESSAGE?”

“Are you absolutely sure you want to do The Last Visibile Dog tonight?”, said Mrs. Crow.

“Sure, I’m sure”, said Crow.  It’s the hottest thing we’ve got.  It’s new.  It’s far out.  It’s a play with a message.”

“What’s the message?”, said Mrs. Crow.

“I don’t know”, said Crow.  “But I know it’s there, and that’s what counts.”
