    "Obviously there's a degree of uncertainty in any new political situation. This next year will prove critical for Sheridan and the rest of his people. Look what they are up against: he has to ride herd on the dozen or so alien races that have signed on to this alliance and probably don't fully understand what's being required of them. There are still sporadic fighting between many of those members. On top of that, he has supply problems, telepath problems, raiding parties, not to mention distrust among elements of his own government here at home. This man has his work cut out for him, but I know that he can handle it."

        Absofragginlutely, Damn it!
        "And what kind of head of Security would I be if I let people like me know things that I'm not supposed to know? I mean, I know what I know because I have to know it. And if I don't have to know it, I don't tell me, and I don't let anyone else tell me either. " And I can give you reasonable assurances that the head of Security will not report you for doing so."
        "Because you won't tell yourself about it?"

        "I try never to get involved in my own life, too much trouble."

          That's enough. I said that's enough! Now, we gave you a promise. And we are bound by that promise. And damn you asking for it. And damn me for agreeing to it. And damn all of us to hell, because that is exactly where we are going.

          Yeah, well, the rent is cheap, the pay is decent and I get to make my own hours.

                    Here, look, these are my three wives: Pestilence, Famine and Death. Do you think I married them for their personalities? Their personalities could shatter entire planets! Arranged marriages, every one, but they worked out. They inspired me. Knowing that they were waiting at home for me is what keeps me here -- 75 lights years away.

                          With our basic freedom in stake, no response can be too extreme. There maybe some minor and temporary abridgments in the traditionally protected areas, such as speech and association, but only until this crisis is over.
