Excerpt from The Scales of Justice

Hope is stronger than experience. The farmer never raises a good crop from the outside row of corn; but he keeps on planting an outside row, just the same.

Arthur Kern sat in one of the front rooms of the Star office, snipping strips of paper with a huge pair of shears.
