    Sounds like a stratagem out of Elon’s playbook

    Since he came in with a head injury, they might want to give him an MRI. Ooo. This could get bad.

    Maybe the radio’s “silent mode” wasn’t working and since Sam was going to the theater he didn’t want to risk the embarrassment of having a call come through in the middle of the rehearsal.

    And THAT was the payoff for the “Rae Water” clue? I thought it was going to be something significant. (sigh). I usually don’t bother griping about the “Minut Mysteries” because the very format makes it impossible to set up a good “Fair-Play” mystery. The best it can do is present a puzzle, and this one doesn’t even do that.

    At first I was thinking that Tracy’s rubberized raincoat would protect him from hostile Moon zaps, but now I’m thinking he has something else up his sleeve.

    I took “copy d’état!” to be a clever pun, suggesting that Mike has been using Events From the Headlines as inspiration.

    But then, I have a weakness for puns.

    There’s a line I love from the old movie “The Thief of Bagdad” where the Genie of the Lamp teases his new master:

    “You’re a clever little man, little master of the universe, but mortals are weak and frail. If their stomach speaks, they forget their brain. If their brain speaks, they forget their heart. And if their heart speaks… ha ha! … they forget EVERYTHING!”

    I’d trust Uncle Sid over Uncle Duke.

    Granted, that’s a low bar. Still…

    Yeah, “Left Wingnut” is a good description of the role Zonker played on the team. And he brought the Special Brownies. Indispensable man, that Harris.

    On other things Lunar, I came across a link to a story on the NASA website that NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has found some deep pits on the Moon’s surface where the temperature is about 67 degrees F, a bit balmy for the Moon Folk, but comfortable enough for humans. Well, except for the lack of air and all.

    I don’t think I had “Habitable caverns warmed by lunar volcanoes” on my Bingo card.

    But it does make Moon Valley seem a little more plausible.
