Lyle has put his request in with Moglen. Moglen declared he would do all he could to bring about the meeting desired, but stopped short of any promises.
On his way back, Lyle, like me, also had a prompting to go to the first district. But unlike in my case, he found the gate open.
A shiver went through me, even before he told me that a golden statue now stands on the pedestal in its great square. It is a statue of a man, bearing the likeness of Stan.
I had to go see this for myself. I arrived to find the gate still open and many people milling around the square.
But a white canvas covered the statue.
