    The way you lie to children is like the writer of that old Yes, Virginia letter did to prove there was a Santa Claus - he did it as they always do, by extrapolating to positive-sounding generic adjectives: "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion – "

    Children never demand specifics; they'll buy anything that brings 'em toys. Same with the Repugnant base, which even will do without the toys.
