satire

hey, what's wrong with a little satire anyway. sometimes it's just called for. are you talking about me john allen??!?!? about my lobster guy? paranoid over here...

so salt teaches documentary. and i stumbled across this guy who (essentially) schemes, and whose ideas are kind of ridiculous (i.e. ending human lobster consumption internationally.) and now i'm telling his story - or perhaps even just a story ABOUT him. no, it doesn't get deep. no excuses. but im going with: fairness to the listener, they deserve a chuckle. and can draw their own conclusions about his psychology.

over 'n out.
