Oops. Reposting chapter 16 of Green Berets

Apologies. I posted a draft rather than the final.

Chapter 16 is important in story development, in that it clarifies some worry for the company of erotic artists -- was one potentially great one going to be a problem?

I really must take mercy on Curt and Art. The story date is deliberately vague, but no later than the eighties. In other words, no 5-phosphodiesterase inhibitors like Viagra. I wonder if I should get them into a clinical trial? So many women...

Alas, the drugs were not developed until the mid 1990s. Too late. Still, I must share a related anecdote that I can't fit into the story:

It was Sunday morning, and the priest had already preached to the adults in the congregation.

Now he was presenting a children's sermon. He asked the children if they knew what the Resurrection was.

Now, asking questions during children's sermons is crucial, but at the same time, asking children questions in front of a congregation can also be very dangerous. In response to the question, a boy raised his little hand.

The priest called on him and the boy said, "I know that if you have a resurrection that lasts more than four hours you are supposed to call the doctor."

It took ten minutes for the congregation to settle down enough for the service to continue.
