“Presume not that I am the thing I was.”

Yes, boys, girls, and pine moths, the old Mark Trail is The Old Mark Trail. He is not the man you remember anymore. The message is clear, but old news. Anyway, it doesn’t pay to try and analyze this stuff. Just roll with it. This is like a mashup of The Twilight Zone and Bizarro World, the strange planet in the old Superman comics, where everything there is the opposite of Earth. And I think we know on which world Rivera has placed this reality.

Oh, we’re flying, but not making much progress.
