I liked the cat story. I don't think that the cat being dead is what caused Lampkin to lose it. I think it caused him to not only lose faith in life, but actually believe that humanity didn't deserve to live. He saw Lee as someone who could actually help the species and he didn't want that. It also served as his final test to see if Lee had what it took to lead the race.
A quick question for 123home123. Out of curiosity how do you feel about ***** for watching shows. I know you are against illegal downloading, but as far as I know this site is legal and I would like your take on it.
[Editor's note: I removed the reference to the illegal download/upload site.]
