The Saint awakes one morning and decides to search for Truth. It is not an enviable task, in this day & age, but he has been selected by fate, he reasons, and so he persists. He immediately contacts the intelligence community and acquires all the latest equipment in electronic surveillance. It is a long drawn out and thankless task.
The years come and go, blowing by like chaff in the wind. Finally, he realizes that there must have been some mistake and he regretfully resigns his position. As for a successor — he advertised in the papers but there were no takers. He, therefore, decides to write about his adventure in a long-winded monograph which is never published.
The paper’s conclusion: ‘Observe the survivors & learn.’
