Soliloquy on a Suspected Speakeasy

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2003 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

"The Mob?"

"Yes, the Mob. Thank you. Thank you for articulating my unspoken fears. The Mob. And when you say it like that, it seems so trivial, the Mob. I mean, it's not like they're organized or anything. They're a mob! What are they going to do? Carry torches and pitchforks? 'Kill the doctor, kill the doctor!'"
