It'd be nice to see some variety from the multitude of German, British, Italian, and American handlers/cyborgs....  (hinthint)

"We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too."

no one's ever going to invade Switzerland, not because of their military preparations but because they have all the monies ! no ones going to risk the financial ruin that would occur if they invaded Switzerland

I'd argue it would be nice to see some more Italian handlers in a secret Italian agency. I believe Michele Pagani and Avise Mancini are the only two* (though Elio Alboreto has an Italian father). Razz

* - In terms of active members. Probit Return's hander Giovanni La Russa is Italian, but he's been gone for years.

I would note Danilo as well (I think Robert's second handler was Italian too), but I also understand the sentiment.

Gomen. That's what I get for too much travel in too few days and looking at the CC Wiki.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
----
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.
