If anything, Raina supposed she was surprised that Johnny's mom knew who Jonathan Swift was.

It was a simple, silly thing, and suddenly she felt weirdly like she wanted to laugh. With one pointless comment, Johnny almost righted things again.

"Science fiction writers are always predicting the future, whether they mean to or not. Things like flying machines, and space travel, and being able to instantly communicate with people all over the world... We've done all that. Things they only dreamed of."

Things like a world where everyone was equal, and everyone had a chance. They were getting there, weren't they?

She watched as Johnny stepped forward to look through the telescope and let the quiet resume for a minute or two. Finally, she said, "When you've had your fill of Mars, I can find Jupiter and then give Saturn a try."
"Art enriches the community, Steve, no less than a pulsing fire hose, or a fireman beating down a blazing door. So what if we're drawing a nude man? So what if all we ever draw is a nude man, or the same nude man over and over in all sorts of provocative positions? Context, not content! Process, not subject! Don't be so gauche, Steve, it's beneath you."
