Most good programmers do programming not because they expect to get paid or get adulation by the public, but because it is fun to program.

Synopsis:
Sebastian Hada is eating illegally-obtained fruit in his Oregon demesne, thinking about how he needs to get Jim Briskin as an announcer for CULTURE (Committee Utilizing Learning Techniques for Urban Renewal Efforts), his media company. Unfortunately, President Max Fisher has managed to disable the former computer president Unicephalon 40-D, allowing him to take over as president. He immediately put his rival Briskin in jail. They had previously locked horns when an alien invasion disabled Unicephalon, leaving Fisher—the stand-by president—in charge. Hada tells one of his wives that he must try to get Briskin released and orders a media onslaught against Briskin’s imprisonment.
