Re: EpDis: A Late Delivery From Avalon

Now there is an excellent question. Is it the personality/upbringing of Doctor Franklin or the author that we are seeing? I see it as an indication that humanity just hasn't changed all that much. Franklin has a good heart, but maybe he should have consulted someone. Even he admits to that, in the end.

It just didn't seem as serious a delusion as it was, perhaps. And Franklin has a history of taking on all challenges with extremely unrealistic expectations for an outcome.

It's one of the things we love about him.
