Just got a visit request from . . .
Cohen: Well, this is interesting. Cybele, pretend you have real opinions for a second. How would you feel about meeting a new visitor?
Cybele: What, right now?
Cohen: No. In the near future.
There’s a gentleman who’s taken an interest in your kind’s legal status. And who, apparently, would like to meet our resident law-breaking Being in person. Fellow by the name of Arthur Bennett.
Cybele: Ooh! Sure, he can come visit!
Cohen: Good, since I was planning to go ahead whether you approved or not . . .
. . . Wait a second. How do you recognize his name?
Cybele: I’ve seen him on TV! He talks about Beings a lot!
Cohen: Oh. That makes sense.
