The Sun and the Wind (an new interpretation)
    Once, there was a man with a coat.
    His fate would soon be in the hands of forces more powerful than he could imagine.

    "See that man down there?"  said the Wind.
    "Of course," said the Sun, "I see everything."

Obviously such a depraved season could not be allowed to exist in a progressive country like ours.  You can see the proof of our forward-thinking attitude everywhere you go.  Look out the window of a rattletrap old bus (new vehicles are illegal; they were wasteful, and caused feelings of resentment in people who didn't have them) and the billboards by the side of the road are shouting.  One bellows, “Intolerance will not be tolerated!”   Its neighbor shrieks, “You may not criticize freedom of speech!”
