Journal entry, 30 Germinal 225: Until today Minotaur had been taking an American literature course through the New Salem Branch Agricultural College, Wet Heirlooms campus (no one knows why it was named that). A few weeks ago the students were assigned to read the complete writings of William Faulkner. After completing one novel, The Bear, this morning, Minotaur began to pray fervently that Faulkner would die so that his literary production would be cut short. Mr. Cornwall soon informed Minotaur that Faulkner had died in 1962. “It would take a more faithful man than I,” Minotaur said, “to pray in sincerity for an undoing of time itself.” Minotaur then instructed Cornwall to have the class dropped and to buy about $800 (New Salemite) worth of plastic lace for boondoggle for Minotaur.
