The story mentions the science fiction writer Leo Queequeg Tincrowdor, which name Farmer used as a fictional author pseudonym.
The name Tincrowdor is in the collection Pearls from Peoria wrongly spelled as Tincrowder.
DESCRIPTION:
From the introduction by Paul Spiteri: "Phil's story uses satire to tear through the curtain and put on display the utter absurdity of over two hundred years of judicial nonsense that created the American legal system of today. Amazingly it could just as easily have been written yesterday and be just as effective. His use of acronyms such as LIFE and FRIG drives home the inanity of the modern governmental/judicial need for language manipulation through acronyms and highminded obfuscation."
