I guess you will have to read this story to find out. I should have quit when I was Emperor is a humorous short story about Wendel who has been committed to a mental institution because he believes that a pair of unmatched socks who identified themselves as Kukla and Fran are actually creatures from another planet. He tells his psychiatrist that the aliens from the planet Scruitol had allowed him to be Emperor of Earth and to solve all of the worlds problems - well, until he went a little too far and the aliens reversed time. He had some good ideas. To prevent lying in the media, be proposed that for every lie, the commentators voice would go up a hundreth of an octive. That worked well, except that many of the Fox News commentators finished their careers doing voice overs for the chipmunks. He solved the problems of the American economy, pollution and war in the middle east. (Just make over a part of Nevada to look like the middle east, transport the Jihadists there and tell them theyve won) He finally went a bit too far and suggested that humans only be given their sex organs after they have finished their schooling and that they be given the gender, size and color they earned. That, apparently was going too far. The story can be used as a discussion point for an economics or political science class, examining Wendels creative solutions to the economic problems of the United States. Yes, Wendel is the L word. That means liberal, not looney, for those of you who are fans of Rush Limbaugh.
