August 25, 2016: Obvious
It was all clear from the heights of the Ivory Tower. From above, people were slowly moving dots while cars frantically drove around a labyrinth of streets like pac-man. The King could see it all from his vantage point. He watched his henchmen enforce his rules and his citizens enjoy their lives. It was so obvious: Follow the rules, and the nation will thrive. The King knows what’s best. He can see what works and what doesn’t from the birds eye view atop his tower. The only problem was that he never knew what it smelled like on the ground. He had eyes and ears all over the land, but he could never smell the scent of the still, musky air.
