It's the dialogue between the baby's ape-like father and robot-like
mother.  I like its companion pieces, "Against the Lafayette
Escadrille" and "Robot's Story", considerably better.

Don't forget about interlibrary loan.  They do the tracking down,
and they've never failed me yet.  (I haven't ordered anything as
obscure as _The Best of Crank!_, but they did find me a copy of
Nabokov's _Poems and Problems_, which I think would be at least a
hundred dollars used.)

About Time Dept.: I picked up an interlibrary-loan copy of _The
Fifth Head of Cerberus_ yesterday.  It's enough to make me want to
skip bird-watching this weekend.  Though actually, from the way you
guys are talking about 5HC, getting out in the spring sunshine may
be required!)
