Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


Blue lights and sirens heralded the arrival of the forces of Law and Order, namely Deputy Dawg and Officer Dibble, closely followed by the Fire Department, three Ambulances and the Medical Examiner, Dr M K Jeeveswhile the cops were loading 'Lugless', who had already lost most of his braggadocio, along with his trousers and shoes, into a Paddy Wagontook three glances into the Luncheonette and declared it a Health Hazard, for in his disquisition he opined: "fomites to the right of them, fomites to the left of them," he volleyed and thundered, "this place is like an incubator for deadly viruses and bacteria, throw the book at him, and if he ducks, hit him over the head with it, the man's a moron, without a shred of compassion, and, one has to hope, bearless, for I shudder to think what kind of a life a child of his would have to endure, I see all you folks are on strike, demanding better pay and conditions, well, here's a little advice, you can take it, or you can leave it, entirely up to you, but it's free anyway: form a Co-operative, petition the Court, it's Judge Hinckle this week, ask him to assign the Luncheonette to your Co-operative in lieu of unpaid wages, I'll have a word with him, he's my brother-in-law, he'll agree, then spend two days giving it the deepest clean it's ever had and re-open on Friday, Under New Management, maybe call it Blue Horizons Luncheonette, or some such, and I truly believe you'll make a rip-roaring success of it and if you really want to thank me, 8.30am, toasted muffin with ham and eggs sunny side up and a strong black coffee," and with his order placed, the ME strolled off into the sunset, twirling his cane and whistling Margie.
