"Harold Pinter," came the weasely voice on the other end of the line.
"I have a plan, Pinter," I told him. "I'm going to take over the minds of the network executives and make them let me do the show."
"That won't work, Professor. They're network executives. They don't have minds."
"Well this is just ridiculous. Don't they know how many times the X-Men have saved the planet?"
"That doesn't make any difference to them. These people are vultures. All they care about is money. Art and altruism are irrelevant."
"So what are we going to do?" I asked.
"Well . . if you really want we can fight them in court. I think it's a losing battle though and I have to tell you . . it's going to be expensive. CBS has deep pockets."
"Alright. Try to get the injunction lifted. We are scheduled to start tomorrow. Keep me posted."
