“I will write to the city, and all local and regional newspapers, at least. And if that doesn’t work, I’ll hit the TV stations. It’s a disgrace!”

“I will make people listen to me! How can they just ignore it!?”

“Moira, tiger’s eye is not made of eyes of tigers. It’s just a stone called like that.”
