    Default Is linden stump in Central Park?

    p.26 "They shuddered and murmured in fear when he described the nightly falling of the dark dust. They wept when he recalled their missing loved ones. Each of them mourned a relative or mate who had been touched by the dust..." A reference to 9/11?

    p.25 "Because Spider's entire army lived under the flat limestone rock near the linden stump, they didn't take long to assemble." Could the flat limestone rock be a bug's description of a city?

    Taken with the p26 quote, the city could be NYC...and the best place to find the linden stump in NYC would be Central Park??

    It would take a lifetime to search every nook and crany of Central Park. It's quite a bit larger than an English muffin.

    Default Page 36 test

    On page 36, Dragonfly's speech sounds alot like a presidential speech. Fearless leader, troops... I have been researching presidential speeches.

    I am looking for the president who liked to make long speeches and told his audiences things they already knew , just as the text says.

    Any votes for a certain president?

    As far as certain presidents making war time speeches, you might try looking at FDR. He was immensely popular with the people, and a lot of his speeches are known for their characteristic of telling people what they knew, and yet still inspiring them in U.S. nationalism.
