“Mad Dog” Carter was the remaining survivor of the Battle of Cucamonga Peak.  Even tho’ he was old and had but one leg, he made it to this last encampment at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  The traditional magnum of Champagne had been held in safe keeping by the Face of Everyman.  The venerable sage had been tempted a time or two to uncork the bottle but thought better of it; after all he had the integrity of a Rothschild.
