This story is the end result of an experiment, in which I was looking for a way to tell a story entirely in dialogue without being tedious.  The radio format provided a means of introducing numerous characters into a conversation without straining credulity.  Though the story itself is entirely a product of my imagination, the character of Mike Colavito is inspired by an actual curmudgeonly, mayor-hating Cleveland media figure–as northeastern Ohio readers will have immediately noticed–who once devoted a show to unusually-ubiquitous jet contrails.  However, I can assure you that the ending of the story bears no resemblance to actual events–at least as far as I can remember…
