Re: On A Clear Day You Can See All the Way to Conspiracy

Ever since I stumbled on “Wikihistory” I’ve had my eye open for more stories by Desmond Warzel. This time, I’m in the middle of reading the Hugo nominees, and I’m feeling the same sense of relief just getting a good laugh out of stumbling on  “On a Clear Day You Can See All the Way to Conspiracy.”

Mike Colavito, cantakerous radio call-in host, takes a few rapid-fire calls to burn off steam and then hears of contrails filling the sky over Cleveland. Speculation ensues, complete with a warn-off from the Air Force.
I like the “he said”-“he said” between the various claims made, and the way the stakes build. I’m impressed by how well telling the whole story in dialogue works, especially since I generally can’t stand dialogue-heavy texts. And I love how funny it is.
