Things I wonder about

I wonder whether the folks who own Mélange Deli (on Crossman near Moffett Park Drive in Silicon Valley) have read Dune.

Was there something that caused that connection or was this an interesting Stefism?

SPOILER


In Dune, one of the names of the drug they were um harvesting on the planet was mélange (aka spice).

Which reminds me that the OH says he knew someone who claimed to be able to sum up the story of any science fiction novel in one sentence. He asked them to sum up Dune and the guy said "Two gangs fight it out over the drug trade."

that's right! I forgot that the spice was called that.

I suppose there might be a few people around who haven't read the book?

I'll never be able to look at that place the same way again.
