Types of Keyboards
by William Keckler
You have to start with the keyboard with individual letters. Then you graduate to the keyboard with concepts. Later, they give you this horrifying keyboard with the concepts grouped into ethical, jurisprudential, scientific and historic categories. You are horrified to find—to give just one example—"mass murder" and "the common good" sharing a single key. "Progress" and "calculated limited extinctions" are also key-mates.
And they tell you that's not even your final keyboard.
Graduation still looms. All the elders are getting excited for you.
The most horrible betrayal arrives, disguised as a graduation present.
