Writer Admits Guilt

In a surprising move today before the House Committee on Un-American Writing, author S. M. Hart admitted she intentionally avoided conflict in her novel.  When asked whether she had purposely left her main character alive at the end of the story, Ms. Hart answered “yes.”

Her response drew immediate cries of protest, not only from the gallery, but also from some members of the subcommittee.  The chair threatened to clear the room if order was not quickly restored.  He then asked Ms. Hart if she was aware of the penalty for avoiding conflict.  Again, the witness responded in the affirmative.

Pandemonium erupted and the chair hastily adjourned the hearing while Ms. Hart was hustled away by security.  She later issued a statement declaring that she could not in good conscience add to the growing pile of conflict in an already conflicted world.
