Primarily I’m in private practice here in the city, but I also have a part-time association with Kinross, where I act as a trouble-shooter for the company in the whole area of ecological concerns. I’m gravely involved in the issue of disposal of toxic wastes. I’ve been called an expert in the field, although I make no such claim myself. Some say I’m an apologist for the company.

She’d also learned a thing or two about clothes since I saw her last. She used to dress like a medicine-show wagon.
