The Transcript For This Page
A well-dressed, blond gentleman strolls along Park Avenue in 22nd-Century New York City (which actually looks a lot like early 21st-Century New York, except for the clothing fashions of the citizenry, and the visible CCTV cameras placed all around, and more bicycles and pedi-cabs than cars in the street.
Title: Vesta, Massachusetts
Caption: Pilgrim Boner was a product of his history.
Caption: Born in California, just after his artsy parents had chosen to move to 'more progressive' Plymouth Massachusetts. Hence, his given name.
Boner walks towards the entrance to a century-old, high-rise apartment building, flanked by a doorman in traditional doorman's attire, and another man in a policeman's uniform with a sub-machine gun slung across his chest. The doorman cheerfully holds the door open for Boner while the armed guard grimly regards Boner through narrowed eyes.
Caption: His parents had always pronounced the family name, bohn-Air, but to their great irritation, people invariably called them BONE-er.
Boner is in his not-large but tidy apartment, hanging up his coat. On one wall we can see a portrait of Ayn Rand.
Caption: When Pilgrim came of age, he rejected his parents' progressivism and moved to New York City, where he got into the Objectivist scene.
Boner is seated in an overstuffed chair, a drink on the table beside him. In his lap he has a computer keyboard. A 40-inch diagonal holoscreen is materializing 2 meters in front of him.
Caption: When he had a falling-out with the Randian crowd, he decided he would just be an anarcho-capitalist.
