If Senator Lundy (or any of the other pollies) are really interested
in finding out what happened, all they have to do is get Gillian Marks
in front of their committee and ask her.
If you want to know who Gillian Marks is and where she fits in, just

tree. Which road do I take? she asked. His response was a question:
Where do you want to go? I don't know, Alice answered. Then, said the
cat, it doesn't matter.
