“I walked through the slums of Raheera once. It is a filthy place, a dung-heap in the middle of a beautiful oasis. It is really a shame that the only feasible place for the Docks was in the slums – if only we had known before they arose, then we might have had a respectable spaceport, where rancid beggars did not pull at your clothes, begging for that which they did not deserve.”
