Fiorella thinks it's sweet that there are people out there dedicated to preserving rare species of salamanders, but she's not one of them. Species live and species die--consider all the long-ago human species that have recently turned up dead.

God has granted us long lives through the miracle of modern medicine. Let's be worthy of His mercy.
