  1. I’ve been salivating over that fly ever since I saw it as an illustration in Jay’s wonderfully written reminiscence about Prince Helfrich, but since I’d say rather than “resembling the Renegade” that it “resembles two Griffith’s Gnats of different species doing things that shouldn’t be done between species, particularly if one of them has been on a steady diet of nothing but habaƱeros for months with unfortunate digestive system results,” the names I’ve been using for it are far less family-friendly than Guide Secret.
