I'm not sure if anybody has mentioned this yet, but as I re-read the first 17 pages after finishing the book last night, I was struck by Hal's mention of a plane flying overhead as he's getting loaded into the ambulance. I don't have the text with me, but I believe it's mentioned that the plane is some sort of military jet and it's flying in a "south-to-north" direction. I don't want to read to much into it, but it could have important implications for the state of O.N.A.N. in the Year of Glad.
