Rudyard Kipling Story
Posted By: LoneRanger 2.5Date: 9/4/05 6:30 p.m.

I didn't find this in the forum search so I thought I'd mention it. I was reading "Halo : The Flood" and found a line I thought was out of place.

"This is Echo 136," the pilot said into his mike, "We are green, clean, and extremely clean. Over."

"Roger that," Wellsley replied emotionlessly. "Please return to way point two-five for another load of troopers. And, if you're going to insist on poetry, try some Kipling. You might find some of it rather instructive. Over and out."

So I read through some works by Rudyard Kipling and found a short story with an interesting title. "An Habitation Enforced" was the name. I skimmed through it and didn't really find anything else. That title got me thinking about the Flood though. How they weren't allowed to leave the Halos.

What do you think? The link is below.
