Hurston  , Zora Neale Hurston, novelist and anthropologist, learned soon after her first anthropological field trip to the American south in that she would have to talk in other accents if she was ever to collect and document the rich treasuries of African-American culture.

Сьюзан это позабавило. Стратмор был блестящими программистом-криптографом, но его диапазон был ограничен работой с алгоритмами и тонкости этой не столь уж изощренной и устаревшей технологии программирования часто от него ускользали. К тому же Сьюзан написала свой маячок на новом гибридном языке, именуемом LIMBO, поэтому не приходилось удивляться, что Стратмор с ним не справился. - Я возьму это на себя, - улыбнулась она, вставая.
