They fished it out of the Bosphorus. He was Greek. A migrant. One of those search and rescue 'droids found him. The kind that's shaped like a porpoise. He just slipped out of the water, soundlessly, and suddenly everyone on the ferry started screaming. We all thought a child had fallen from the railing. But no -- a corpse.

We got home and ate my favourite lamb stew with eggplant and cheese, and I took a hot bath, but I still can't push the sight of him from my mind: bloated, blue, a fingernail missing. He had been chewed on by crabs.

If we have the 'droids, why aren't they saving people?
