Review: 2020.087 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: Obviously the destinations are actually states of mind. The first is where you become so grumpy that no one wants anything to do with you. The second is where you get addicted to something. The third seems to be for people who make bad choices (not totally clear on this one, which really lists three places). The fourth is for the depressed.

Con: The result makes for very dull reading.
