Dad, the only thing Denton and I have in common is that we're both Homo Sapiens.
Something happened to make homo sapiens mutate into homo economicus.
He had to be content with armistices, reconciliations and matrimonial contracts, because the great dignitaries of the state, men like the palatine Laszlo Garai, Count Ulrich of Cilli, and the voivode of Transylvania, Mihaly Ujlaky, thwarted in every way the novas homo whom they hated and envied.
It was a very tall species, towering above other hominids alive at the time especially the stumpy Homo habilis.
As a consequence Wilde might easily usurp Quentin Crisp's self-appointed title of England's first stately homo.
