Cat's Cradle Chapter 100 Summary

Down the Oubliette Goes Frank

  • "Papa" continues dying while John asks Frank how to best announce his presidency.
  • But Frank is not there to help John with anything relating to the public. He'll be more what you'd call technical assistance.
  • From that perspective, he suggests they repair the power plant and stage the air show. John suggests that Frank take up his own suggestion and get the juice flowing.
  • John thinks he'll write a speech for the air show that's to take place during the Hundred Martyrs to Democracy ceremony. Something official-looking for when he takes office.
  • Frank says he's the boss, and John realizes he's freed the middle Hoenikker from all human responsibility.
  • He truly is his father's son.
