If there even were buzzards in Eden At least there will be no buzzards in Alpha Centauri Unless the colonists bring buzzards with them as Memento Mori But it probably wouldn’t make a difference After all it didn’t the first time and it didn’t the second time Should we be so naive as to think that there won’t be a third?
