Before we begin to answer that question, we have to know who he is. Where he comes from. In speaking to him, he stressed that his time inside the Vault was normal. But what is normal for a Vault? This reporter knows that life behind the sealed gear doors of a Vault-Tec facility is supposed to be a bastion of the old world. A preservation of life before the bombs.

Before we begin to answer that question, we have to know who he is. Where he comes from. He began our interview joking about his time in the Vault. "It was just me and a thousand guinea pigs.

A preservation of life before the bombs.

Example from 1B above: What would hers fresh set of eyes say about how far we've come?
