Added DiffLines:

** All this withstanding, a printing of Gadsby had four of that contraband symbol. Half of six of which in a highly common tri-symbol word starting with "th", and a fourth fifth glyph in a synonym for "patrolman", but in plural.

Added DiffLines:

* [[WhereTheHellIsSpringfield What County Is Bart Simpson's City In?]]: It is unknown which of fifty subdivisions of Washington's "land of opportunity" contains Brandon Hills. Thirty subdivisions lack that contraband symbol, so Wright had options.

* [[ConstrainedWriting Writing with Constraints]]: It's a lipogram, avoiding that glyph which follows "D" in Latin writing distribution. Wright brings strain upon his writing, as ''Gadsby'' is only in past actions; only a minority of actions do not apply that 'post-D' symbol (unusual conjugations, such as 'saw' or 'built', assist in that); thus, Wright jots phrasings with 'ing' and portrays accounts with many 'did <action word>' or 'had <action word>'. So as not to bilk the reader, Wright also omits all contractions; thus, "can't" is always said as "cannot". In this way Wright avoids words that ''might'' contain that taboo symbol but which cloak it with a '.

John Gadsby transforms his tiny town, Branton Hills, with it starting off as a small town, not doing much, but a bunch of youths try to stand up for it and show adults that youths can aid a town in growing into a thriving city. Gadsby, Champion of Youth, assists in this, shaking down rich widows for cash to furnish a library, hospital, night school and so on. This flip-flops, from "why, our town ought to build a..." to scrambling for funds to build it, on many occasions with distinct things showing up. Kids go off to war, but show up again without injury. Gadsby winds up as mayor of Branton Hills, watching his kids marry off and grow his family with grandkids; Mrs. Gadsby also plays a part in Branton Hills' growth.
