Leave well enough alone?

A few days after returning to Middleton, John Jones continued his quest to track down the various cells of Lizard-Men still plaguing the Earth. One morning at his police precinct, Jones was called into the office of his superior, Captain Harding. There, he was met by visiting guest Henry Heywood, who insisted the hero call him "Hank." Despite the warmth of Heywood's words, there was a severe undercurrent of anger and disgust when the Lizard-Men came up. Captain Harding was startled by the mention of such a bizarre notion, and Jones was surprised "Hank" hadn't just erupted into a geyser of blood. Heywood continued, "Jones, we need men like you to keep us safe from this type of filth. I swear to you, I won't rest until every alien freak is deported off our planet for good! What kind of state would we be in if we didn't remain vigilant, son?"

"What indeed," answered Jones, with no small disdain of his own.
