As soon as she gets some better evidence she will need to dump the whole thing into the news feeds. I wonder if that gorilla reporter from Luna is still around.

For #1809:

The rot in Bubbleopolis looks pretty deep.  I hope their efforts will lead to draining the swamp.

Breaking somebody's arm "for their own good" seems a little to much like government logic to me. I can see no scenario where that would be or should be permissible. A lethal response to that type of assault would be defensible, if possible.

This is why it isn't about the government. S&H isn't a government agency. There are no government agencies. No matter your system theres going to be assholes with weapons and oppression on their minds.

"For their own good"... you mean like how the British Empire handled native peoples?

Well, if nothing else, this will establish whether she is to be trusted.

I suspect that Lorelei is responsible for the attacks on Juan and Diana and that may be why she's startled that Diana would be going to her for help.  She may be happy to "protect" Diana from S&H, so she can hold her without appearing to be the villain, and get more information and compliance from her.  In this case, S&H were hurting Diana for her own good, and Lorelei would be helping her for her own bad.  Diana may have thought of this, though, and intentionally be playing innocent to get closer to Lorelei for investigation.

I'm having trouble believing there aren't a bunch of medical places where she could get a bone set discreetly. And how hard is it to take the matrix to an entirely different system for discreet care?

She doesn't really fully trust Alyss, but why not send a message to Monty? (guess for page 1806)

Maybe artificial gravity "leaks" and generates some kind of gravity cloud? I'm seeing the risk of falling into other buildings below as being the risk other than getting hit by traffic. The engineer in me suddenly does want to see some kind of diagram of how this place works.

So I assumed there was zero-g or close to it at the barycenter where Bubbleopolis was built. I assumed all the building pretty much floated on the zero-g, using some method to keep from drifting into each other. I assumed electro-gravity or some other mature technology was used on a per-building basis to establish gravity for people to walk around in, and I assumed there were huge machines somewhere that processed and freshened all the air in the bubble, like a CO2 scrubber on a submarine. 

But today, Diana is in free-fall through traffic, and I have to maybe nitpick a bit.

I don't think Diana is skydiving as most people would think of it, she instead just walked off a loading dock, into micro-gravity. She's "falling" away in a direct vector from her walk off the loading dock and without anything to push against has drifted at a walking pace into traffic.

Because there's no "up" or "down" in microgravity, the building are oriented in random directions or themselves slowly revolve over time. Because this is a comic strip, it's hard to give visual clues to show how fast she's drifting.
