This short story is one in a series of stories that are based around conversations with other people. He writes, "Sometimes I meet people who have some of the most amazing points of view or outlooks on the world ... 'Popular Decision' was based on a conversation I had with a woman who possessed a neurotic fear that her body would become deformed in some way."
