Matt, why you so dumb?

It’s hard for me to like this story. I mean, on the one hand, we *do* get a neat little tale about some mutant wildlife making our dear Weller’s life difficult. But on the other hand....cicadas. I like cicadas, and their crunchy crispy shells. And I dislike “shoot first, ask questions later” personalities. Right from the first mutant appearance, Matt blundered like the dumbest of dumbasses, and, well....I couldn’t help rooting for the bugs.
