Factual reminiscences of an earlier time. Short episodes as seen through the eyes and emotions of a Patriarch. Presented as a true and accurate portrayal of experiences and encounters during the depression years onward. Actuality is captured in tone and tenor. The mirth, sorrow, prejudice, passion, poverty, callosity and the rough and tumble of the era are displayed for all to see. When the end of the autobiographical account looms, it explodes with the Author's realization that the future to be inherited by his progeny and posterity generally, is so bleak so as to stir into action, his years of acumen, which tends to emphasize the need for a societal better way.
Politicians, Lawyers, Courts and Police are not immune from scrutiny. Gun Control, Laws, Narcotics, Victims of Crime and Capital Punishment, including a new innovative execution device are discussed.
Is a new people driven form of governance under consideration as a countermeasure to the same as usual rhetoric expounders in the coming elections?
This novel has been waiting in the wings for decades, being guided by a certain deliberateness awaiting that measure of citizen discomfiture to build up a head of steam; the whole apparatus has begun to 'hiss'. We fair-minded people will unite to have our say.
