In dire need, after living through the recent years of constipated political partisanship, I became inspired to react with the most powerful medicine: humor. In an effort to cheer myself and my friends up I wrote CURE YOUR DEMOCRACY, THE INFECTION, SPREAD AND TREATMENT OF CONTAGIOUS OPINIONS.
Partisanship is the preeminent political problem of our time. Certainly there are problems that appear more critical, such as our burdensome national debt and finding out who Justin Bieber is dating, but without a consensus we cannot solve them – we can make no significant stride in tackling them, only incremental gains…and losses. And, with the parties warring, consensus is impossible.
Besides, this real-life comedy of errors is better than anything Hollywood could make up!
I am a partner in a real estate development LLC and write occasionally when inspired. My earlier novel, THE GELWICK FAXES, is a terrorist thriller written the year before and presaging the terrible events of 9/11.
I live among the rolling Appalachian mountains outside the DC/Baltimore metroplex with my wife Katherine. We own a dog kennel and breed Spinone Italianos.
