Gathering of Imbeciles is an irreverent look at zookeeping through the eyes of Donald, a keeper at the fictitious Corona Park Zoo. The four short stories that chronicle his adventures - chock-full of feces, urine, and pus - would likely not be picked up by Disney-Pixar for an uplifting, animal-related Summer release. Donald may well be the next comic anti-hero for disgruntled workers everywhere.

She waged a terrific battle before she died. I have profiled her killer, Winston Moseley, from his roots in Alabama.
