Killing the Goose That Laid the Golden Eggs is simply my reaction to the numerous Killing books that have been written by Mr. Bill O'Reilly and Mr. Martin Dugard. It is a light-hearted look at one possible way this story might have come about, written in a feeble imitation of the style of those books. Mr. O'Reilly and Mr. Dugard took their task of writing very seriously, spending countless hours studying, composing, revising and reviewing and they took their job quite seriously.

But I had fun writing it and I hope you will have fun reading it too.
