A lovely life of horizontal mobility, now retired and fancy free, living with my wife, the writer Lu Stone, in the San Diego area in the winter, Northampton MA. in the rest of the year. I am a reporter on the Northampton scene, reporting on kirbyontheloose.blogspot.com, and working on a book about a local bank failure. Stay tuned for moe.

Soon he is fighting for his life and he will find out that there is big money but not much mercy in their brand of mercy killing.
