To keep this account to a reasonable length, I have glossed over some events and shortened the length of time between others. If a reader wants further information, they just have to ask.

That all changed one April morning in 1993, when I met the one person who would have the biggest effect on my life up to that point. (more…)

Score settling, one-upmanship, jobs for their cronies and the lining of their own pockets played a role in the political malaise that set in.
