© 2010 ISBN 978-0-9823076-0-1Dear friends—Obviously I wrote this series to be read from Book 1 to the end, but silly me!Readers often begin with what sounds interesting to them. This may leave them unaware of thecharacters, my friends and I. So let me introduce us. We were boyhood friends, as wild and as closeas geese heading south for the winter. But our university educations split us philosophically like adrop of quicksilver hitting the floor. But like those balls of mercury, when brought together, theyagain become one. As have we.Ray became a Catholic priest and moved far to the right of where our teenage liberalismhad bound us. Ray calls himself a neo-conservative. We think he is a reactionary.Lee slid to the left of our adolescent leanings, and somewhere along the line became anatheist. Lee is a lawyer.Concannon, Con for short, retired from his very successful business. I guess his businessexperience moved him a bit to the right, to conservatism—a conservative just to the right of themiddle.
Then there’s me. I think I’m pretty much a middle of the roader—except for my passion tosave our planet by reducing our population before global warming, massive poverty and far-reaching famines decimate our humanity. Hope this introduction makes our discussions make a bitmore sense. LG
