Killing George Bush

by Mike Palecek

The main story centers around Walter Gerald, a construction worker who is arrested for threatening the life of former president George H. W. Bush. He is sent to Woodbury County Jail where he is befriended by the rough inmates of “D Block” led by repeat offender Mark Pontiac.
As alternate chapters go into detail of the atrocities carried out under Senior Bush’s orders, including the massacre of innocent women and children in Panama and the support of terrorists in El Salvador, the inmates eventually decide to help Walter assassinate Bush when he comes to town on a publicity stop.
There are also some interesting connected side stories like that of Elana Usak, a pirate radio DJ on the run from the FCC, and a group of conspiracy researchers who catch wind of the assassination plot and decide to take action.

About the author:
Prolific author Mike Palecek has been a federal prisoner for peace. He met Fr. Dan Berrigan while in the Catholic seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota. Berrigan told him things about America and the Catholic Church that changed Mike’s life.
So, Mike went to jail, went crazy, went home, like that.And Mike has worked as a reporter, editor, publisher on small-town newspapers in Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota. The small newspaper Mike & Ruth owned and operated in southeast Minnesota won the Minnesota Newspaper of the Year Award from the MNA in 1994, and went out of business later that year.
Mike was the Iowa Democratic Party nominee for the U.S. House of Representatives in 2000. He received 65,000 votes in a conservative district on an anti-military, anti-prison, pro-immigration platform, even after endorsing Ralph Nader over Al Gore.
One thing you might not know about Mike Palecek: He once spent an overnight in Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary and did not like it.
