The Truth

Saint Rose is a small Midwestern community. A place where people still know their neighbors and the better portion of the population will show up to cheer on the kids at high school sporting events. It’s tacitly assumed that no one would dare step too much out of line or try to stand out too much as an individual. After all, you only have to mess up once…

They’ll never stop talking about the easy pop fly that got dropped when it should have been caught or the Letter to the Editor that did not follow the coffee shop party line.

About the author:

  • a former federal prisoner for peace
