Can You Believe ...


... our politicians in Washington? I'm still shaking my head. After President Bush's great appeal for common sense, you'd have thought someone in the Democrat party would have had a prick of conscience. Oh, no. In the words of Maxene Waters, "We want to socializ... er, uh, uh, er ....." In effect she said, we want to take over the industry and run it ourselves.

Have you ever heard of the federal government running things more efficiently than the private, capitalist, free enterprise sector. The feds don’t have any incentive to be efficient. They only want the profits. They could care less about what it does to you and me - i.e. higher prices, shortages, dependence on foreign, unstable governments for our energy demands.

Personally, I’m darned angry, and I know I’m not alone. I hope my representatives and senators know that. I think they do, but what of those of other states?


As for my querying, I have gone over the query letter again and with the help of some great on-line friends, I think I’ve made some major improvements. So, yes. I’m sending it out again.

By-the-way, I got a request for a partial (synopsis and first 3 chapters) from a small publishing house. Here’s not holding my breath (takes in sharp breath, hold it and turns blue).
