A personal note on the writing of Bloody Battles Batter Business. When I first began writing this story in August of this year the body count was a terrorizing 700, now in the early weeks of December that number has since doubled. I hoped that by the time this story was published some of this violence might have subsided. That “they” would have stopped killing the “bad guys”, and everything would go back to what it once was. Some believe these killings are “surgical” and that only those who are guilty of corruption have fallen.
