For anyone who is reading this over the next week or so I just wanted to apologize for the cruddy editing job I did. I normally miss things during the editing process, no joke, but I don't think I've ever put up anything with this many errors in it. Frankly it is embarrassing.
Give me a week or so and I'll find most of them and rub them out. LOL.
I also know this story is a little different from what I normally write ... shorter, darker during most of it. Have no idea where Georgie came from, she was just sort of there in my consciousness one day. Roland was the original protagonist and Johnson was just a minor character, meant to be a foil for the two of them. You can see how it ultimately worked out however. (grin) I guess you just never know.
Most of all I hope it makes people think. There are things mentioned in this story that are becoming commonplace in our world. As Georgie would say, there are consequences for that. This story is just one vision of how those consequences could ultimately play out.
