I'm posting another story - "Winter's Secret" - starting tomorrow. Many of you will do anything possible, everything possible, to avoid being exposed to it. (I apologize to SOL for those readers who resign their memberships to evade accidental cross-contamination.)
Now, a warning wrapped in a warning.
"Secret" touches on American politics. The third rail for many readers. I tried to keep the subject in context, but no matter how it's broached, it will annoy a healthy percentage of you.
Unfortunately, I'm not a talented enough writer to present a thoughtful, evenhanded analysis of the current national scene. But even if I were, I wouldn't because it would slow the story down to the point of yawning.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
