I really like your writing. Mr. Morlino. Please continue to use your skill to paint the picture you wish us to see. I read the beginning to my wife (I’m in Taiwan, she is Taiwanese: it’s a constant struggle and source of bewilderment to try to explain America’s gun problem) and only got to the “barrel against the forehead” before she said stop, and I had to tell her it was mere fiction. So far. You had me fooled up to that point as well.
The terrible part is, you had us fooled not entirely because of your writing skill.
