One Nation Under Par is a story about absurdity and truth, two topics that are truthful oxymoron s when it comes to US politics. While watching the Katrina catastrophe, and also recovering from the same hurricane in my South Florida home, I came up with an idea about hooking up politicians to a lie detector to see if we could really find out what's going on in D.C. Humor spilled out onto the paper. I'm not a political freak, but wondered if honesty and integrity could have helped to avoid events like 9/11 and the NewOrleans / Katrina mess. We could add the Enron and Tyco fiascos to the business side of this list. Then I thought, maybe a golfer would be a good leader. They play to the best of their ability and try to beat a golf course without cheating. Isn't that what we want from our political and business leaders? I know, wishful thinking. I started writing this humorous story, falling back on experience from writing press releases, newsletters and magazine articles. Before to long, I kept adding to it, until I realized I had fun fantasizing about electing a no-name sports nut for president, and my thoughts turned to words, and then into a book. I also wrote a screenplay regarding this story, which was far more challenging than I could imagine, but, it s ready for the big screen, (at least in my mind). Overall, I enjoyed creating this humorous tale, and hope you enjoy it as well.
