About the Author

A DIFFERENT POINT OF VIEW After sending me off to Catholic School, my parents discovered that I held a different point of view, one that often squared me off with the priests and nuns trying to ensure I stayed on the right side of the ledger and escaped the fiery furnaces. Fortunate for me, I learned to think for myself at an early age, thanks to my mother and father who were the same ones that taught me not believe everything I heard. Although just six-years-old, I could read the signs that said "No Negroes Allowed" and "Colored Water Fountain," which were common during that time and provided me with a different point of view about "rocking the boat." I knew when to open my mouth and when to keep it shut because danger rested at every corner until I reached home. Nevertheless, growing up in a country town prepared me for a world that was about change quickly. I remember setting in the "colored only" balcony at the movies, but it would not be long before I sat anywhere I pleased, and my different point of view served me well. A freethinker since a child, I always wanted answers. I wanted to know "the why, to the why." More times than not, the answers provided only partial solutions and I started from that point and kept going until I was satisfied. That inquisitive nature led me to a career as a journalist and two college degrees. Although, I left the print industry, what I learned there helped me become a better researcher and sharpened my eye for the truth. Even as a child, I read constantly and retained information like a sponge, but it was my ability to ask the tough or embarrassing question that marked my search. What was I searching for? I did not have an idea, but I knew I would know when I found it. When the answer came, I felt embarrassed that it had not occurred to me sooner. Knowledge! That was the answer. Knowledge. Upon acquiring knowledge, I suddenly became aware of how much there is to know and how little time I had to acquire it. More importantl --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
