About the Author
An accomplished musician and photographer, author Tim O’Toole is a retired New York State bureaucrat, who served seven governors (and farl too many commissioners). His previous literary efforts include periodic columns for the Albany Times-Union, and other in-house satirical jabs at government. His earlier works include SULLIVAN'S TRAVELS - a satirical science fiction trilogy about a politically correct planet. He has been likened to Jonathan Swift and is fond of puns, alliteration and honest politicians. He favors long sentences with parentheses and short chapters to make up the difference. He also firmly believes footnotes need not be restricted to history books and research journals. He firmly believes a few other things, but that is another story. An apprentice pundit - working on his professional curmudgeon certificate, samples of O'Toole's shorter works are available at www.1ceman.com or www.timotoole.org.
