The Flight of the Hindenburg

Below is a brief excerpt from my comic novel, Insecurity, which captures the topsy-turvy nature of our “woke” society.  The story concerns a plot by radical Muslim officers to take over the Army and then the government. Coincidentally, we are currently witnessing...

The Wokeing Dead
