#14 The American Dream Book Tour & Protest Across the USA
by Mike Palecek


It's a novel.

Saturday I spoke to a group at The Planet bookstore in Ann Arbor.

Glenn came up to me, started touching all my books neatly arranged on the table, and asked me, where's KGB. I said I had written it a long time ago. It was my first book.

The letters stand for Killing George Bush.

I've got one copy in the car, but that's it.

Oh. I thought that was what this was all about, he said.

Glenn said that Rush Limbaugh had said there was this guy on a book tour around the country, saying we should kill George Bush.

"I thought, this must be the guy!" he said.

Oh. Well. In the first place, I kind of doubt that Limbaugh would even know who I am.

But, yeah, I guess that could be me.

I'm not looking to kill George Bush, but I did write a novel back around the turn of the century that does have that scenario as a premise.

KGB is set in the Woodbury County jail in Sioux City Iowa. The prisoners are the main characters. I wrote it about the time that Augusto Pinochet was being held somewhere for being a war criminal.

And I figured that we certainly have our own war criminals in the United States, and that if the truth were known about them, they would also be arrested and put on trial.

One of those is George Bush Sr.
