The world is crazier than most people know. But I know. I was a clinical social worker for forty years. I am a witness. I retired from social work to write about the sad, the mad, and the savage; with whom I have spent most of my life. I have decided to translate these stories into fiction, because, as a co-worker once said, "You couldn't make this sh*t up. No one would believe you."

Baby boomers are often educated and often broke. I have a solution: let’s develop a new food source.

The way I see it, the world’s is in trouble because a few people have a lot, and the rest of the people have doodly squat. The haves and the have nots have been duking it out since the first cave baby said “mama” and not a whole lot has changed.

So….let’s eat them.

Baby boomers are accused of never having saved a cent, and this is often all too true. The reasons are vast, varied and have much to do with events outside our control, so I’ll go there another time. But the fact is, a lot of us boomers face retirement on zilch.

If we ate the rich, we could save oodles of money on food. We could start a new industry, and save the money from it without some rich s.o.b snatching it from us for some overpriced something or other.

We could take over a few canning businesses and package them nicely. We could do a frozen line too, maybe present them as “Swanson’s Very Best, and We’re Not Kidding.” How ‘bout Zillionaire a la Crème, or Brutish Bastard Over Rice? Or Entitled Bitch With Garlic Mashed and Gravy?

We could even process the less delectable parts like livers and noses and hearts (if you can find them) and sell them as dog food. Who knows, maybe after a few cans of the stuff, our dogs will bark in French and Latin!
