Excerpt from a Novel: In this episode Mr. Barefoot Interviews Representatives of the Provisional Governing Authority 
by Guy Benjamin Brookshire

“Do you want to ask something?” the man on the bullhorn challenged, uninvitingly. People looked at me. I saw them looking at me and felt a wave of nausea. I answered, in a loud, clear voice:

“It seems like a lot of people are missing. Where'd they go?” JLI pulled on my arm.
