Why a website about political murder? People like mysteries; people like to make fun of Washington. Why not put the two together?
At this site, we will offer regular posts about politics and the media, especially during the new (shudder) Donald Trump administration. These posts will cover any and all topics, from voting rights, environmental issues, and other progressive causes to the foibles of government to elections. We will call out the media when they act stupid and are not doing their job. Which seems to be way too often these days.
Some stories will report on events and issues in Chicago, as that’s where we’re based.
We also will offer a “political murder of the day.” These are stories of people who have been killed for political reasons. Some were heads of state or other government officials. Some were ordinary people targeted for their own political beliefs or actions. Some were providing a service to others that the powers that be wanted to stop. And some were innocent victims of a political agenda, sometimes on a massive scale, in the case of historical massacres. We will take you all over the world to tell these stories.
Finally, this site is a good place to buy a book in the political murder series by S.W. Spooner. The first out is The Political Blogging Murder, available elsewhere on this site as an e-book for only $2.99. An upcoming book is Off With His Talking Head.
