(Author’s note: I’ve had to cut this writing down to every other week due to some new stuff I’m involved in. Plus, since I start work really early, I get very tired during the week. So I am going to try and do more, do better on getting things onto this blog. It just make take a little while longer. Otherwise, here’s today’s Fictioneers!)
Eye Of The Tiger
by Miles H. Rost
Washington D.C. saw it’s fair share of weird people. Congressfolk, G-men, you name it, they saw it.
A sitting congressman, riding on a tiger’s back. That was unusual.
Nebraska Representative Bob Langston was known for doing outrageous things to make a point. From dumping a half-ton of Alka-Seltzer tablets into Dupont Circle Fountain, to ziplining onto the Capitol steps, always with a reason for it.
He stopped at the foot of the steps and was immediately swarmed by reporters, asking why ride a tiger to the capitol.
“It’s appropriate work transportation for a guy who eats congresspeople for lunch.”
