My friend Mike Tuggle has a creative side that includes both music and creative writing. He has written a short story called Aquarius - as in "the Age of Aquarius," the glorious epoch that the 1960's hippies promised would be an age of enlightenment.
The story features a liberal gal from the Northeast named Joni -- a NASA scientist whose vision for mankind is to be realized -- no matter what the cost, no matter who doesn't like it, because her vision is supreme, and the rest of us on the planet are but putty to be molded to fit. (Who does that remind you of?)
Well I don't want to bias you too much against the story's protagonist, so go and read the story yourself. It is very well written and quite entertaining to read:
