Multiple murders and beheadings were happening regularly in town. Recently, a good friend of mine had been chased down the main strip, his body riddled with bullets as the violent confrontation came to an end, all within earshot of my apartment nearby. These things were all too real. In 2002 I moved to Acapulco, Mexico, a tropical beach town long past its prime, but still a kind of paradise. Corrupt cops educated me on the rules of the road, and I learned how to get things done by greasing palms with increasing q ...

This book endeavors to reflect that humor. Volume II will cover the years between 1987 and 2002 in considerable detail, although this first volume concludes with observations on the state of the Mets in particular and of baseball in g ...
