Wildcard: I linked to Guerrilla News back when they published a report called Coca-Karma, which related the tale of one Bob Kolody who inadvertently came to own Coca-Cola’s trademarks. I don’t remember what I said about it at the time, but I thought it was a great story. I’m a person who believes steadfastly that an array of firm penises hover in the periphery, poised to screw the reasonable and the sensible people of the Earth. A tale that pits big guys against little guys is always delicious to me, because it confirms my deepest suspicions: that the universe is cosmically, irrevocably, now and forever the story of concentrated power and the dark shadows it casts.
I ran a little long there.
I don’t put a lot of stock in Coca-Karma anymore, if I ever did - but proof of its veracity would not shock me overmuch. Likewise, I don’t put any stock in Guerilla News’ latest action/adventure serial, Wildcard. That does not, however, affect its being a fascinating yarn!
