Going For My Merit Badge in Crack Dealing

Frequent commenter John Sundman’s got a project as could use some help.

In it you’ll find the stuff of all great thrillers: conspiracy,
duplicity, double-crosses, dispensational Christian fascism,
misunderstandings, confusions, car crashes, megalomaniacal villains (in
and out of government), explosions, gunplay, Russian Mafias,
neuroscience, coincidence, mysterious islands not far from Cape Cod,
information theory, disease cowboys in Central Africa looking for the
cause of Lassa Fever in the 1970’s, Jane’s Addiction, Mission of Burma,
love, regret, remorse, nostalgia and sex.
