The Feathers is a work of fiction.
If there is any resemblance to any real person, living or dead, it is certainly not
intended and is pure coincidence.
Of course there are indeed references to real persons relating to actual events. But
they are accurate references and are used to knit together the fiction without in any
way altering the facts.
Any references to government persons or positions are invented.
Yet if any similarities are deemed derogatory to any person, living or dead, in any
way by any reader, the author points out again that this story is fictional and therefore
no slur is intended.
