Acknowledgme nts :
This work would not have been possible without the forty-three years of overt friendship
and surreptitious guardianship of Ed Koenig. It is dedicated to JBM, the loving memories of Eric
and Mary Lee Axelson, Paul and Elizabeth Koenig, and Michael Monty, each of whom left this
place better off than they found it.
Special thanks to Britta Young, Brenda MacPherson, and Lia Avalos for their support, Geri
Nolan Hilfiker for reasons contained in this work, and to Manny Alvarez—a multi-beer stranger,
whose insights and actions probably saved my life a couple of times. You can decide.
