Tom McLaughlin is a freelance writer who holds a Master's Degree in Political Science and International Affairs, two of the most useless sheep skins around. He also holds a B.A. in biology which has kept him employed most of his life. He has an Internet book business which helps bring in farthings to supplement his meager disability checks. He is a dues paying member of the Middletown Business Association and attends meetings when he remembers. Suffering from a rare neurological disease, he has the time to use his big mouth and pen to raise hell and write some humor.
