This "Fiction" book is a joke. and its really sad that she used such a thing as backdrop for this type of book.

The real tradigy is the lack of attention the victoms received when it happened. Way before columbine..... and still today. Nothing. 30 years and still nothing.

May Lawrence Moore rot in hell..

I'm one of the survivors, and I intend to write about that night factually as it happened, where it happened, and the people in my life it affected. I've been working on this for 14 years. Getting shot was easy, explaining it all, how we all met Larry Moore many times at the "Mu" and that other club on Capitol Street.... The truth is stranger than fiction, honest.

Gloria,
I was there too.Let me know when you finish the book. I definitely want a copy. I lost some friends that night (Lori and Johnny). And several more were seriously wounded. It was a very bad night. I live in Kuna , Idaho now. If you need any additional info for the book you can find me on Facebook. God Bless.
