I can just see him, there in his office, pounding furiously on the keyboard set atop the rich mahogany desk, the top of which is artfully strewn with nearly everything found for a desk assessory in Levenger's.
There is a sign hanging on the doorknob warning those who might dare distract him from his important and overburdening work of running the best little library in Pocatello, Pocetellico, Portico, Portly Cello, or whatever the name of that little burg is. It says, "Enter at Your Own Risk."
His staff takes that sign seriously. Last summer he ran a library intern through with one of that forbidding collection of swords he keeps at the ready on a rack by the wall.
He thinks they think he is in there hard at work, administrating away on library matters.
They keep their mouths shut about what they know. They need their jobs.
And they are well aware he think's he is God.
