The author John Rickel currently is residing in purgatory in a small rural neighborhood within the greater Los Angeles area. Legend has it…that chronic masturbation led to his insanity and blindness. John now randomly recites excerpts from his bestselling memoir Dolt and whistles Midler on the Roof…a song he and a friend of the band Pink Cowboys birthed during the mid of the thirteenth year of our Lord’s 21st century while irreverently breaking into singing creepy-beyond-all-comprehension. This then leads to John’s, or Mr. Rickel i.e. Dolt, next bout of uncontrolled giggling. Behavior like this has found him quarantined into a deep damp dark, though, white cell in a nearby sanitarium; however, he would still want you to purchase Dolt and to spread its contents through age old methods or oral tradition. Those were his last words…well…some---moments prior to a forty-eight hour giggling stint....so imagine the contents of the book may correlate with something a fellow...like the above would write.
