L. Fisher.It was one heck of a punch. Knocked me clear from New England to Olde England, from Connecticut--to Camelot. Suddenly, there I was--with King Arthur, Launcelot, Morgan le Fay, and that faker, Merlin. I was trapped in the sixth century, surrounded by jousts and chivalry and idiots in armor bashing other idiots in armor!But I'm resourceful; I looked for opportunities.

Electricity, factories, newspapers, telephones, trains, bicycles...free elections. in short, these folks need a double dose of good ole American know-how.They needed a Boss. They needed--Me.
