There are men among us who lead lives of quiet desperation sitting on the sidelines watching their lives speed by. There are others who are adventurers, fearless and seek danger, powerful athletes, intellectuals, soldiers, and statesmen. Then there are the men that live moment to moment, in the shadows, moving silently, striking, and melting back into the night. Men that are incapable of feeling remorse, guilt, or contrition. These are the men best qualified to solicit when a needed service is required and a final notice given. They answer only to those that pay the asking price, and to men in power that need their services for political gain or enrichment.
