(Not literally, of course.) If you can make them feel something, you can probably inspire them to behave in the way you desire.

Longtime Newsman Attempts Escape

First novel (A thriller about Watergate) to be published on real paper in May 2014. Other novels, screenplays, and ghostwritings are pouring out as fast as I can type. Hoping to keep the family in Senior Kibble for as long as possible.
