In another story, the LDS prophet is drawn to s simpler time when he could wander out unnoticed and buy a candy bar. Church Security wont let him outside on his own and Public Relations wont let him wear anything but a suit and tie. Still, the impulse to be a regular guy for an afternoon is compelling. Cant he make his own decisions? He can, but what are the consequences?

And then theres Jerry, who passes three men in suits who are talking and laughing at the loading dock behind an LDS temple. One of them looks up, drops a cigarette and crushes it, then slips into a nearby car. Another mansomeone who has made Jerrys life miserabletaunts him, saying: Jerry, your goodness is your enemy and tell all your friends. Who is responsible? Maybe its the authors reverie thats to blame, but his stories have a way of getting deep inside the psyche and haunting us.
