Thanks go out to Kyle Hunt for publishing my loosely-fictionalized political auto-b iography “Goodbye, my Vienna” on his popular website http://www.renagadetribune.com in the Hodge-Podge section. Everything in the story is true – I split my self into 2 characters for the purpose of Dialogue. The only “fictionalization” is Heinz’s parents experiences with the Communists. This is partially based on the experiences of a woman I met in college. After 37 years, I thought her story should be told, so I incorporated that into the character of Heinz’s mother. Everything else actually happened. And someday, by the Gods, I will say goodbye to my own personal Vienna.
