Of the millions who read Vincent Bugliosi's best-seller "The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder," Seattle coffee merchant Bob Alexander may be the only one to act on it in a substantial way, sending copies of it to 2,200 prosecutors around the country.
Ask Bob Alexander how often he's heard the word "quixotic" recently. The approximate answer: all the time.
Of all the people who read Charles Manson prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi's best-selling "The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder," this 57-year-old Seattle coffee merchant is the only one jolted to act on it in a substantial way. The SuperBeans proprietor has become a super-activist.
With the help of a handful of volunteers and donations, Alexander has sent 2,200 copies of Bugliosi's hardcover to prosecutors around the country.
Now he and his volunteers are following up with each one of them by phone and e-mail, as well as gathering signatures for petitions urging the prosecutors to indict the former president.
Two other things Alexander hears: that he's courageous and principle-driven, and that he's an obsessed crackpot.
"Absolutely," he said with a kind of rueful joviality. He hears he's "a Bush-hater, an America-hater." He wouldn't disagree with the former, but Alexander argues that it's only hatred for what's been done in America's name that spurred him to act.
He had already achieved a degree of recognition for his anti-Bush essays that incendiary liberal talk-radio host Mike Malloy regularly reads on his syndicated show as a "Moment with Bob."
