Review of "For the People" by Ronald D. Ferguson

"For the People" by Ronald D. Ferguson appeared in Daily Science Fiction on February 11, 2013.  "Assassins surgically implant explosives inside the abdomen of a man who has a daily appointment with the president."

The bomb in the abdomen idea is similar to one of Joker's diabolical strategies in Batman:  Dark Knight.  No accusation of plagiarism, but use of the device did detract and distract from an otherwise original and well-told tale.  4 out of 7 rocket-dragons.
