When Jack Moloney jumped ship in the year 2000 the United States was the world’s great power.
When Jack died 80 years later the world was in pieces, and his long life ended in a place called Cascadia.
Jack Moloney grew up in Derry, in British-occupied Ireland. He helped some friends lob a mortar round at a British army camp, and the IRA got him out of town. From Ireland to a Caribbean cruise ship, to New York, Chicago, the Great Plains and Oregon — Jack lived through a great turning point in human history.
