Conner is a veteran newspaper reporter who barely tolerates modern life at The Morning After Post.
Staff cuts have made his workload unbarable.
Then he had the misfortune of having Cindy Stopher assigned as his temp secretary, shortly before she appointed herself as a Post reporter.
She also steals things from him, like stories and credit cards.
All of this has ruined Conner's marriage.
He has yet to suspect that the Post has put a cerebral stenography microchip in his dog Zelda's head for a column.
