I’ve watched plenty of TV shows and movies in my life that either were true stories or based on fact, but I’ve never read about any until now. The Ultimate Failure by Jeffery Allen Davis actually occurred, though if one were oblivious, the short story would merely read as a nicely crafted piece of fiction. At first glance, one might perceive the plot as specific actions (or inactions) producing specific results, yet there’s much more here than meets the eye.
