    Geez, how could you claim this is a conspiracy. It was on the internet. Therefore it must be true.

    @bobcat my friend, good to see you. Say it isn't so about the dog. Who knows if this will post. I've tried several times but of course was blocked. Chrissy, I'll try this again, my daughters suitcase was over the weight limit and she had to pay. She bought so much, thanks to your shopping recommendations.

  14. Police interview

    Ok, Sir. If you will have a seat right there, we'll get started.
    Hmmm. It says here you were seen running away from Sandy Hook Elementary School after you heard someone shooting at children. Is that right?
    "Ken. Is right...Lo. Is right Yes."
    Well, I see nothing wrong with an able-bodied man abandoning children in danger. You are free to go. Wait! Have you been searched for weapons yet?
    "Yes is right. Uzzi no"
    OK, Sir. You are free to go.
    "Cha cha... Shalom."

      What a fun little work of fiction.
      Adding that you think the phantom shooter is Jewish is a nice touch.
      Good element to the story. Makes the plot thicken.
