Coincidence that all this violent activity comes just as all these new blogger carpetbaggers come into town?

Weren't you at Summer House last week Dyer? I'm pretty sure where I'd start looking for the thief.

How does one person just embody everything that is wrong with the world - its an amazing feat I'll grant you that.
