    1. We will always issue remorseful readers their subscription money back!

    2. That is funny. Heh

    3. BB should look into a possible kidnapping of a regional CDS boss in southern Chihuahua that was committed by La Linea dressed as Guardia Nacional … I think the CDS boss went by the alias of 010
