Breaking Bad Spoiler alert:




















In BrBa finale, ( Marty Robbins-El Paso song ) Felina the Mexican Maiden is really the MethLab taken by another gunman Uncle Jack. Walt Whiteman is the lone cowboy with a pain in his side. He says goodbye one last time. Brilliant !

“Guess I got what I deserve,” Badfinger sings over the image of Walter White laying dead in a pool of his own, cancerous blood in the middle of the Aryan brotherhood’s meth lab. “Kept you waiting there too long, my love/ All that time without a word/ Didn’t know you’d think that I’d forget or I’d regret/ The special love I had for you, my baby blue.”

Many reports are coming in of the driving of the gangs.
A lot of bikes were seized recently during some of it, times square maybe.
No plates on bikes.

Betting nyc won't be a comfortable place to ride for a long time.

The driver had called 911 early on, no help.
He lived, is in hospital.

Sounds very tenuous.
I'd bet the romans tried everything she considers new.
Sounds like it ignores the ending of northern slavery being driven by cost over morality too.
No one cared when an employee got ground up in the clockworks, or starved to death.
Slave wages were an innovation.

Tor's fine. According to the BBC, "Dread Pirate Roberts" was just an idiot and didn't properly separate his personal details from his second life -- including using an email address with his real name. All they did was mine old forum posts and correlate details until they found his email address and linked it up with other details. A little luck too: a random customs check found some false IDs with his picture. What I'm guessing will happen is he'll get the book thrown at him, but that virtually nobody who sold on that black market will get caught because they were following good security practices. We'll see if the FBI was smart enough to use the site as a honeypot to sow fear into future online black market buyers by using honeypot sellers.

Hysterical. The authorities had only to be as clever as a college girl checking up on her boyfriend.

That has to be the worst pirate I've ever seen . . .

Anthony Graves Establishes Scholarship
Graves used funds he received from the state for his wrongful conviction to set up a law school scholarship in the name of Nicole Cásarez, the Houston attorney and journalism professor who fought for eight years to secure his freedom.
