No real surprises.

I know it's unlikely if anyone would have the opportunity to pay respects in person but try to at least say a prayer. The situation was even worse than I thought. Her husband left her with two kids and she worked two full time jobs to support them. They had a collection at work but I doubt if it will go very far. Bonnie gave everything she had to her family and society but society didn't seem eager to lend anything back. Sorry if that sounds socialist--let me make amends: "Karl didn't technically do anything illegal."
A lot of goofy stuff happened with the midnight sale of the Harry Potter book last night but I'll wait until I'm in a better mood.
