re: baby killer

I'm not a huge fan of vigilantly justice... but if someone kidnapped that man and continually water boarded him for the next 1000 years, I think I'd find it deep within my heart to get over it.

First, I completely agree with Pantaloons. Second, I'm glad Beboy is home. I have a huge soft spot for lost pets. Third, $60 million is no small chunk of change so it better be as great as it sounds.

The second was More confectionaries.

Beboy was returned!
