I may have seen him around. I'm not sure though. Is there a reward offered?

Man, do you have some time on your hands. Work been kinda slow?

tinb111,

Since this still may be a death caused by natural causes or suicide, it's still a bit premature to be discussing rewards. I wouldn't hold my breath for a big payday, though. The wake was held at a stagnant mud puddle and refreshments consisted of a half sandwich some kid dropped. And funeral arrangements were handled by the Department of Sanitation.

John,

I'm not going to dignify that with an answer. Besides, I'm getting snacks ready for the morning movie...to be followed by The View, The Chew, Family Feud, and Ellen. I haven't got time for the likes of you!

I gave you the opportunity to read Wool before it was discovered, but no you had to waste your time living your life instead of reading about someone's imagery life. Now Ridley Scott is interested and you'll be just another johnny come lately.

I'm ashamed of me?

I'm suspecting a mob hit: that victim was a stool pigeon.

The head is still attached to the pigeon. I'd say natural causes.

Nathan said...

Well sure the head was still on, but can you tell from the chalk outline if it had lost a bit of its three-dimensionality? Hmmmm?

No don't feel ashamed, feel shame and anguish. Anguish because you won't be prepared when Ridley (I assume you're on a first name basis) calls and asks "Do you know of a location in central Manhattan where there are a couple dozen buried silos capable of housing several thousand people." You'll have to answer "Several months ago I could have listened to Tim, read the books and scouted locations, but instead I wasted my time enjoying life. I am an empty shell, not unlike a crushed pigeon."

Then there's this.

With the tire marks and all, I think they should be able to wrap that one up by the second commercial break.
