That was quick. Sorry I missed it.


Just so you know, it wasn't me, but a psycho fan that I obviously upset. I didn't get to see it either, but I can pretty much guess the content based on the others I did see.

Probably on the free internet @ the library.

wow, You have a stalker with multiple emails & user names! Lucky you. What is posted is probably what they posted. They are tricky you know.
