|“||Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but too bad all that stuff happened. You want to go ahead and shoot the messenger? Go ahead and shoot the messenger. That is fine with me. See where it gets you in the end. Everyone has been very deceptive and I am the one who starts thinking about it and ultimately they have to face the music any way.||”|
