With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

Yes, I agree with the peanut gallery; the Illinois is good. That other one, not so good.

What is the deal with the crown on that Infecta?

Is it a coincidence that "In Cold Blood" is next on my reading list?
Supposedly, Truman Capote had anal sex with either Richard Hickock or Perry Smith in the joint, I forget which.

However, enjoy the read!
