Well Ray Goedecke came home from a church camp late one night in 1964 and killed his father, mother and sister then went back to camp and returned the next day to "discover" the bodies. Went to San Quentin and was released in 1975 but killed a woman (who had befriended him in prison) in 1978. Eventually went back to prison on a plea deal and was released a second time in 1987.

Turns out this was just in time to attend his 25th (Hilltop High School, Chula Vista) reunion, which he did. Tom Waits has yet to write a song about this one.

I guess they don't write 'em like that anymore. Luke Stong? Never heard of the dude.

Amazingly, small-minded folks ignore this "Minnie-treat' in favor of giant cheeseburgers.

Or Supertacos.

Or Supersushi.

Or Superstition.

Do not let your cats hold your tongue, Mezetta-breath...

They can hold the fries, though.

I'll deliver gladly. Otay?

I operate deliveries in the continental US under the corporate guise of "musculardeliverstrees.com". The product comes in a cardboard container called a "Musbox." Patent pending.

And that was that at almost 9:00.

I needed to pick up the Simon Brothers and haul their battery to Walmart. That wasn't their car's problem at all. Exchange/refund needed.

So we went there.
