cases and each case is classified. We intend to destroy the police

machine and all its records. To put it “country simple”, we have

heard enough bullshit. “Joe” may my flesh rot if this department

into the lobby where he described his assailant as the “Lamb of god

from the beast 666” after three Martinis. It’s the normal process of

around the forehead, cold shivers alternating with hot flashes.

“Well chicken I think you’ll live”.


I look out the glass wall and that post card fjord explodes in my

brain green and pink and blue. The brain artefact has a built-in

mechanism that prevents it from solving problems and that mechanism

is The Word.
