    True Service

    LOL. I'm reminded what the little Russian lady wrote (don't remember where): "It only stands to reason that where there's sacrifice, there's someone collecting the sacrificial offerings. Where there's service, there is someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters, and intends to be the master"

    The Country Music Concert Massacre in Las Vegas

    Here's an update from Clark County Sheriff, Lombardo. He seems skeptical (go to 21:13 in the video) and now I do too, that the shooter was acting alone...based on the amount of rifles, ammo and other material found at the hotel and his home. It's not inconceivable others would be joining him (why so many rifles) in the room? Add to that how could he get all his supplies up to the room without help from others? ...inside/ outside help.
