Honestly, pals and gals, I don’t get it. Anybody got a clue? I mean, I could sort of understand if it went to 50% from 75%, Lord knows, take a while sometimes…but this is up from before! Based on what? Scrying with entrails? Christ Jesus, what do we have to do to get through to these people!
I want to stay sane and sober. Must I choose?
