    This is a pleasant interlude, but what everyone is waiting for is Vista Bill’s upcoming appearance on Sunday! Rest up, VB!

    Beautiful snowflakes clean the air
    On a day when hopes and dreams disappear
    Eternal white, in daytime and night
    A carefree serenade to share
    The king is trapped, nowhere to run
    Sir Tracealot manages to steal our fun
    What magic doth this Knight possess
    To be the greatest thorn bar none
    Perhaps the snow might cease one day
    And Tracy will decide to step out of the way
    How else can a crook hope to earn an honest buck
    I’ll cheer the moment his sword down he lays

    .

    Question? Why do you think comments are so low and so many posters are gone? I’ll share my theory later which might get me banned!
    LOL!
    I’m curious what you think .

    Maybe surrending will get them a lighter sentence….and maybe they’ll get a trade in prison that will get them off the bank robber routine.

    They’re hapless criminals. Time to turn a new leaf.

    @avenger09

    First off, a poem worthy of publication, avenger09!
    Secondly, I have every hope that YOUR return with light the match under many absent posters to rejoin the conversation.
    Although sad but true, some may not be disilliusioned, but may be incapacitated or worse. Who can say?
    For my money, Team Tracy continues to present entertainling stories on a constant basis.

    Well I’ll take a Shot at it !


    “Waiting anxiously”
    Vista Bill there was talking about something else, yet he tends to ‘perfectly’ ENCAPSULATE what seems to be the problem
    I may be the only one that ‘thinks’ this way but there has been an accumulation of “uncertainties” and now in some respects ‘pacing delays’ !


    The former relates to the ‘Vague’ treatment of individual OUTCOMES at the ‘wind up’ of the Blackhearts story line last year . . .


    Like ‘Death List’ compiler Boboscar (and many others ?) Who can SAY with any certainty who lived and who *died ?
    Chief Patton’s (Oct.8th) imprecise remark that they’d “arrested” the Crew added to the build up “uncertainty” !


    DEAD or ALIVE (?)


    Venus ?
    Apollo ?
    Méliés ?
    Mumbles ?
    3 Jackson Bros. ?


    “Outcomes” that all remain “Up in the Air” although readers did “hear” that FBI Agent Fritz Ann Dietrich had survived her wounds.


    Yet (hers) and the FBI’s failure to quickly investigate the City’s largest ever - Bank Robbery ($4 Billion in Cash) - Suggests she might still be hospitalized ? ?
    The newspapers ‘reported’ the robbery but an a mention of an investigation ?


    So we turn now, to the Current Story Line which seems to remain in a “set up” mode ?
    There’d been a major early Crime (day 9) yet (as noted) NO investigation at the Bank by the FBI or by Tracy’s Major Crime Unit (?)


    Unusual ! To ignore potential clues and leads – at a Major Crime Scene ! ?


    What has occurred in the subsequently 6 weeks are a sub-set of some 8 “sequences” …
    !) The Thorndike Robbery (likely related?)
    2) Possible Theft of Diet Smith’s research glasses (possibly related ?)
    3) Decision of Spicy and Specs to run from the Apparatus.
    4) Tracy off - to attend a Detectives Conference
    5) Meeting with Diet Smith to discus his loss (mentions possibly conected tip from street informer)
    6) John Locher intermission with news on Specs/Spicy off to Cuba
    7) ‘Flash over’ to new events with Bribery/Cole/Gluton
    8) Further Delay - New Bank robbery by Canyon brothers


    Result ! . . .
    It’s now some 6 Weeks (and 8 subsets) after a $4 Billion robbery . . .
    The Apparatus main suspects to have said money are not being investigated (?) or even questioned (?)
    The current focus is to chase a low level Apparatus suspect that (may?) have the research glasses over in Cuba.


    Yes ! A journey there makes for a far more ‘interesting’ tale, but doesn’t seem logical.
    Seems like an ‘overabundance’ of buildup. supporting stories to get to the POINT
    For some this roundabout might DULL interest
    (Police usually follow the ‘money’, and there, it’s mostly Pesos there in Cuba ?)


    That’s my 10 cents perspective (and likely) not worth a cent more than that . . .


    Yet, some might agree, there IS a modicum of believability in the above.

    O. K. , I didn’t say anything yesterday, because I thought maybe we were looking at the very first moment of this confrontation, but (as Dean says above) the guy is still pointing his pistol right at Tracy with his finger on the trigger!

    That’s just ridiculous. The very first thing a cop (or all three cops) would do is command that they put down their weapons. But here they are, chit-chatting while pointing guns at each other. (The guns are nicely drawn, to be sure. Kudos to Joe.)

    Not the brightest bulbs in the box, but at least they may now finally be learning their lesson.

    Bronson and bro Double-E are but a mild warm-up, a mere divertimento before the main event, the coming manhunt in Havana to get to Spicy and Specs before the Apparatus does!
