    Good morning from Vista Bill

    Two sets of codes?

    Axel is even more devious than most of us thought.

    That should trigger some serious action once Axel figures out Tracy is no longer under his mind control.

    Does this mean that he can give different instructions to each person?

    Tracy’s explanation is not as clear as it could be, but in any case I am relieved that he didn’t succumb to the hypnotic state, but worried that being free of the hypnosis/mind wipe, he can’t pick up on the secondary instructions hidden in the daily code messages…. Time for some action, Annie and Tracy!

    I need a decoder for that explanation, Officer Tracy!

    I don’t think I get it. What does Tracy mean when he says, “If Axel sends a message to Officer Tracy, I won’t get it.” Maybe I’m slow, but it doesn’t make sense to me.

    @NightShade09 –
    In case you missed Sam Tomaino’s answer to your question late yesterday, “Drinking the Kool-Aid” refers to that horrible tragedy that occurred in Guyana back in 1978 when the “Reverend” Jim Jones got his followers to drink poisoned Kool-Aid and commit mass suicide. Included among the 918 dead was US Congressman Leo Ryan. The incident has been declared by several people, including survivors, not mass suicide, but mass murder. However you look at it, it was one of the greatest tragedies involving the loss of civilian life in US history.

    Hmmm, my decoder ring keeps coming up “Slow as Molasses”. Wonder why? LOL!

    Really enjoying this storyline.

    Leapin’ linguine! I’m confused!
    If the code numbers in the secret message are the same as last time, and the code numbers are instructions, how can it have individual instructions?
    Better check with my decoder ring…

    This happens to me sometimes. I’ll be telling a story, and while I’m telling it, it is also playing like a video in my mind.
    I have been known to skip parts of it because I see it and subconsciously expect others to see it, too. I’m always mildly surprised when those listening to me can’t follow what I’m saying.
    .
    Then I give too much detail and I still wind up losing my audience.

    Jeeze!
    The Kool-aid gag is about the Jonestown massacre?!
    I remember it well.
    Ryan and a handful of people flew down to check on Jones’ cult (one of his constituents was concerned about a relative there). When they were getting into their plane to return home, two jeeps of armed men raced up to them on the runway. The gunmen murdered them all (some of this was recorded by the cameraman with Ryan).
    Then Jones convinced everyone to drink Kool-aid laced with cyanide because their paradise was over, or some such line.
    Shows how time has reduced one of the biggest mass murders to a cynical joke.
    (And, yeah, some people at the time thought it was funny, and called it "Guyana Grape juice.)

    O.K., I admit I’m lost on this also. First of all, how were Annie and Tracy able to resist the hypnotic state when they listened to the radio broadcast? For that matter, Annie never seemed to be affected by it – how did she resist it?

    Then, this business of the code looking like a commercial (which it definitely did yesterday) but it really isn’t, but it sends instructions to the people, but now, not to Officer Tracy. This needs clarification!
