Tekara,You are right it may but in all my years I have seen the opposite. Look at the funerals in the Middle East. Those are powder kegs just waiting for something or someone to set them off. Funerals in Northern Ireland rarely peaceful. Starts off that way then gets ugly. I do hope they put things away and relax but I will dare to say a few will get their dander up. It is just does Security show to insure peace or stay topside. That depends on what the High Council orders. Sending the Rats down would just put a match near the keg.And Mac Did you notice (I know you have not been on long) but the fear of questioning issues goes as far as the Topsiders I would imagine. It seemed to permeate Endtown Reality even prior to the war and virus. No one ever took on APEX about weapon proliferation and creation. Everyone just went along in their own worlds not wanting to hear the news one way or the other. It would be what Flask would know having once been a big time Topsider with connections and probably going back beyond that. She may have been an APEX head honcho with a lot of clout. Flask would instill that which she had already learned. After all she killed or executed with a trial Mole and Crawford with out even so much as a beg for mercy or give me a reason why not to kill you. There appears to be a lot of secrets and distrust lurking behind the scenes. This would make it ripe for some group to slowly manipulate things to a hidden agenda on their own. Even though bad news may cause issues it is better than no news at all so you think all is well.
