  5. Oh, how sweetly naive he his 🙂 This must have been written before VC Andrews died and “left all her stories in a box.”

  6. The Tolkien family would also disagree.

  7. Hey, if the dead can vote (especially in Chicago), then why can’t they write? Not like they have much else to occupy their time 🙂

  8. This belongs in the ‘once upon a time’ box. 🙂
