What a sorry mess. But he has only himself to blame. YdF That is the first thing a defense lawyer would reach for: To try to find the way to blame the victim. I'll have more to say about that later. For now: I think you are breaking down the case very well for us. Thank you. But you're doing it fro...

Thanks lizzy. I knew you'd understand.

I was sure it had to be "By ..[whatever].. de River" or whatever, considering that the song is more about "rivers" than "deliveries".
