    i am broken. utterly amazed and distraught. depressed, down-hearted and unable to function. brother feudale believes someone for whom he worked had political motivations. imagine! the sky is falling. call the cia, fbi, state and local police, the national guard, the air force, marines, homeland security and the irs.
    listen ladies and gentleman, at least this legal savant confessed to being computer challenged. he even agreed with kane; he did send the incriminating email! (to the wrong party) but it wasn't his fault, after all, even the ag noted, sending emails requires a hi-tech, savvy, computer whiz kid.
    ms. kane, if only you weren't married! you are the best thing to happen to pa in generations. when you confront our brood of vipers, expect a battle of unprecedented depravity and importance, not only locally, but in u.s. history. in no time luzerne will look like a sunday school picnic
