Are you getting cynical?


Moi?.... must be the company I keep?

Many years ago I lived near an airbase in Greenwood, Nova Scotia. The local mall mostly burnt down one evening under suspicious circumstances. The owner announced in the local paper within a day or so that he would rebuild bigger and better. The announcement included a complete set of plans that didn't happen in that short period of time. The only problem was that the plans didn't take into account that part of the mall was 'saved' by the local volunteer fire department and since the insurance company wouldn't write those parts off he had to revise his plan.

There was little if any doubt among the locals of who was responsible for the fire but no proof that would get him to court. Well OK nobody was in the place as it was late night, the fire was started internally in the mall and he had the keys.

Any <just a little bit suspicicous> mouse
