I thought convicted criminals were not allowed to profit from their crimes? When did this change? Or is the Son of Sam Law only applicable in America? Canadian serial killers get to do as they please? This case was so horrifying and nearly entirely law enforcement's fault since they ignored relatives of the missing and dead women when those relatives told them about the pig farmer decades before he was ever caught and convicted. Just like The Green River Killer - law enforcement could have stopped the deaths of so many women, but they just did not care because these women were considered disposable trash. Amazon love to publish trash. Did they ever remove the pedophile's how-to book?
Feb 16 xina commented on Seven Things About Last Night's X-Files, "Babylon".
Yeah this episode was pretty much the worst ever and I pretty much think the last 4 seasons and the second movie are all really bad. All I kept thinking was "really, Chris Carter, this is where you choose to go with only 6 episodes?" Was it necessary to involve Muslim terrorists and a racist, murderous nurse? UGH. And the two young ones? A total waste of Lauren Ambrose's talents. Definitely no need for the tripping Mulder scene either (did they feel they had to compete with Duchovny's tripping scene from his other TV show, Aquarius)? Definitely no need to see Mulder with his shirt off. I kind of like that song, though. I belong to you, you belong to me... It's perfect for all the 'shippers out there. And Mulder and Scully still have excellent chemistry. Best thing about this episode though was Scully saying "Only the FBI's most unwanted!" followed by, "I've been waiting 23 years to say that." :)

And (as if we needed it) Google clearly does not support freedom of speech. #corporateamerica #unitedstatesofmoney

Well you know one tech company has to have the back of other tech companies, because they certainly can't have any tech companies going union.

Are you profiting from this book, Eli? I find that thoroughly disgusting if you are. The article already printed in the Stranger, https://www.thestranger.com/seattle/the-… was incredibly moving and an excellent, if incredibly difficult, telling of the story. Why profit from this horrific story that is not yours?

Happy to hear it will remain a thriving record store. I wonder if Andy Nelson will buy it?

Soon there will be no more record stores in Seattle and that will be end.

This is one of the first places I ever ate at in Seattle and as someone who is not a wealthy tech worker, enjoyed going there when I lived in Seattle. I enjoyed the Cadillac margarita and the prawn quesadilla, but most of all meeting friends there and hanging out and having a good time. Adios, Mama's. Thanks for the memories.

UGH. Truly there will be no comprehensible language left once stupid people are done butchering it with BS and emoticons.

I love how Americans act like there aren't terrorists here on their own soil murdering people every single day - most of them white, male, American born. Denial and hate run deep. Our country is such a toilet bowl full of crap - dumb, racist crap born and raised here.
