Sorry for the increased size, those of you on smaller monitors, but the text and shot of the gun was looking really cramped.

Also, I promise I'm going somewhere with these scenes of Rich being such a dick.

You'll have to keep reading to find out what it is, though. :P

Seeya on Friday!

So, Rich is a professional dirt bag.

I think it's less that he makes a profession out of being a dirtbag than it is that ethics are something that happens to other people.

Okay; three things:

1.) Rich is a douchebag. >:(

2.) I LOVE the screen name of the poster on the laptop. XD

And 3.) That the only comment on the story is, "cool story, bro." XDXD

1) MAJOR douchebag.

2) Seriously. Even I was laughing hard at that.

3) Even the tin-foil hatters don't believe that one, I guess. :P

It's not so much that Rich is an Alpha Hotel or amoral, which he is both. It's more that he is the Archetype American Journalist, an excellent wordsmith with delusions of grandeur inflated with sociopathic tendencies... So far you have captured perfectly the populist pimps of print!

I dunno that journalism attracts the truly unethical, as a rule... there's no money in it. But Rich is probably the sort who craves fame over cash and thinks that's being pricipled.
