What's that symbol on our favorite reporter's shirt?

It's a band symbol! It showed up (or at least I drew it? It might have not shown up between dialogue balloons and resomolutions) outside the bar at the beginning of the chapter. And it'll make a couple more appearances as time goes on.

Well, I don't know if Rich picked up anything useful from that, but its pretty doubtful she is going to volunteer anything more.

I can't really blame her? I guess?

I really like that quote, "He was always an angry man, but I never thought he'd hurt anyone. And then I was wrong."

Not to make light of tragedies like this, but everytime I hear stuff like this on the news, it's always the same thing. "He/she was so quiet and nice. We had no clue this would happen." It almost gets tiresome to hear after a while. So it's interesting to see a person who says the usual quote, but in a way that also points out how cliche' it's become.

No, I think there's a lot of rose-colored glasses that get put on when something like this happens. People end up conflating "I didn't think he was dangerous" with "He was a wonderful person who wouldn't have hurt anybody for any reason." It's kind of hard to blame them for the defense mechanism, but it's not really helpful, either.

Exactly.
