    My apology to all for ruining Betty's 'Finish this story' thread.

    I've just logged back on here to find the thread closed, I am sorry to anyone who was still interested in it's progress.
    I already PM'd Miggy and P95 to apologize, assuming that I had offended them.
    I explained that it was fictional and was only regarding the assassination of Presidents who had become zombies, not condoning murder of any actual living person.
    Inconsequential and trivial although the difference may seem, it isn't to me and it is important for me to say I didn't wish to annoy or offend anyone.

    I didn't think that Bill Clinton becoming a zombie and being killed by Bill O'Reilly would get the thread closed.

    It was a silly story but I did find it fun and thank all those that made it what it was and Betty especially for having the idea in the first place, it was a healthy distraction over the past week.

    Sorry.

    No sweat 0.02 .... the intention was not for you to feel a scapegoat! It was as much as anything precautionary in case things went further into dark territory

    Thx tho to all who contributed and had fun - it did after all provide some needed levity in this last week of grim news.

    Ditto Chris. My thoughts were along the lines that we don't know who reads this and the last thing we want to do is to give the other side ammunition so they can say "See?!?!? They want to kill everybody!" And I also don't feel like being in the Secret Service Watch list. They are not my type...... unless they look like In The Line Of Fire's Rene Russo

    Thanks, understood and appreciated.

    I want this forum to be a place that we can be proud of, that's why I apologized. I agree that we do not need any association with anything counterproductive and have made that point in threads previously.

    Darn it! Now I have to wait until it comes out at Blockbuster to find out what happened.


    Just for my own peice of mind, the fictional Sixto didn't harm any ex or current political figures... did he?

    i think the biggest let down is now Miggy has to start all over with a thread that turns out longer than the holster one.
    What's this button do?

    No he/you didn't, it was Bill O'Reilly that did.
