A Jim Thomson Novel

Just begging to be written.

From The Washington Post:
CEO of bitcoin exchange found dead in Singapore
By Associated Press, Published: March 5

SINGAPORE — The American CEO of a virtual currency exchange was found dead near her home in Singapore.

A police spokesman said Thursday that initial investigations indicated there was no suspicion of “foul play” in the Feb. 26 death of 28-year-old Autumn Radtke, meaning officers do not suspect murder.

The spokesman said police found Radtke lying motionless near the apartment tower where she lived.

Police have so far classified the death as “unnatural,” which can mean an accident, misadventure, or suicide.

Whoa! I'm going to spring this on my close reading group, and have a look at this Jim Thompson fellow.

In other news, legendary protoblogger bartcop passed away yesterday.

One can sign the book at if one is so inclined.

No one will notice when I die, but the tequila aficionado from Tulsa touched the lives of millions with his smart mouth and his modem despite the handicap of an IQ of sixty.

To this day, Rush Limba remains a lying Nazi whore and Paul Harvey is a toothless old horse molester.

In which the hysterical ninnies at the Daily Kos ignore the passing of their founding genius, as they pass the death and decay of every single pillar that holds up the world upon which they depend for their very existence.

Presumably we crypto-authoritarian NSA Republican Infiltrator Goons will keep the servers running, together with with the oxygen exchanges and the foodie modules.
