Nice. And I was just there yesterday.
Wasn”t Cunningham a naval officer?
is that the missing cdc dude?
Just what I was thinking...
I think so.
He just lost a promotion, CDC says. Big obama fan, likely pissed at CINC’s budgets cuts to his ‘hood. He could have swiped agency envelopes and letterhead, who wouldn’t anxiously open mail from them, even Vanessa?
Praying for the victims of this tragedy.
It’s unfortunate that we no longer have a real FBI.
When I read this and remember the missing CDC guy I start to think of that Bruce Willis movie, “12 Monkeys.”
