There isn’t just one scenario when it goes down, but a level of unpredictability. It’s not that there is any honor among Gotham’s thieves, but regardless of popular opinion they don’t have a death wish.

I would guess though you didn’t hear how a family of possums all most finished him off. A few days after the last incident, the wolf all bandaged up, don’t ask, decided he’d never eat a pig or a Grandmother again. On his morning walk, he spied in a nearby tree what he thought would be a quick supper, a family of possums. They were hanging side by side in the big oak, Momma…

    This little story is dedicated to my niece Ana. The walrus figurine sat in the little China shop in the window. It wasn’t exactly beautiful, but it wasn’t ugly. Ana fell in love with it the moment she saw it. “Grandma I want the walrus.” It wasn’t a practical gift, not for a five year old.

It was placed on a shelf in Ana’s room, where she could see it, but just out of reach. “Grandma I want to hold it. It’s…
