    They sleep with the fishes?

  2. Boris

    (to Rain from yesterday and others): she didn´t do what? I haven´t suggested anything brutal. The very minimal option is to find them and keep track of them… just for start.
    It surprises me how many people talk about sleeping with the fish and similar concepts… probably forgetting that brother Pilot and the whole community are in the first place people of faith…? Forgive, don´t judge (as that belongs to higher authorities than us)… Well, it seems that the christian concepts are not that deeply rooted in this culture. Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth, that seems to prevail more dominantly…? 🙂

  3. Boris, certainly an interesting point, but in this case, people are likely reflecting more the popularity of the godfather movies and trends in American TV than cynicism about Plain people.

    Still, you’re right that many of us default to suspecting the worst.

    I keep getting reminded of X-Files episodes where people of similar lifestyles had a more “…we take care of our own.” mentality. It was the mystery of their practices keep you thinking the worst of what they were capable of(in the case of the X-Files, it almost always was).

    The thing is, it it’s “taken care of” wouldn’t Fred be aware of it? The burden released?

  5. Boris

    Rob and Cody… thanks for your perspective. Youŕe right, we are discussing a plot here… 🙂 /

    However, Brother Pilot raises an important point, even if maybe not immediately obvious from the few words he uses.

    I doubt Brother Pilot means anything of ill intent. He likely referring to a higher power catching up with them. Me I like the term Karma as it does tend to catch up with you. They may not be in jail but their lives are in upheaval and ruined. As to the Bike ninja well people tend to focus on the assassin aspect of ninjas. They tend to be excellent in information gathering and spying too.

    If Brother Pilot was speaking of judgement being rendered because God had their number … well He had that all along – for him to go from not speaking to speaking means that something changed … and that change is not based on an end-of-days-for-everybody construct but an event specific to our two assumed felons…

  8. Bicycle Bill

    According to what I know about Shakers — or “Shaking Quakers”, as they were sometimes called — they are an extremely pacifistic community.  I doubt that Brother Pilot or any of the older Shakers would be committing any sort of sub rosa acts resulting in death, injury, or disappearances.

    Sister Sprocket, on the other hand …. I could very easily see her kneecapping someone with her bike polo mallet.

  9. Michael T

    I agree Bicycle Bill. I am starting to wonder if Brother Pilot means something else. Nothing tragic. Quakers tend to except wayward souls willing to make amends. In their view that is justice.

    Boris, Rob and Cody: When we default to the ‘Lowest Common Denominator’, it just shows that we have been fully indoctrinated by our sensationalist media.
