Has the A.C. Serial Killer Struck Again?

First thing I thought when I heard four bodies were found grouped together, near water, on Long Island earlier this week? Terry Oleson’s life is about to become a living hell again.

Lord Christie Needs New Fiefdom, Chooses Atlantic City

In His estimation, they chose “else.” Since I know more about A.C. than the round mound of Trenton ground ever will, I’ll just recycle a Tweet from this morning… Does the state take-over of A.C. include a man-made mountain…
