Weird $1 Mail

Got an envelope in the mail it had $1.00 postage due. Well it was fairly thick, so thought it might have been something small ordered and forgotten. When opened up was treated to a diatribe about a dozen pages some printed off the Internet about, murderous Jehovah's Witnesses, super-men she-males, with hand written notes on the pages pointing out certain aspects of the articles, how they would make a great novel or song . . .
WOW that was the weirdest mail ever received, almost worth the $1.00 . . .

Shooters bibles, and other books about guns.

Music Baron stopped by, traded flyers.
