Good Lord! Alts experience sounds like something out of an Elmore Leonard crime fiction novel. The crooks therein are always just a touch stupid, or accident prone, or just plain unlucky. Glad it came out OK. But it does seem to me that if Alt spent more time blogging (and working in general) and less time prowling around strange towns with his misfit friends (lawyers, all, no doubt), then the chances of things like happening would be lessened!
