Not Guilty! Judge Exonerates Defendants in Robert Wone Case

Robert Wone PostersThree Dupont Circle men accused of conspiring to cover up the 2006 murder of D.C. attorney Robert Wone will go free.

Judge Lynn Leibovitz on Tuesday exonerated defendants Joseph Price, Victor Zaborsky and Dylan Ward in the sensational trial which captivated Washington for weeks. The three housemates were charged with conspiracy and obstruction of justice. Price was also on trial for evidence tampering.

"It is very likely that Mr. Price pulled the murder weapon from Mr. Wone's chest," Leibovitz said. But, the judge added, she couldn't say beyond a reasonable doubt whether he did so with the intent to obstruct justice. Leibovitz further concluded that Price "very likely tampered with and altered the murder weapon," though she couldn't establish beyond a reasonable doubt what his motivations were. In short, the government simply failed to prove its case.

"We all understand and accept the judge's verdict," prosecuting U.S. Attorney Glenn Kirschner told reporters following the announcement. Kirschner said the investigation of Wone's murder "will remain open."

The victim's widow, Kathy Wone, bolted the courtroom immediately following the verdict. She plans on pursuing a $20 million wrongful death civil suit against the men.

Robert Wone was found stabbed to death in the home of the exonerated defendants at 1509 Swann Street NW on the night of Aug. 2, 2006. Authorities believed the three men who lived in the house were in some way connected to the slaying. The trio, all gay men involved in a "polyamorous" domestic relationship, had claimed they weren't culpable in the murder of their visitor or any subsequent cover-up. They said they were all sleeping when Wone, who was staying the night as a guest in their million-dollar townhouse following a late night at work, was murdered by some unseen intruder wielding one of their kitchen knives. The defendants theorized the intruder entered through an unlocked back door.

But there was circumstantial evidence that suggested otherwise. There were no signs that anything in the house had been disturbed, or rifled through, for instance. Authorities believe that, if there had truly been an intruder that night, he or she would have likely been a burglar–yet no items of value, including Wone's wallet and BlackBerry, went missing the night of his slaughter. Also, some of Wone's blood was unaccounted for: while there were two blood spots on a pull-out couch he was found atop, and a little blood on a towel Price claimed to have used to apply pressure to the victim's wounds, Wone likely bled a lot more as he was stabbed three times: twice in the chest and once in the abdomen. That implies the housemates cleaned up some of his blood. Another thing that casts suspicion on the trio was Wone's perfect wounds. They showed no sign that he had moved as a kitchen knife plunged into him over and over.

Throughout the case, the prosecution has come up with various scenarios regarding what happened to Wone the night he died, everything from the defendants sexually assaulting Wone to the defendants paralyzing Wone with a toxin to Price's sometimes drug-addled brother allegedly killing Wone. But the proesecution wasn't able to back up the narratives with enough evidence to convict. Though the prosecution aptly conveyed that something mysterious happened to Wone on a muggy August evening in Dupont Circle, Leibovitz was only interested in what could be proved.

"A trier of fact must be convinced," the judge said.

UPDATE, 1:30 p.m.: An excerpt from the judge's final order explains exactly why she didn't find the defendants guilty of a cover up:

"Despite the many suspicious and even damning circumstances, despite the implausibility of the intruder story, and despite the discordant and inappropriate demeanor and conduct of the defendants, I am constrained to conclude that the government has not eliminated, beyond a reasonable doubt, the real possibility created by what I have termed the “math problem” in this case. It is very probable that the government’s theory is correct, that even if the defendants did not participate in the murder some or all of them knew enough about the circumstances of it to provide helpful information to law enforcement and have chosen to withhold that information for reasons of their own. Nevertheless, after lengthy analysis of the evidence I conclude that the government has failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt the essential elements of obstruction of justice as to Mr. Price, Mr. Zaborsky or Mr. Ward. I further find that, for the same reasons,that the government has failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt as to each defendant that he joined a conspiracy to obstruct justice. I find also, for all of the reasons I have stated, that the government has failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Mr. Price committed the offense of tampering with evidence.

My verdicts represent my effort to fairly and impartially follow the rule of law. My focus on the difference between “moral certainty” and “evidentiary certainty” in this case is probably cold comfort to those who loved Robert Wone and wish for some measure of peace or justice, and I am extremely sorry for this. I believe, however, that the reasonable doubt standard is essential to maintaining our criminal justice system as the fair and just system we wish it to be."


UPDATE, 4:05 p.m: The defense team for Ward–David Schertler, Robert Spagnoletti and Veronica Jennigns–have issued the following statement regarding the verdict.

"On behalf of Dylan Ward we are extremely gratified by judge Leibovitz's verdicts of not guilty on all counts as to all three defendants. As we have said since the murder of Mr. Wone, Mr. Ward is completely innocent of any wrongdoing in this matter. Mr. Ward also continues to express his deepest sympathies to the family of Robert Wone for their tragic loss and hopes that the person who committed this crime will some day be brought to justice."

    Wow. Even though I think they may be guilty, it was smart of their lawyers to choose a bench trial instead of a jury trial. That probably saved them.

  • WardQueen

    Thankfully these men can get on with their lives although that will be tough. Could have been a burglar but more likely an Internet liason gone bad.

    Will be interesting to see all those whose lives have been solely focused on the lurid details of "Who Murdered Robert Wone" scurry to get off the island as their "Lord of the Flies" world collapses.

    Doubtful that Kathy Wone's civil suit will move forward. More likely is a defamation suit for "the flies". Joseph Price is, after all, an intellectual property specialist with an obsessive personality and a lot of time on his hands.

  • Jesse Helms

    3 fairies can commit a crime and get no jail time.

  • Rick Mangus

    This is what happens when you have an inept and incompetent police department and US Attorney's office! My advice to the citizens of the District of Columbia is move to Maryland or Virginia, because morons are running things here!

  • If it walks like a duck

    WardQueen did you choose the name because you are a sub of Dylan Ward? The civil suit will go on....

  • WardQueen

    Duck, don't know and have never met the defendants, never been into S&M, but I did find the lurid, perverse, mob mentality of you and the rest of the WMRW scenesters appalling. Typically you attack anyone with a difference of opinion, that is standrad WMRW.

    These men, guilty or innocent will truly never get their lives back either. For me though justice will be equally served in that you and the rest of the WMRW demimond will never truly be able to wash off the stench.

    It will be interesting if that site stays up for some sane person to revisit it in a year or so.

  • J

    Just wait - one of them will slip up, tell the wrong person, and everyone will know the truth about these sickos.

  • ZZ

    My one time deliberating on a jury, all the jurors could agree that if a friend told us the story of the case, we'd be certain that the defendant was guilty--but with everything laid out by the prosecution, there were still gaps in the prosecution's theory (and ours!), and we couldn't convict. This case has reminded me of that experience--all the circumstantial evidence points to Ward & Joe having done it, but there's just no proof. Poor Mrs. Wone--but I think it was the right verdict.

  • pooteeweet

    As people gleefully proclaim "Not Guilty!," they would be wise to read the judge's decision carefully. She concedes that the defendants' collective story doesn't add up, but the government failed to prove its case beyond a shadow of a doubt.

    Price, Ward, or Zaborsky will slip up. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but it'll happen. And one day Robert and his family will get the justice they deserve. It's very likely they'll win the civil suit, so at least the three monsters won't get off without paying some kind of price.

  • Blue Pen

    Yeah, someone will slip up. They'll be playing golf in Boca, then go to Las Vegas and enter someone's hotel room illegally and get busted that way.

    Just like OJ.

    They will slip.

  • Mikey

    You bet someone will slip up. Remember: any one of these three, at any point in the future, can still be charged with murder and, if the government proves its case beyond a reasonable doubt, convicted. Not on this evidence, clearly, and not on the theory here presented by the government--but that possibility is NOT foreclosed. Justice awaits these three.

  • Rick Mangus

    'Mikey', you have more faith in this so-called police department than 97% of the people in this city including myself! MPD has a bunch of dumb asses in their detective squad who are just there to collect a pay check and nothing more, no drive to do whats right in bring criminals to justice. Look at ALL the screw-ups in this case by MPD, there is no justice in this town. Ask the family of the man shot by US Park police in Trinidad over a year ago, they will never see justice and that a fact!

  • sedcdude

    3 GUILTY deviants get off sky free, a closeted, COWARDICE, retarded bigot has internet access (JESSE HELMS) and civil, reasonable and necessary posts get censored....go figure!

  • Jay

    The judge knows that they committed the murder or where there when it was committed. The judge knows that they conspired to cover up the crime scene because it was just too difficult to get rid of the body. However the judge could not find them guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. I respect her decision.

    These gay murder cases are the hardest to prove because they tend to clam up and surround themselves with the best attorneys. Don't blame the police. Only ignorant people do that because they have no one else to blame. If you need to blame someone blame these three misfits who killed Mr. Wone.

  • Rick Mangus

    Here is what get's me about this case and all the red flags here!

    1) Why did Robert Wone stay at their house? The claim is that it was late 10:30pm or 11pm late, come on! The claim is that he lived in Oakton, Va., Oakton is not that far away it's not like Frederick, Md. or Fredericksburg, Va. and METRO go right there (Vienna Station), his wife could of picked him up!

    2) Out of all the streets in the city and all the houses on Swann St. why did a murderer pick this house? The person or persons that killed Wone had only that intent in mind, nothing was taken from the house so it wasn't robbery! There was also no sign of forced entry and most burglars strike in the day to advoid running into people and most do it for drug money.

    3) If MPD gave a shit and did there job they would of found out that Price, Ward and Zaborsky had a reputation in the gay community of having drug parties and also sold
    drugs out of the Swann St. house! Why have a GLBT unit if you don't gleam intelligence from it!

    This whole case was a screw-up from the get go thank to our wonderful police department and US Attorney, so go out commit a crime in DC more that likely you will not be caught and if you are, you will get off in court!

  • Rob Stofferson

    They killed him plain and simple. I'm in agreement with WardQueen this was Craiglist/Internet 'hook-up' gone bad.

  • M!Lk

    No statute of limitations on murder. That's alooong time to live with a demon. Maybe not today, or next week or 2 years from now, but the universe will balance. "Justice" is arbitrary and objective; The Truth is patient.

  • Circle

    Rick Mangus - You have the most ignorant attitude toward MPDC and the USDA. Is this all you know?

  • Rick Mangus

    'Circle', both organizations are a bunch of FUCK UP'S! Ask any police officer from Virginia and Maryland and a majority of them would describe both as a bunch of clowns, oh! by the way I am a former member of the Arlington County Police Dept., so I know first hand!

  • sedcdude

    They not only took this dudes butt, they took his life!

    What a helluva' way to kick off your gay rights agenda!

  • Michelle Wise

    Unfortunately, it is common knowledge that many of the reports submitted by MPDC officers have helped lose plenty of cases. It's the very reason that Chief Ramsey ramped up the educational requirements for entry on his force--and for that, he was criticized. Go figure.

  • badger76


    Kathy and Robert Wone had only one car. Typically, they commuted to work together. However, shortly before the murder, Kathy Wone had hip surgery. To accommodate staying late for a DC Bar seminar and a late-night visit to his employer's offices to meet the night staff at Radio Free Asia and an early morning meeting, Robert arranged to stay over night in DC so his wife would not need to pick him up at the subway station. Robert and Joe Price both attended William and Mary, knew each other from college, and had remained friends after college and law school. In fact, Joe Price had visited Kathy Wone following her hip surgery.

    There was nothing as nefarious as your comment infers. I suggest you learn the facts.

  • Shawquanetta

    These faggots got away with turning Wone into some General Tso's chicken.

  • Rick Mangus

    'Badger76', First off late to many people is not 10pm or 11pm, as far as the condition of Mrs. Wone, ok but at all of the Maryland and Virgina subway stations taxi's congregate late to pick up those late riders, thats a fact! Another fact is the needle marks on Wone's left arm three to be exact! Another fact, the drug activity at the Swann St. house is well known in the 17th street gay community! So I do know the facts!

  • TomDC

    When the police say they're homophobes and when they say they charged these men because they were homosexuals, maybe we should take MPD at it's word. At least on that.

    Stupid stupid case start to finish.

  • Rick Mangus

    Make, Michelle Rhee the next Chief of Police, if she ran this ship of fools things whould change real fast! Have performance standards just like for teachers for ALL the officers of the department, and I am not kidding this time, I'm being very very serious!

    Thankfully you didn't defer to that Lynch Blog as most reporters do.

    New headline 2/18/2011 - U.S. Attorney General Holder Called To Testify In Wone Civil Trial

    I see the Civil jury trial is going to be a long, tedious trial and I trust Judge Rankin to preside this case as the Judge has long outstanding track record in the homicide cases. As for WhoMurderedRobertWone, I don't recommend new people to blog because the editors are not accepting new bloggers. Only the "regulars" are allowed to blog, "as I have been told by many people to this day." Anyone is welcome here.

  • SwannToo

    I don't know about you but Craig Brownstein at WhoMurderedRobertWone was "pretty mad" when I posted the other day:

    SwannToo on 02/17/2011 at 9:58 AM
    Bill O, boof, and Kate – If you go back and read “Ranking Rankin,” Rich and Denton were predicting there may be criminal charges come out from Civil Trial by Judge Rankin. The prediction was still vivid in my mind because I remember the line “fasten your seat belts” and Denton added “it will be a wild ride.”

    PeterZ on 02/17/2011 at 10:51 AM
    I agree with Swann Too.

    Rich even discussed criminal charges coming out of the Civil case on the radio show with “dialing the Chief Lanier” on his very last post but then we don’t see him anymore here.

    He addressed it very early on. As early as since THE STAUS HEARING WITH JUDGE HEDGE.

    Sorry about the caps.


    Craig on 02/17/2011 at 11:26 AM
    PeterZ – You agree with SwannToo because you’re one in the same? At least you share the same IP address. What’s up with that? Please explain to us offline.

    What does it tell you? Should anyone consider this website "credible," "fair," "justice," for Robert Wone? OR should you consider WhoMurderedRobertWone is (not for Robert, but) for Craig Brownstein AND "his empire?"

    We want to hear your comments. BTW we won't "delete" you (hopefully the City Paper won't delete you).

    Justice and fairgame for "everyone" including Robert.

  • PeterZ

    Hi SwannToo, It was me. Glad you discovered that. It appeared that Craig thought we are "troll" to hack on his site but I chimed in with a big bang on my head. I left. What a coincident! Now it looks as if we all are "troll" if we are not Craig's "favorites" or his "regulars."

    Can't help but going public here that WhoMurderedRobertWone shut the rest of people out if you don't contribute something to the editors. I mean if you just read and don't post, you'd be fine. If you want to drop in they will "grill you" thinking you are hackers.

    In a modern world, does not comply with the basic or standard of blog. It has its own agendas. It is prejudial, and it is not for public.

    Wait til you see how he knock out Bob Baker below:

    Craig on 02/18/2011 at 2:02 PM
    Baker’s comment was deleted. He appeared to be a troll, perhaps the same one who’s been plaguing the site for the past 2 days. If you’re the real deal Baker, drop us a line and we’ll correct the record.

    I think, kinda know him from somewhere, this guy (Bob Baker) is real and I hope he gets back to Craig to set the record. We, the rest of us, are real too but we just don't need to get back at WhoMurderedRobertWone just to get snapped at by Craig Brownstein, or by "his regulars/favorites," or by "his people."

    I don't know if there is a "protocol" in blogging but if we are "on topics" but get kicked out, what do you do?

    Bob Baker, if you are out there, let us know how it goes. We would like your comments about the case and your venture with

    Craig, if you read this, I want you to know that people share same IP address everywhere.

    If you are sitting at the courthouse's cafeteria and email to your boss while your colleague, who is sitting right next to you, emailing your assistant, both you and your colleague are "sharing same IP address."

    Also, you and your co-editors can be emailing from the same Starbucks but on different computers, AND, again, "sharing the same Starbucks' IP address." OR, you are emailing us from Edelman's IP address while your boss may be also replying us our messages here.

    It does not take a genius or a Houston Commander, to explain this. What else can I tell you?

    So ends up having about 15 "regulars" all year round. Let me see, SheDidIt, SheKnowsSomething, Clio (the long and winding road), Carolina, Susan, AnnaZed, CDinDC, CatfromCleveland, Bill Orange, Alternateguy, Bill 2, HoyaLoya, Bea, Craig, Michael, Doug, may be a few more.

    These bloggers should sign an agreement with "Duracell" batteries commercial because they last this long. The batteries that they use probably are "top of the line" product.

    Just sayin...

  • Randy Weiss

    Hey Brownstein,

    I chose to reply you here because birds told me that you like shooting posters out cold and I personally don't think you're worth for us to reply "you and your loner regular sharks" on your website.

    Not that I am afraid that I will get shot, but because I think you are a cult leader.

    First of, you technically approves "profanity, vulgar language" of AnnaZed. She said, "...what the fuck are you talking about? Besides, without Clio this would be a dull place."

    Really, Brownstein? You "enjoy" these people indulging you to a pleasure of "bad taste" language. What kind of professional are you?

    Secondly, "...but I must also defend Clio’s honor!," said Bea. Wow. I want to hire you but would you accept this rose?

    Thirdly. Oh, Dear Susan, "...As for me, this blog would be so much less than it is if not for the wonderful and amazing nonpareil Clio, and Clio’s posts. The writing, the wit, the humor, the insight, the history–did I mention wit? History? Charm? Wit? Wit? And beauty too. I’m an unabashed fan."

    No joke, Susan! The babbling wit friend of yours makes me wanna "gag my fish."

    How many weddings are we talking about here?

    Back to the business, Craig:

    As I've said earlier, I've seen your stories since day one but have no interest to drop in. Disarray, I mean confusion, disorder, and the lack of "good taste." To be exact, your bloggers "attack everyone" under the sun - not only defendants, the Judge, lawyers, you and your regulars attack other bloggers.

    The difference of "reporting" and "blogging" is WhoMurderedRobertWone ATTACKS PEOPLE.

    Exactly what I do for a living? I'd tell you next time you come to see me.

    As far as Clio, I must point out that she's not "aligned" like normal people. Judging from your comments yesterday after my posting, there is a “Club,” if not a "Cult Club," and you organized it.

    Your “Thought Police?” I would call the "F Bomb Club."

    Your bloggers are capable of embarrasing you, if not your career, Brownstein.

    N.B. Below are some of the highlights of WhoMurderedRobertWone yesterday. There is a "consequence" if one were to post his/her comments on this website. You get a circle of the "regular sharks bite" as if you are an alien or on defendants' team.

    What a pleasure of the editors to having the luxurious of recruiting these "loners regular sharks" to bite other blogger's head off days/nights non-stop!


    Randy Weiss on 03/07/2011 at 1:09 PM
    You know, several of us here have naturally been reading this website for a while. At times, we’re enlightened. Other times, we’re amused. Most times, we’re ticked off! We still don’t seem to understand the disarray on the site. I see some people talk about dozens of items that have no bearing on the case.

    I also see some who post away just to hear/see themselves speak – Clio, for example. Most of the postings are interesting. But when certain posters drive us off the road, we all lose focus on the case. Editors, Can you try to keep us ‘Who Do This For A Living’ at least feel “our work has some merit?”

    AND five "mission to control the case" replies:

    1. Reply Craig on 03/07/2011 at 4:44 PM
    "Randy – I’m not sure I understand what you mean by disarray. It looks mostly arrayed to me. You do what exactly for a living? If it’s the law, then where have you been during the last month in which seven key plaintiff and defense filings have been posted and discussed?"

    Sounds very "I'm totally innocent."

    2. Reply AnnaZed on 03/07/2011 at 4:56 PM

    "Not to dogpile, but I am curious about your comment re “who do this for a living.” A number of us are lawyers – and a new one is always welcome especially since our practices are quite varied. And perhaps I’m one of the posters who “drive us off the road” as well but I must also defend Clio’s honor!"

    No kidding. Will you do "Pro Bono" for my grandmother. She's in a nursing home and she needs your "lawyering" help?

    "Thanks, fellow goddesses and members of the Thought Police: we’ve really been at this noble effort for a long time, and it’s seems as if the defense camp’s patience is finally wearing thin. To me, that means that we and our Editors are doing exactly what any stoic hero or heroine of antiquity would be doing if they had only had computer access and literacy back then. We’re seeking the truth, and some people, who may be largely fellow travelers of the cult of Culuket, cannot handle the truth!"

    Geeez! You're so "Goddard." I don't even know what that means!

    Asked PPF

    Peter Paul Fuchs on 03/15/2011 at 8:36 PM
    Can someone fill me in on what has been going-on vis-a-vis this site and confidentiality? Not that I ever believed in it, or counted on it. Because after living on Swann Street for 15 years I was treated to seeing someone being carried out in a body-bag one night. So I had a deep sense that surreality would embrace every aspect of this case. Those three creeps can go to hell for all I care, but I was still surprised to find my email spread around the internet in connection with certain postings I made on this site. not that I regret one of them. And some seem misattributed by apparent complex computer snafu, but not all, that is the point. Anyways, as Nietzsche said, “All great spirits need a mask.” I am not sure how “great” my spirit was when posting such commentaries, particularly since they happened in the cocktail (wine) hour, but still it was useful to have the “mask” of a screen name.. In a way it was all a variation on a theme. Namely, there have always been a certain number of creeps in the neighborhood, and the only way to deal with them is directly, to call them out. I hope to never cross paths with the defendants, but if I do, I will calmly tell them what total disasters of humanity they are. And what damage they have done to the local gay community, along with their creepy friends who defended them, who make me sick. I would simply like to know what happened, in the revelation of the emails.. I have not been following the whole matter for some time. Please fill me in.


    AnnaZed on 03/15/2011 at 9:16 PM
    “…I was still surprised to find my email spread around the internet in connection with certain postings I made on this site.

    Wait a minute … what is this? I know nothing of this. That could be worse than when Gawker spewed my email and passwords to Russian spambots (and that was bad). Seriously, wtf? Please elaborate.


    Of all bloggers of, AnnaZed uses f... words more often than the rest. I think we have problems here Brownstein. Do you know that is an abusive language and should not be posted on ANY website? You certainly entertain your loved ones this way and allow them to blog away as they're pleased, aren't you, Brownstein?

    What happened in WhoMurderedRobertWone, did not stay in Wmrw. It goes public, and on the record.

    Ben Franklin, an unfrequent poster, dropped by to voice his "opinion."

    BenFranklin on 04/19/2011 at 7:38 PM
    The defendants cannot sit down and talk to the widow and it’s silly to say they should given what they’ve been through. No one is going to talk or “keep talking.”

    MPD is clearly trying to cover their record of malicious incompetence with the cloak of privilege. Sadly the widow and the defendants are both victims of the MPD.

    I think everyone agrees that homeowners policy should pay the widow for her loss–and to its limit. A great defense combined with the botched police work might make a jury award worth less.

    Craig Brownstein, the leading editor, replied - twice! Followed by his "hound dogs" to go after Ben.

    The simple answer is that Ben Franklin is making things up. Again.

    We’d be wise to heed the real Ben Franklin who said, “Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain and most fools do.”

    Ben – You were caught lying here and nothing you say can be trusted. This site operates on the honor system, and you have none. You’re a constant irritant who contributes zero, and an insufferable, whiny brat. Go fuck yourself. Twice.

    "What would you do" (pretending this is an ABC series) if you were participating in and the editor gives you a finger?

    Earlier on, Bea (a California lawyer) was going after JuChen to get her to "spit it out, girl" on Wmrw.

    Funny how you two aren’t interested in providing your opinions or discussing the civil case or what might occur in solving the murder. I guess that’s not the point of coming here, huh?

    Bea, darling, guess what other pairs are not interested in getting to the truth? Could it be Vic and Joe, Joe and Dyl, Dyl and Scott, etc.?

    Unfortunately, the slow wheels of justice have temporarily emboldened Team Price and their fellow travelers — like the Confederacy’s win at Fredericksburg, that glow won’t last for long! Kisses, Clio.

    What a crowd at Wmrw. If you are not "one like them," don't go there. They'll "trash you out" worse than a dog.

    This case is moving toward a Status Hearing on May 5, 2011, at 1:45 p.m. Judge Michael L. Rankin has already expressed his willing to decide on the case. I can only imagine that he is determined to move "mountains of the Fifth" to get to the bottom of the case before the Jury Trial begins in October 2011.

    A lot of repeated comments on Maybe they just run out of things to comment about and waiting for new people to discard and show how tight bond they are. Don't go there if you dare. You will not be welcomed, I assure you. They are just waiting to dump and despite you. Just so you know.

    Totally freaky, totally creepy! Whomurderedrobertwone website is working overtime on re-run!!! I can't believe that these names come up over and over - bea, susan, cdindc, clio, annazed, boofoc, bill orange, bill2, gloria, craig and occasional his partners doug. Have they ever read what they wrote, like in forever rewind? God or Allah help them get lives.
