Well, Merry Christmas to you, too!

On the day that we Celebrate the Birth of our Lord and Savior, or the advent of more daylight ahead, or whatever this time of year represents…  we have Mitchum brandishing a weapon…

But let’s take stock of the story so far- Editor Bill Ellis sees a news story on CNN about protesters in the Great dismal Swamp, figures this might be right up Mark Trail’s trail (so to speak,) and rents him an 80’ yacht.  Mark takes Cherry on a vacation aboard the yacht, we are introduced to Justin Holland and his “Partner” Mitchum. Holland finds himself invited to spend some time on the yacht, Mitchum grows immediately wary of the possibility that Mark Trail will convince Holland to pull the plug on the mine project, so Mitchum hires a couple of goons to what- drive him to the SWAN, to what- pull a Clutter Family Experience on board the SWAN and motor off?  And blame it on the placard waving zealots protecting the swamp? But Mitchum, dude, now you have two witnesses to your crime, and how are you going to handle that??  Couldn’t you just have found your own way out there???  Oh, never mind.

Well, on that cheery note, Merry Christmas everyone.  Find some time and some peace in the season.  Count your blessings.  Laugh, smile, seek understanding.  We are all in this together…
