As has been mentioned numerous times before, it would be hardly be unexpected,
inappropriate, or otherwise bad form for part of the story to hinge upon
Albert, that swell guy and self-important snotnosed twit he, being WRONG, being
so goddamned cocksure of himself and how much better he is than the local
hayseed police force that he just plain MISSES something (perhaps even
something that [Ubizmo forbid], Truman DOES catch).

Sorry if this sounds a little too double entendrish.  Look for significance
where there's none intended...
