On Josie and Ben:

My theory is that Josie is working with Ben only because she has been
threatened or is being blackmailed.  Supporting evidence:

(1)  Hank (who clearly worked with Ben and Leo before going to jail)
calls Josie and seems to be threatening her.

(2)  Josie tells Truman that she is afraid her husband was murdered and
that they may try to kill her.

(3)  She hardly seems happy to see Ben in their scene together in the last

Finally, some gut instinct:  I think she's one of the good people.  On
the other hand, some other characters have seemed clearly one way and
now look the other, Bobby especially.
