An excellent interpretation of the facts as we have them.

I hope people realize that these astute observations lead to yet another
filmic reference: "Leo and Laura's Excellent Adventure" which starred Lou
Diamond Phillips as Leo and Moon Unit Zappa as Laura (cameo by Bert Convy
as Dr. Jacoby). Leonard Maltin says: "Two kids dial up a load of coke from
a strange phonebooth, only to end up in the middle of Washington State with
blood on their hands."
