|Just a few basic thoughts:  
| - - I am curious why no one has mentioned the extremely likely
|possibility that BOB is the mysterious shut-in "Mr. Smith", Laura's
|"friend" on the Meals on Wheels program.

This was discussed a few weeks ago.  As with most theories, there
wasn't any consensus.  Some things point to him being BOB, others
indicate there's no way he could be BOB.

|- - Does Shelly really want Leo as a vegetable at home with her, so 
|she and Bobby can "hang donuts from his ears?"  Scaarry kids!

$5000 a month can be a great incentive.

|- - Something interesting - - Maddy got rid of her glasses, and still
|is hallucinating re: scary stuff and Killer BOBs.  

This could be evidence that Laura is alive.  She killed Maddy and took
over her life to try to escape from BOB.  But BOB found her anyways.

On the other hand, I don't think Laura would have been as frightened
of BOB as Maddy.  Near the end of her diary, Laura seems to have
come to terms somewhat with BOB, where she still hated him, but
wasn't really afraid of him.

On the third hand :-), if Laura thought she had got away from BOB,
she might be that frightened when she discovers she hasn't.

|- - Some great one-liners last night.  My personal favorite:  Jerry
|to Ben Horne:  "I am 100% certain that we are not sure!"

Jerry's one of my favorite characters.  He's always saying fun
things, and he certainly loves to eat and party!
