A Bad Seed buys it.

Back on this date in 1935, while papers were filled with stories regarding the shooting of Dutch Schultz and his cohorts in Newark, NJ, across town a small time New York City hood named Al Stern, was found dead in a cheap boarding house.
Since he was found in the same city where the Schultz massacre took place, right away it was assumed that he some how played a part in it. Some papers said that he was the gunman who mowed down the Dutchman and his confederates while others said that he may have been the man who acted as a spotter for the killers and was killed himself afterwards. I however believe otherwise. What do I think? Well, the full story on Stern can be found here.

Hey, didn't there used to be a Kindle version of Bad Seeds? What's up with that?

BTW, Bad Seeds is highly recommended, regardless of format. Although I'd advise you to steer clear of the stone tablet edition. It's really heavy.

Not sure what happened. I think it was there this morning. Re: the stone tablet edition, not only is it heavy but its a pain to carve.

PS, thanks for the putting in a good word.
