  Yes, I do too. Ripping off the righteous took in over $5 million from Kelowna last year, and one year Alpha or Omega took in over $40 million!

  The end of days types really fall hard for that sort of thing. One fellow professed faith from a waterfront home (rented) and naturally sent his kids to Christian school. He decamped with well over $12 million. Clyde Hood and group had a wonderful time, with an associate based in Seattle.

  I know, but if someone has to be the victim, it might as well be...

  Kelowna, in fact the entire Okanagan Valley, is a dessert
  environment, the fruit crops and orchards there all irrigated with
  water drawn from the series of mountain-fed rivers and lakes that run
  through it. This sort of environment was central to a classic of
  noir, or at least neo-noir (if that's important to you): Chinatown.
  The sequel dealt with unsuitable land development. Always lots of
  potential for noir in land development.

  Ripping off the righteous. I like it.
