    Does there need to be a reconsideration of Patrick Kenzie? Given the violence and death that he doles out he could probably be someone's bad ass side kick. Or let's look at this another way -- Patrick, Angie, Bubba, Cheese, Kevin Hurilhey, Nelson, Phil, Danny & Iggy Twoomey ALL came from the same neighborhood and came up around the same time. This is as violent a group of characters that you are likely to find ANYWHERE in fiction.

    All I'm saying is that there was definitely something in the water.
