Wouldn’t your cousin’s interests be unaffected?? Unless he sold you the land on a Land Contract or something and there are still payments to be made?? OK, I know I over-think these things and there is only so much detail one could fit into the daily frames before it would become completely stalled and unreadable… Sort of like Star Wars Episode I, II and III (not IV, V and VI) where we were treated to a terribly boring story line about how Jedi Knights were dispatched to break an impasse over what? Embargoes and Trade routes? <<yawn>> and that set the tone for the entire movie… complete with votes of no-confidence in the Galactic Senate <<double yawn>> and Jedis protecting Politicians (OK, now that’s just stupid…)
But I digress.
Certainly one thing that’s nice, though, is that Mitchum feels compelled to share everything about his motivations, which certainly helps move the story along… “So don’t ‘Buddy’ me,” says Mitchum… “I have a plan and I am going to execute on it!”
