The thief was giving Haskoll a look that said, Man, why NOT the pelican?

      2. I would too! When I lived in CA, we drank water out of a well. Many of us that lived on that same street got cancer. I was one of them. My surgeon told me not to drink the water anymore, and after that I didn’t. My husband never drank the water, and didn’t get cancer.
