The possibility that Nether Guy injured that puppy REALLY concerns me - abusing animals is often "practice" for abusing and harming people. Have you heard that puppy downstairs lately?

You're right about psychopaths wanting to get credit for their crimes. Clifford Olson (BC serial killer; Robert Hare uses him as a prime example of psychopathy) used his parole application appearances as an opportunity to taunt his victims' families.

Michael Holoday was a Canadian stockbroker who stole $20 million dollars from his clients (which included members of his own family and his in-laws). After he was caught, one of his in-laws wrote a book about him. When he heard about the book, he told the writer that he hoped that the book would be made into a movie, and that his part would be played by Tom Cruise.

That's right about animal abuse. These guys conspire together in their push-me/ pull-you dysfunction, so that they keep increasing the aggressions bit-by-bit. Often, though, he does explode at some point. And I'm pretty sure he has physically abused her.

I am glad to have the confirmation of the idea that psychos leave their calling card. I haven't accessed the link yet, though.

There was an interesting bit in this week's This American Life. I think you would like listening to it. It is about the pro-Wallace racist, A.Carter, who years later "changed his life" and wrote the Highschool Classic, "The Education of Little Tree." It is fascinating, and not unrelated to the topic of your comment.

Thanks for the This American Life suggestion - I will have to listen to it next week because we get the episodes a week later in Canada.

The link was to the amazon.ca entry for the book on the guy who stole $20mm from his clients. I mentioned him because his concern (when talking to the author) was more on who would play him in a movie adaptation of the book.

Robert Hare has written a book, "Snakes in Suits," about psychopaths in the business world. He said in a previous book ("Without Conscience") that, if he couldn't study psychopaths in prison, he'd study them at the Vancouver Stock Exchange. Here's the Amazon.com link:

ETA: I have one other question for you - is it possible that the Nethers pay a higher rent because both Nether Guy and the second dog live in the suite? That could explain why they're still living in your building.
