The Solteldo-Barton Affair
Episode 247 strikes a little close to home for me. Having spent 25 years working in a newsroom with very little security, the possibility of an indignant individual bursting in with a gun and opening fire because he didn’t like what was printed, was a constant (albeit low-grade) fear. In this case, when the bullets start flying and witnesses start ducking out the door, it’s hard to tell who shot who.
