They ask that all night veils citizens be on the lookout for a man in a tan jacket, carrying a deer skin suit case. He is about I've or six foot something. Probably with hair and normal human features,
He was last seen early this morning on the unlit gravel paved stretch of oak trail, near Larry, Leroy House, out on the edge of town. The man in the TAN jacket was reportedly seen, indeed moonless black standing next to a refrigerator engulfed in flames. He was smoking. A cigarette witnessed, claimed he stared at them as they slowly drove by on the darkened country road. But despite the prolonged eye, contact the witness is still. Could describe his face to police, do ace? Prior the man in the ten jacket was seen standing in a park,
no one couldn't remember which park, but there are fairly certain. It was a park or maybe it was in the old Navy outlets store or near the invisible clock tower. It wasn't quite clear: either way the man was definitely standing with his deerskin suit case and staring up at the sun for hours. He followed the bizarre glowing orb, which is somehow the source of all light and life, and, oh god, the sun. Are you kidding us with this thing? We don't even have time for that mystery. The secret police then interjected
secret police officials added that if you see a man in a tan jacket carrying a deerskin suit case right down, what you see immediately, the city Council has temporarily lifted their ban on pens and pencils so that citizens can help law enforcement on this matter. Once you write down your encounter call. Nine one one immediately or simply say: hey police out loud, all being monitored, almost twenty four seven, so they'll! Probably here you just fine Let's go now to traffic, there is a car, it's not in nice, veil or even in the desert that cradles our little town. It's out some.
Where, beyond that, there are many. Cars there, but I'm It only about one blue, whose square inch with tyres and windows and an engine that works most of the time, a woman his driving it. And she is also glancing whenever she can at the child in the passenger seat. He is a child, but he is fifteen you understand she Glancing at him, but she is not saying anything, and he not saying anything either she wants to cry or she wants to push him out of the car or she to go back in time and insist on using a condom only She would never do that. She didn't change any of this really not for all the money piles
of money, some of it defunct money from defunct and absent governments. She wouldn't give any of this back. So she drives her car blue squares with irish and windows, engine that works most of the time. And she glances at the fifteen year old child and neither of them speaks. This has been traffic and now the weather Anna
ladies and gentlemen during the break.
I received a call from some one claiming to be an angel. Now don't know. If this was a pie, or not as no one has ever actually proven that they ve talked to HU an angel. Even old woman, Joseph Word is just that her word but listeners. I think This had to have been an angel because my face became hot, and the voice, and every part of my body and tears called blowing down my face, the instant I touched, the phone receiver and the whole oh room, was lit up in well. How Can I described this a bright black aim illuminating every atomic detail?
the angel, if that, Indeed, who called the the angel said that the man in the ten jacket with the deerskin suit case was from. A place underneath the earth. Underneath our knowledge of them, world right below our feet. I ask for more The angel- if that is indeed who called whispered only a flower in the desert, and it filled me with ecstasy and the red- then the call ended and the black ray of truth was gone, and I was breathless And alone
dear listeners, the silence, while it is, unlike any silence. You have ever not heard. So our mystery man remains unfound and I still, not sure why an angel would have to use a telephone but for now. We can only know what we know and is that we don't know Thank you again for listening listeners. I look forward to another fine year, a new year well spent with all of you, there.
