Hey, that sorta rhymes!
Anyway, Jenny read “Public Enemies” a book about John Dillinger, Baby
Face Nelson, the Barkers, Bonnie and Clyde, and all those other 1930s
outlaws.  And when she was telling me that Nelson was shot a

I just received an e-mail from Greg Stolze, a roleplaying game designer whose work I greatly respect and enjoy– Particularly his work on the excellent RPG Unknown Armies.
