I will provide a few responses here. I don't have time to go dig into all these "threads." Richard and I are extremely busy with our work to ensure that all of you emerge from the intensive at the top of your skill level.
1) Your presumptions about the reasons for the intensive section divisions Tom posted today are incorrect. Those of you who think you've somehow been judged to be at a "remedial" level need to remember that you were all brought here for a reason. You are all exceptional people who've made a strong commitment to protecting this Island. You should not forget how greatly you are all valued when Mikhail is explaining to you how to refrain from pressing the "send" button fifteen times on your CocoPhones.
2) If notes regarding my house pet confuse you, that's not my problem. Nor is it my problem that I like Shakespearian references. How do you know I haven't secretly had her for more than three years? Did you stop by to check?
3) Whatever you think you heard around here and decided to share extensively, Aldo, you just made it obvious you weren't at your post. You know, I think it's been a while since we gave the latrines at the Hydra a thorough scrubbing. It's very generous of you to volunteer for this task and I'm sure everyone will appreciate it.
Colleen: Danny is hereby stationed with you at the Hydra indefinitely as per Harper's suggestion. I'm sure a great deal of extremely close proximity will do wonders for your marital problems. :) Oh, and please let Danny know my face is recovering just fine from his little mistake.
Richard: My mind is beginning to come up with all sorts of possibilities for what "things" you've been out doing. You should start to be more specific.
