Thanks so much, Shannon, for diligently following the news reports, and for faithfully keeping us updated.

So, they are assessing his mental history and work skills, eh?

Um... Hey, Huntsville: I hear he's good at lying, faking, sexually assaulting women, weaseling out of trouble, playing "Mr. Mom," brainwashing whole congregations of faithful believers, planning kids' birthday parties, mixing up a mean milkshake, doing extensive pharmaceutical research, divorce "counseling," composing ghost-witten letters, doing CPR, dressing the dead single-handedly, making computers and printers disappear without a trace, story-telling, travel planning, jewelry brokering, fund-raising, heck, he can even act as his own attorney...

Oh, his skills are just endless!

Put him to good use in prison, okay?
