Blue by me for emphasis. I feel the same way about Rusty being on top of his schedule. Although there's been a lull in the violent crime specifically targeting LGBQT folks/neighborhood clusters - Not too long ago it was happening frequently. There was a stretch a couple 3 years ago where there were violent assaults happening A LOT. Many of my gay friends started sharing their late night/pre-dawn itineraries in case something should happen to one of them (FWIW - That was a pretty major shift of mindset IMO). BUT.... MOO.... I also think Rusty may have had a gut feeling that some specific part of Alan's early morning flight plan was potentially problematic. Not saying he was involved in whatever... just that his Spidey Sense kicked in for a reason (and he hasn't spoken of it yet).
