Sad to hear about the passing of Jani Lane. Jani was a good guy and one of the best songwriters in the late 80s Dog Eat Dog-very underrated

help this young woman    

Linds was there. There was one bump of cocaine left. Linds wanted it, but Lanie did it up anyway. You can't expect her to just sit by and be stolen from, can you? What did he think was going to happen? Stupid, selfish man. Shawn will get her out of it.
