Clearing the planet, one dumpster at a time For our longtime, loyal readers and commenters (of all persuasions), I just want to say how much I appreciate your continued interest in things we're doing here at the underground bunker. This week, we got a huge influx of new folks as our stories went somewhat viral, but naturally, it was the OG friends of Runnin' Scared who tended to post the most memorable sayings and salutations.

Things started, of course, with Sunday morning's big bombshell, when Marty Rathbun made public an OSA document describing a 2006 investigation of South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Fortunately, that morning, I happened to be spending some time online, and spotted Rathbun's post within minutes of his putting it up. I called him for a quick quote, and then put up my own story, beating any other press by most of the day.

By the next morning, more than a hundred news organizations around the world were on the story, but by then I had up our second story, and this time with OSA documents only we were in possession of.
