This is terrible!!! The authorities should use all their powers of investigation to find this crazed, deranged loonatic and charge him or her with the most severe charges according to the law. I really can't imagine how scary something like that must have been for you. You see I am a 9 to 5 cat who has been a ROLLING STONE fan for 40 years. I truly believe GOD has your backs but it won't hurt to shoot up a few more prayers. May you continue to thrill the earthly masses for many years to come. God bless everyone involved with "The Only Rockin Roll Band In The World, THE ROLLING STONES". (thesixthstone, Philadelphia)
