A reader’s note on Lebaron

A reader wrote “that it’s possible that the Lebaron kid was released not due to ‘non-violent resistance’ but because Keith Raniere, Clare Bronfman, Emiliano Salinas, or some other rich Nxian actually did secretly pay the $1 million ransom, to ensure a happy ending for Vanguard’s movie.

“It’s not like they didn’t have the money, or the motivation.

“It’s nonetheless genuinely sad that another Lebaron was ultimately killed.”
