A continuation of the story about the wayward... sort of, second baseman.

issue no.415 :: Big in Japan, Hated in Venezuela
A small voyage into and away from something and nothing and everything. Which might sound deep, to a first year college student, but really means we didn't have a good idea of what the issue was about when we wrote this description.
