    Old Hillary Hatin! .. you will not convince them.

    It's all an evil Clinton plot.

    No doubt, Hillary knew years ago this would happen, and planted some instructor at the college to warp this young man's mind .. they built a time machine out of all of those discarded pizza boxes and cigars ...

      and, based on your several questioning comments, good logic.

      I have time, date or link which specifically says that the spokeswoman's quote was directly related to the "game."

      Out of seven (I think) articles, three had the direct quote including this:

      "Kathleen and Gary are very proud of their son John's creativity and talent," Corcoran said. "He began this game as a class project at the Rhode Island School of Design, and he's now turned into an entrepreneur."

      from: http://cjonline.com/...

      This article is far more in-depth than the others and certainly appears to directly relate the quote you had asked about to the "game."

      It also has more detail about the addresses.

      "I prefer someone who burns the flag and then wraps himself in the Constitution than someone who burns the Constitution and then wraps himself in the flag!"

        and the it's a full stop.

        "Kathleen and Gary are very proud of their son John's creativity and talent," Corcoran said.  <<< Full stop.</p>

        "He began this game as a class project at the Rhode Island School of Design, and he's now turned into an entrepreneur."

        I just want the truth, the whole truth and nothing but it.

        The spokesperson's characterization does not necessarily link these together. The parent's can be proud, and not be aware of the details of the game. And yes, I say the 'quote' where the kid is saying "it's sort of become a family tradition" .. my son goes out with his pals and does stuff he would consider a 'family tradition' - and the parents may even come along once in a while - that doesn't mean the parents are on board with everything JR does.

        IF Mom and Dad come out and specifically talk about this particular little venture, I'd like to see that in print, with direct quotes from them.

        If you want to go far, go together.
        We have to go far, quickly."
