  1. FB friend requests please note, I will not be 'friending' people on FB who appear under a different name on FB than, here. I am tired of adding friends that make me think 'And ..who is that?'.

comment Why did Hank not associate THE CAPN with 'Captain Cook'?
@iandotkelly You and wbogacz might have come up with the best theory.. At least a better one than 'Hank was just really bad at making connections between groups of letters'.

@wbogacz In longer consideration, I'm thinking your comment added to the comment by iandotkelly‚ô¶ might constitute an answer. If not a definitive answer, it would constitute a plausible theory. Would you upgrade it to an answer?

comment Why did Hank not associate THE CAPN with 'Captain Cook'?
@iandotkelly He thought he'd caught Heisenberg until he was sitting in the loo at Walter's home and found Walt Whitman's 'Leaves of Grass' with an inscription.. I see no huge difference between that and realizing he was wrong about Captain Cook.

comment What was Dan Wachsberger charged with (charge and evidence)?
"he has a lot of explaining to do" - "Oh that? It belongs to a client, and what with client-attorney privilege, I can say no more.." (Does client attorney privilege even apply here?) - It just seems to me that if the lawyer was prepared to 'lose the money', he should have had some squirming room. Now, I might accept that he just 'lost it' when confronted by Steve Gomez and spilled the beans, but I really cannot understand how they could have made a case against (eg) someone as tough/resolute as Mike or as slimy/clever as Saul if they had been found in the exact same situation.

comment What was Dan Wachsberger charged with (charge and evidence)?
"Likely bribery," OK I'll accept that 'bribery' seems logical, given the bank employee who had helped him had apparently rolled over, but.. "possession of stolen money" ..was it? Stolen, I mean. Surely this was money that had already been laundered once. It started as drug money, which would be worse given the U.S. has a 'we can grab everything' policy once profit from drugs is involved, but how was it 'stolen money'?
