"It is believed that the infamous 1930s bank robber John Dillinger used this room before he was arrested in a Tucson neighborhood...." May I ask: B Y W H O M? Certainly not by anyone who knows the first damnthing about those events. These kinds of preposterous little lies are glibly tossed off only by those wishing to hype the hotel. "Some believe..." is always a tipoff that somebody's trying to blow a forest fire's worth of smoke up one's skirt. But it's in print, and it stands. It will be picked up by future writers and passed along ad nauseum as gospel until it finally becomes "true".
It confounds me that Mr. Danehy, or anyone else, could have a soft spot in their heart for poor ol' picked-on MacDonald's. Lookit: The woman required skin graphs fertheluvagod. That's not hot, it's freakin' unexcusably, criminally hot. What if the coffee had be spilled on a child? He/she could have been disfigured for life, because Ronald thinks first about the needs of some few suburban commuters, and then – if ever – about anything else. Much in the trial centered on how hot is "hot," and how hot does "hot" really need to be? The court had all the facts; Mr. Danhey obviously had/has few/none. Perhaps Mr. D. could answer those questions for us instead of offering a shoot-from-the-hip, tea party "harrumph!"
