So stick to your guns, and don’t let the Pinkertons take you alive. Recently, the security company that owns the IP attached to the vernarable complicated and tarnished name of Pinkerton decided to send a cease and desist letter to Rockstar games requesting payment for use of their name in Red Dead Redemption 2.

I won’t say that 2016 and the start of 2017 has been good for discussion of access to public records in Georgia. I will say that it’s been interesting.
