Is Fantomas on the Grassy Knoll?

"Hay mucha gente mala que al saber que hay distinguidos comensales en cierto restaurante de Miami pudieran hacer de las suyas... Si fuera yo cogería una mesa bien lejos de las ventanas

por si acaso..."

"There are many bad people out there who on learning that distinguished guests are lunching at a certain Miami restaurant might try to pull off one of their stunts... If it were me I would choose a table that was very far removed from the windows...

Just in case..."

There are many ways to interpret this comment, or warning. It could be interpreted as a friend's solicitude. It could also be regarded as a threat, whether coming from friend or foe. The only thing that we can be sure of is that fantomas was contemplating yesterday the possibility of Val's death today. That in itself is a bit unsettling. We want our friends to love us, or at least like us (alive). Fantomas, who was obviously fascinated with the ending of the Sopranos, is predicting a similar fate for Val. I hope that Val didn't set off for that restaurant without at least tapping on wood. A few candles wouldn't hurt either. Or a bottle of Florida Water. The best precaution would be to stay home. Adulation is not worth immolation.

I would have thought ill of myself if I had failed to warn Val of the impending danger when Castro supposedly warned Reagan.
