It's just the cost of doing business. So is your liver. Sarah's story about Kyle "constantly" dousing down exploding meth labs has me wondering how many methlabs there are in Smallville? Is it a drug town, where the local government is complicit in return for a kick back? Is that how they pay for those fire engines. Meth lab protection? Silly Morgan, trying to buy out the town. Those meth dealers are using your reverse mortgages to launder their money. Or is the head of Intergang aware, and taking a cut?
