Yes, he did indeed DM her, unless it’s a coincidence that she referred to him as “cape and tights” just like he referred to himself as putting on the “cape and tights” in a chat with the Blackjack Dealer.
Sure, that could be a coincidence. If you still believe in “coincidence” in this matter, and if you still do, there’s really no hope left for you.
And yes… she sure seems to indicate that there was something a little sweetness going on behind the scenes.
You don’t have to think something criminal happened here to say that a 46 year old man should not be seeking this type of “frivolity” and romantic validation from a starstruck 17 year old girl.

By the way: I know there are some of you who don’t particularly care for this story. In the afternoon, Aaron will hit some other topics. For a small blog whose proprietor has very limited time, being on top of a breaking news story and providing new evidence is already a huge demand. In the end, this is not a “parrot the news story of the day” blog, but rather a blog that tries to tell you things you aren’t seeing elsewhere. That sometimes means a narrow focus.
The solution, if you’re frustrated: support me with an income that allows me to pay my mortgage and quit my day job to blog about the things you want to see. Absent that . . . you’ll have to settle for the free ice cream we choose. It may be your flavor and it may not, but you can’t get that flavor anywhere else.
