The Last Safe Place is safe no more. All the “noble” adults let the Baudelaire orphans down. Ends with the Baudelaires sailing away with Count Olaf. I have to say, Sunny’s words are not just gibberish. I almost want to go back and read them again to see if I can pick up more stuff. In this one, the author lets their political leanings show. The word was “scalia” and it was interpreted as “it seems nonsense to interpret it literally”. Justice Scalia is one of the few who still believe in Original Intent in regards to the U.S. Constitution. Whatever…
