It is a story that has all the ingredients of another John Grisham novel [set] in this Mississippi River town, sports scribe Mark Schlabach noted in a recent article on the continuing saga of Albert Means. Schlabach supported his claim by creating a brief outline of Means' story to date: A 20-year-old victim raised in poverty. An unscrupulous multimillionaire. A whistle-blower turned defendant. A famed Watergate prosecutor and the FBI. And you have to admit, on the front end Means' story sounds exactly like a Grisham novel. Conspiracy buffs, however, who have long suspected that Means is the product of genetic experiments using fragments of brontosaurus DNA preserved in amber, know that this is all more of a Michael Crichton sort of thing.
