from the WiP:

"She did not think of herself as a particularly violent person, but there was no denying that the act of stabbing something could lift even the most melancholic of moods."

In which Rosemary is embodying Big Mood.

via CNN: BREAKING: David Koch, billionaire businessman and influential GOP donor, has died.

May his memory be for a warning.
