Once again, Cranston proves what a low life, basement dwelling, knuckle dragging, fry dropping, mouth breathing, momma's boy waste of oxygen he his. Who cares about the family situation? A young child died tragically. Who cares that the family comes and goes all hours if the night. Or that they are on public assistance. A life was lost too soon and that's all that should matter. On another note, Cranston. I find it hard to believe you have a friend. Are you sure it wasn't your mommy screaming down to the basement about that family?
