Yes, it's true.
Not a stretch of the imagination to assume that the idea of the hearing - specifically the idea of having to face Rocket's true owner in court, along with God-only knows how many reunion volunteers*, newspaper reporters, TV cameras and assorted Rocket-supporters from the area - Lynne Welsh decided - after stalling for five months - to return Rocket today.
He is back HOME in New Orleans now.
Many more details (specifically the chronology of this nasty, pathetic and manipulative saga) will soon be posted.
* at least 11 of us were planning to be at the hearing tomorrow which has been cancelled.
