The Federal government and Richmond reacted quickly when former Vice President Freemon appeared in Lexington, Virginia. They dispatched a far larger law enforcement and military force to deal with the man once and for all. The orders technically stated that they wanted him dead or alive, but were weighted in such a way that anyone with more brain power than the average network mouthpiece knew that this time they wanted him dead and only dead. This was too much for the soldiers of Fort Lee, who quickly announced their intention to stop any attempt to kill the former Vice President. It should be noted that Fort Lee had been renamed in previous decades in honor of a more politically correct individual than the former Virginia general. That made using the name Fort Lee another very interesting message, one that anyone smarter than the average network mouthpiece also noticed.
