A friend of mine (a developer who will remain nameless) said that the Grand Theft Auto V announcement was oddly timed. I didn't understand what he meant at first until our readers and Twitter began mentioning that today's date coincides with the official start date of former Florida attorney Jack Thompson's disbarment date. On September 25, 2008, the Florida Supreme Court’s disbarment order for Thompson was signed. It went into effect 30 days later, on October 25, 2008.
Rockstar will show off the first trailer for the game on November 2. Thanks to Andrew Eisen and everyone else in the Shout Box and on Twitter who connected the dots.
I don't want to make Thompson come out of hiding to send me a painfully long email filled with insults, so I’ll simply wish him the best in whatever it is he does these days to keep himself occupied. Best of luck in all your endeavors, Jack.
