She was finally seeing the truth.
Your mailman is a pedo.

I don't think she was. I think everyone else was.

Usually, that's a clue that we're dealing with an unreliable narrator, but not here.

Someone made the following comments:

>Maas, the surname, is derived from Thomas. The Biblical Thomas did what again?
>Maas is also the name of a river. A river that traces the boundary of the Holy Roman Empire. Gee whiz, Mr Misprint had an empire... Mz Maas ends up doing wha?

Which, if you tie this together and your head doesn't explode, should make a lot more sense.
