BILLINGS, MT – There’s a couple of alternate endings for the show Breaking Bad, the story about Walter White, a teacher turned meth maker after he learns he has cancer.

Both of them involve the cheap literary cop-out, known as the dream.

A real-life Walter White may be hoping for his alternate ending.

The Montana hombre is spending the next nine years in prison after getting busted and sentenced for selling meth to oil field workers in Nebraska.  He might have gotten away with it, except that his son shot him during an apparent argument over a drug debt.

He told the judge he was sorry, saying that meth dealing wasn’t in his character.

Guess he should have spent less time selling meth, otherwise he’d know that even a TV character takes a bullet now and then.
