21st Century Lesbian Trailer Trash

These are the mad musings of a middle aged woman, dyke, nurse, poet. I have a dog, a cat, a mobile home, and delusions of grandeur.

Still swimming up from the depths of interrupted sleep, I am drinking Starbucks Komodo Dragon this morning. It's bold and flavorful; just the sort of coffee that might jump start my tired body.

The JonBenet Ramsey thing has everyone in a frenzy recently. I just don't know what to think. Not that I ever felt the need to blame her parents. I have simply never known quite what to think.

JonBenet is a kind of fairy tale for our times. A cautionary story about riches and beauty and the drive to succeed. We love to watch the train wreck of another person's life. Somehow, it makes us right. It makes us better. It proves that God will punish the wicked and reward the righteous.

For most, it doesn't matter who murdered the tiny beauty queen. In fact, we don't really want to know. Because in knowing the truth, we may find ourselves humbled. We may be forced to drop to our knees and beg forgiveness of a family we do not even know.

Or worse, we may be faced with the awful knowledge that we can be devastated by those whom we trust the most.

Looks like I might owe Patsy's soul a big apology. I've really always thought she had a hand in it.

It doesn't matter what I think about this case. What you wrote is beautifully written and pretty close to the truth.

Well-said, girlie. And Komodo Dragon is an awesome blend. I like my girls strong and my coffee stronger.

It's unsettling to visit your blog since our templates are the same; I find myself thinking I've clicked the wrong link. No, no, no, I know what I said. I want to read— Oh, look, it's nursepam after all.

I'm not sure I believe him, his wife said he wasn't in Bolder. Maybe he's like those sick types that tries to take "credit" to look big in other sickos' eyes.

God the WHOLE thing was so horrible, including those damn bazaar baby beauty pageants.
I hope they DO find the killer.

Truthfully Syd, we don't know the whole story. The DA is being very cagey (& rightfully so at this point) about evidence.

The world is full of horrible stories like this JM. We all have our own thoughts on them. What interests me is how we so often end up back in the modern version of the Salem Witch Trials.

Isn't it a shame that we both have such good taste Scout?

I like my women strong and my coffee stronger.

I love it!

His ex could be covering for him KMae. Or, as you say, he could be crazy enough to confess to a crime he did not commit.

Baby beauty pageants freak me out. But I'm not convinced that that was the reason JonBenet was killed.

No I don't think it's the reason. I just can't believe women do that to their girls. Jesus!
