Bring Out Your Dead!

canada_bus.jpgA couple of years ago a guy in Canada made the international news when he killed a fellow bus passenger for seemingly no reason at all.  Even that probably wouldn’t have been enough except that he proceeded to cut the dead man’s head off and hold it up for everyone else to see.

Thankfully, this type of crazy remains relatively rare.  Sure, we get the occasional nut job like Jose Offerman but he’s the exception rather than rule.  And, to be fair, he didn’t cut anyone’s head off either.

Here in the US we also get our fair share of far-out nuts.  These stories run the gamut from the tragic (Timothy McVeigh and the Columbine Killers) to the macabre (Jeffery Dahmer and John Wayne Gacy).  However, every once in a while a story hits the wires that just can’t be categorized.  For instance, Richard Elwood Sanden.

Honestly, I’m not even really sure where to start on this one.  And I’m not even really sure why I’m bringing it up except to spread the horror a little wider in hopes that my own will dissipate.  I mean seriously, who uses telephone dating services?  That’s why the internet was created. 

….Oh, you’re horrified for other reasons?  Oh, yeah, ok.  I guess I can see where you’re coming from.  That part is pretty bad, too.  But seriously, I didn’t even know that telephone dating services still existed or that anyone used them.

Jeff,
Some days you wonder where this crazy kool-ade is located so you can go push over the pot. We recently had a woman take the lives of her two teenage kids becuase they were “mouthy”. What hurts worse is that she listed her profession as a “sports professional”.
Sometimes even the most mundane person can become enraged in traffic or at the weirdest moment with no prior recourse or actions.
It makes talking in political correctness almost a necessity now instead of the norm.
Got to hit Miss Manner online for a refresher course to starve off the maddness.
