commented on The Thing I Can't Stop Thinking About in Making a Murderer
We watched the entire 12 hours in (almost) 12 straight hours on Christmas Eve. I'm not a TV binge watcher but this series was totally addictive. Steven may or may not have done it, but the evidence wasn't there to convict him (where's the freaking blood?!?). Brendan is definitely innocent and completely coerced. But I nearly fell out of my chair when, after repeating "I don't know" for 10 minutes, Brendan suddenly answers that he got the idea from a book: "I believe it was called 'Kiss the Girls."
Like I said, I think Brendan is innocent, but I find it surprising that he's a ... reader. Does anyone believe this poor kid reads books? Did his lawyer coach him to say that? A family member? Why didn't the prosecutor have someone pull up a copy on a laptop and have Brendan, with his extremely limited vocabulary, read aloud to see if he's capable? It was such a potential OJ/glove moment, but in reverse.

yep these are from Pipsqueak and they hang all over Squire Park, especially around Washington Hall and the Juvenile Detention Center. Really great stuff.

Commercial tampons ARE really bad for you, filled with bleach and other synthetics. Central Coop has natural cotton tampons for those (like me) who cannot do the cup thing.

@27 "Most people had no idea" Pu-leeze. This is a presumably educated grown woman who worked in Bellevue real estate for 10 years. She knew full well that her new neighborhood would grow—she just doesn't like how it's growing!
What I don't understand is why she thinks she has to buy a second car? Shouldn't they be downsizing?

YES! Everything Dan said. Your fiancee is your family now. Focus your energy on making your current family happy. Don't bend over backwards to make your previous family happy. If they don't love you for who you are it is not love.
You sound like an open-hearted, wonderful and kind person. I'm so sorry your shitty family doesn't accept you for the beautiful spirit that you are. I'm glad you found your love and yourself in Seattle.
