Alright, everybody else has commented, so...

So the confessed killer of JonBenet Ramsey is just another twitchy pedophile wanting his fifteen minutes after all. It's not like we all didn't see it coming, the networks said from the beginning that the details of his "confession" didn't jibe with the proverbial "details never released to the press".

One possible good that came out of all of this was that the media got to focus on how badly they and the authorities had treated John and Patsy Ramsey. Cold comfort to Patsy, who died not long ago - but at least she died with the illusion that there was going to be some kind of resolution. If she'd hung on a little longer she'd have died with bitter disappointment rather than hope.

Now having said that, does anybody out there think that there was NO connection between the creepy beauty pagent lifestyle that little girl was injected into and her murder?

Yeah, yeah she really liked it. So what? Kids like a lot of things which parents shouldn't let them do.

When the murder was new, I was single and had no kids. Now I have two, an active boy and a beautiful six-week-old daughter. When I figure out how to, I'll probably post some pictures (see previous post). But gentle readers, after she's a no-doubt lovely little girl and recognizable from pictures, none are ever going to be posted on the Internet if I have anything to say about it.
