« The Top Ten Reasons Why I Hate Ted Nugent | Main | The Oakland County Child Killings »



Re: sick sadistic serial killer types in Michigan, do you happen to know anything about the Oakland County Child Killings in the 1970's?


Talk about timing - Mark's sister just said a few days ago that she was going to send me that book! I know I've told you before, but one of the women Donald Miller killed was Mark's 8th grade teacher, I think the year after Mark was in her class. He also knows someone who married Donald Miller's brother. Small world and all that.

ps: Sorry I haven't emailed lately - my beautiful baby boy is being very high maintenance lately, even moreso than usual, he never wants me to put him down. Even so, he's still fantastic.


Piece of advice Darr... When Mia went through that phase I slung her to my chest in the "snugge" (chest pack) and kept her there as long as she wanted. It's a great way to bond and keep you hands free for typing, or whatever! :D Just you wait until he has his own opinion about everything, has learned the word "no" and can climb out of everything you put him in (crib, carseat, highchair, etc)... That's when the fun really begins! :))

    A collection of lyrical short stories from Annie Proulx that contains Brokeback Mountain among other gems. (****)
  • John Grisham: The Innocent Man
    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)

    Fascinating look at women journalists at the front during WWII. (****)
  • Jack Olsen: Charmer
    Riveting true crime by a master. (****)

    Excellent telling of the Bart Corbin cases. (****)
  • Michael Crichton: Airframe
