I’m watching Dateline NBC and the man who was tried and convicted for killing a young girl claims to have falsely confessed just so the police would stop their questioning. What gets my billy goat’s gruff isn’t why on Odin’s upside-down-tree would a person say he’d committed a crime he did not commit. Nope. What befuddles me is his response to Keith Morrison’s question here:
Surely there is more to being less than a choir boy than simply driving certain cars, listening to rock, drinking lots of alcohol alone and with other people. Not every teen who drives a “fast car,” listens to rock, drinks a lot of alcohol alone or with other people is less than a choir boy. I’m going to take a semantically OCD moment here to point out that Beach didn’t say that he drives cars fast. A person can drive a fast car but drive it slowly.
To be less than a choir boy, at least throw in some cruelty to animals, willful property damage, up-skirt photography, and going to the bathroom and not washing your hands afterwards–knowing that the people in the other stalls can hear your non-soaping.
And now for some less random news. Nine Muses wants you to eat potato chips.
