Okay, I’m commenting on the John Mark Karr hullabaloo for two reasons. #1 the media coverage here in Los Angeles. #2 the connection I have to JonBenet.
Let’s start at the beginning.
Patsy Ramsey was Miss West Virginia in 1977. She was born in Parkersburg West Virginia and graduated from Parkersburg high school . She then attended nearby West Virginia University. Parkersburg West Virginia is a mere 14 miles from my own hometown of Marietta Ohio. In fact, Parkersburg was host to many of the malls and coffee shops where I spent a majority of my free time in high school. Our football team played PHS every year; the year that I was in the marching band I marched on the PHS astro-turf. John and Patsy attended Patsy’s 25th high school reunion in 2000. The event attracted national press attention due to the public’s still lingering suspicions about the death of their daughter.
Speaking of which
Jonbenet’s supposed killer has been getting on my nerves. Apparently the story is so important that here in Los Angeles regular television programming had to be put on hold on several channels so we could see a live feed from LAX of his plane arriving from Thailand. In the air. Taxiing to the terminal. Connecting with the terminal. Debarking, although we couldn’t see anything since we were looking at the OUTSIDE of the airport. At least in the OJ chase we could see his silhouette inside the truck. …and we didn’t know what would happen next….
All this attention and many think the guy (while a professed danger to children who should be in prison anyway) is simply a patsy (pun intended). SO STOP REPORTING ABOUT IT EVERY FIVE MINUTES! Does the rest of the country have to endure this nonsense? I’m just curious….
