    This from a guy who earned a bachelor's degree  in child development and family relations, and who took a class called "Male Athletes Against Violence."

    It seems reasonable to suppose that something extraordinary unhinged him to an extreme degree for him to have forgotten all the knowledge in which he had been immersed for four years.  Then again, who knows.

    Frankly, my feelings about suicide are such that, with very few exceptions, I have absolutely no sympathy for the one who commits it.  And when it involves murder, there are no exceptions.

    That poor child.

      It's heart breaking.

      I keep thinking about this perfect tiny baby, how her world has been so utterly changed, and how she's going to cope when she's older with the fact that her father killed her mother and then himself, leaving her alone.
