    I occassionally have this sick obsession with true crime stories and serial killers.  Usually I start looking up this stuff when I have nothing to do.  When I looked at the JonBenet Ramsey case, I felt that the parents were not guilty of murdering her.  The evidence wasn't there.  I think that the Ramseys were convicted in the eyes of the public and the media.  Perhaps the media focuses too much on these stories and I definately feel that they don't cover these types of crimes committed against minorities as much as they do whites.  However, I don't think this is part of some conspiracy designed to help Bush and the Republicans.  And sometimes the media circus frenzies benefit Democrats.  For example, during his Special Election, Arnold had this big announcement/campaign kickoff that was supposed to help his initiatives.  However, the Michael Jackson verdict interupted it.
