Today I was reading a story on Yahoo!News about this very convoluted plot to rob a bank by locking a bomb around a man’s neck. Turns out it was the work of Marjorie Diehl-Armstrong, a woman with a history of mental illness and a strong hatred of men. What we’re concerned with today in this post is the number of men who are listed in this story as “former boyfriends.” Seriously? Who are these people? She actually killed one in the 80’s and claimed it was self-defense. Currently, she’s on trial for the murder of two more, and was helped by a couple of others, one of whom is now deceased. The motive for robbing the bank? She wanted to pay someone to kill her father. She also has a strong hatred for Geraldo Rivera, which seems about the only sane thing about her.
This is not one of those “Why don’t I have a boyfriend?” whiny posts, because that isn’t the issue. The issue is not that I don’t have a boyfriend, but that this woman does. Not just A boyfriend, but several. Obviously, there is an issue of the type and quality of men she is dating and I would venture to guess that our tastes are somewhat divergent. It just boggles the mind that she hates the men and can’t keep them away from her. She even has a history of MURDERING her boyfriends, and still – always a date on Saturday night. Wow.
