  • Dateline NBC did a story recently on a murderer who had been convicted of hiring hitmen to kill his wife of 20 years.  
    As I was flipping channels, I became intrigued by this story. From the outside, this man looked like a “good man.”  He went to church on Sunday, had a high level executive job, had two beautiful children, and a faithful wife.  The family appeared to have acquired the American Dream.

  • Forty years ago, a very young man I barely knew got into his 1973 white and orange Ford Comet and said he was going to the store to buy film for his camera.
    I said to this very young man I barely knew, “You’re coming back, aren’t you?”
    Later that morning, this very young man I barely knew and I, also very young, had plans to get married.
    We were both stationed at Loring Air Force Base in Limestone, Maine, two miles from the Canadian border, and there were patches of snow on the ground.
    It was May 3, 1975.
