Romance novelist unclear on the concept

See, Nancy Brophy, you're a novel writer. That's fiction, as in, made up. Ted Kaczynski, mmmkay, now that guy wrote a manifesto. That is non-fiction, as in, NOT made up. If you are going to write a manifesto, you've got to be careful exactly what you write it about. Or, you wait until a few years after the fact, and write a novel based on the tragic murder of your husband... hell, maybe don't even do that. You've got that insurance money - you could rest on your laurels and write sit-coms.

These very specific hilarious pieces of stupidity that can be found on tabloid sites are not Peak Stupidity's kind of thing, but I like the sound of this one. If you want, you can read this nearly up-to-date account of the murder trial going on, the charges being against this Nancy Brophy of Portland, Oregon. I don't really care that much. I should be able to get the book from the library, it being out since well before the '18 murder. (OK, it's an essay, but maybe I can find it on-line.)

From the quick video I saw in a tweet, Dan and Nancy Brophy had at one point a "storybook marriage". Yeah, well, that's still true though, when you think about it.

I just don't see why the trial has been taking so long already. I would think that Multnomah County Prosecutor George Patton will get his guilty verdict once he issues his quick closing statement:

Brophy, you magnificent bitch, I read your book!!

Yes, I'm a big fan of Patton and we have featured this same clip already twice, here and here, and should have also here.

Right up there with ...

“Mr. Chambers, don't get on that ship! The rest of the book, To Serve Man, it's... it's a cookbook!"

PS: I guess I can check the epilogue of her essay for the answer there, A-G. ;-}

PS Case seems circumstantial. She could walk.
