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.
