Comment of the Day: The Cellmate of "Blue-Eyed Butcher" Susan Wright Weighs In
We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.
So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.
This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.
Lifetime did a movie called Blue-Eyed Butcher about Susan Wright, who tied her husband to their bed and stabbed him 193 times.
We had one of her attorneys review it, and adding her two cents in the comments was her former cellmate, who testified at the trial.
