You're terrifically appealing on TV Nancy but you've got a slight case of vocal fry. Funny, because that's usually a teenage thing.

I tend to speak very fast, sometimes to the point where listeners are making "agh! Slow it down!" gestures. Perhaps I overcorrected for the camera.

BTW I thought KOIN's videographer and editor (plus director if there was such a person) covered the story really well.

I don't understand how you can say or believe that "she loved her children." I think you are making something complicated that isn't so. You seem to suggest that those who would call her a "monster" somehow lack understanding, as if we have a problem because we don't know or are simplifying it. You know, a bullet to the head would've been so much more compassionate. The children died painfully. They felt terror beyond imagination. And from their own Mother who should have protected them. Did they scratch her & claw trying to get away or did they fearfully submit. You are right about my not understanding. I don't understand why some people don't understand that she is selfish & unfeeling. She said the killed the children to get back at her husband. I think she is a sociopath. There is no why. That is the answer. Evil exists. She is evil.
