    The spelling should be "arsehole."

    Ipe-pay own-day on the aud-fray, people. I'm negotiating with Museum of the Bible to sell them baby Jesus' foreskin. (Actually the neckflap from last year's Tgiving turkey, sent through the dryer for a few permanent press cycles, but suitable for veneration by faith.)

    People love their woo.
    Now made into the Netflix mini-series "Murder among the Mormons." My sister tells me to watch it, but I can't find it on-line. I'd already heard the story. I think I read it (perhaps in Atlantic), but will look for the "Forensic File" you mention.

    Been there. Done that.
