Fact is Stranger than Fiction

When I begin to have doubts about how I handle a crisis or a difficult decision I've made, I read about someone bungling a similar situation in a major way. I mean really bad. And then I have some mixed up feelings. First, I feel bad for victims, then, I feel a little happy (alot happy, really)that I didn't - or even think of in my wildest imagination - do that...

That's why I get a warm fuzzy feeling when I watch shows like COPS and other reality TV; there are people out there dumber than me.

Read why duct tape, a length of rope, a knife, scissors, a .22 caliber rifle with a loaded magazine was found in this angry dad's pessession:

Nicholas Kampf, 54, and his wife, Lola, 53, were arrested on Friday in a New Hampshire parking lot after their daughter Katelyn escaped by persuading her parents to untie her so she could use a Kmart bathroom.

I would adopt her baby in a heartbeat!

That is so insane. Now, not only have they alinated their daughter and their grandchild, they are now in jail! Yea, that was way better then having a baby!

My hat's off to the daughter. She's in a tough situation, but at least she didn't want to kill her baby.
