No physical evidence, only a weak confession of sorts which studies have shown again and again are almost unreliable, and this confession wasn't even accurate in the first place. DNA tied the guy convicted to the case and his statements to friends after the murder he said Amanda wasn't there. Ridiculously sloppy police work, and a nutty prosecutor. The innocence project wrote a piece on it. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] This is boring and too detailed, but… can even one of you tell me if I'm being too picky or lame-- at disneyland with extended family. My daughter doesn't like scary rides-- she is 8. My husband was walking into a ride ahead with the rest of his family and our daughter and I were lagging behind because she was a little weepy and worried about going on the ride. I was fine either way, and when we asked the ticket-taker if it was scary, she said it was a little scary with some darkness and some going backwards and suddenly my daughter said, okay I'm not going. So we waited for the rest. When they came off, my nephew (5) said, you talked her out of it and convinced her not to go on the ride. And I said, oh no, she just didn't want to. And my nephew pointed at my husband and said, he said you convinced her not to go. Is this just literally nothing. The context is that he blames me for a lot of things that I feel are unfair and blames me for "isolating" our daughter. So I have this on my mind… 25 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I would let it slide. Even the kindest, most evolved men can have a weak spot when it comes to their DDs being afraid and weepy about nonessential things. I always wrote it off to their own fear of being teased about acting like a girl when a kid themselves. It's irrational, but I've seen it a number of times! So in a way he was saving face (for DD and in a way himself) by blaming it on you. Just a possibility. ,I'm not sure any good will come of you bringing it up because I don't think he's going to have an answer that will help you. Just let it slide and enjoy your vacation.

Yes and no, like anyone. I can see how profoundly unfair this sounds, but proving to him that it is and you were right seems not worth the aggravation and potential can of worms right now on vacation. If its still bugging you after you get back, sure, scratch the itch and bring it up when everyone has calmed down and the stakes are lower. But don't spoil time on your vacation over a silly, nonproductive disagreement. Go spin on some tea cups and fly on Dumbo with DD! The fun is what she will remember. [ Reply | More ]

A lot of companies make salmon-colored concealer. After MUM's post I realized I had some in a kit. I tried it.
