As to sociopaths & serial killers, I find those shows so comical, the only person who can know the mind of a sociopath is a sociopath. I can tell you most of the qualities people associate with the term "sociopath" are wrong. Also theres a lot of serial killers who aren't sociopaths and even more sociopaths who aren't serial killers. Sorry didn't mean to get lost on that, just an obsession of mine.


I'm really starting to see the humor in this story...I was so shocked when I first read it, but I have a tendency to take things too seriously. As for sociopaths, imasmf, have you read The Sociopath Next Door? The author's view is that there are an awful lot of them out there...25% of the population to various degrees. Really creepy to think about, but when you read it you find yourself thinking of people you know that have the qualities that are described in the book.

I did wonder what people thought when she was found?


LOL - i wondered that, too! i can see them rushing over, seeing that she'd obviously fallen from a great height, and immediately looking up at.....absolutely NOTHING up there!

DJ, i DID gasp because it was unexpected for me, but then i thought "brilliant!"

I also wondered about what would people think when they found her. But, I don't think they would have looked to the sky for an answer. I think they would have thought she'd been kidnapped, badly beaten and dumped.

No, they wouldn't look skyward unless, of course, he gave her a little pair of airline wings to pin on and a bag of peanuts.

Too bad she couldn't have used her seat as a floatation device.

LOL, DJ.

but i disagree....i think (especially if it were a cop who maybe had seen jumpers splatted on the sidewalk before) they WOULD look up.

edited to say....at least that was the picture in my head when i read it.

Did anyone else think that Angie and Nick might have been having an affair? When Eric was watching through the window and Angie was talking on the phone and asking someone why they were studying on Saturday then she seemed to make something up with Eric questioned her about it.
