The End of the Beginning

Verstegen’s Good Week/Bad Week – 5.10.13

Good Week

It was a good week for four women who fell on hard times.

3 Cleveland Women: After 10 years in a rapist’s house, 3 women are free. This week is good, very good, but what about all the weeks and years to follow? How can anyone recover from such an ordeal?

Bangladesh seamstress: Here is a true testament to the human spirit. She lived for 17 days in a collapsed building on dried fruit and very little water. She was pulled from the building largely unharmed and in a beautiful dress and scarf no less.



Bad Week

San Antonio Spurs: The remarkable San Antonio NBA team has long dominated the sport, but they must now accept that championship experience cannot completely overcome age. The young and very talented Golden State Warrior team is quite literally running circles around them. After only 2 games, I predict a berth in the Western Conference finals for the Warriors against OKC.

Jodi Arias: Arias shot, stabbed (30 times) and slit the throat of her boyfriend. Then she toddled off to Utah for a rendezvous with another man. She was found guilty of 1st degree murder this week. She says that she prefers the death penalty to life in prison. It’s tempting to give her life.
