    No it's not warped. As myrosiedog posted, about wanting to know what makes others tick. I watch those shows. However when the Dahmer thing was unfolding in Milwaukee, I for some reason didn't really want to hear about it. Because I live here? I don't know.

    Don't you think that it's just as much the fact that you weren't alone? I always had my own room because I was the only girl, and when I was little everything was always so much more frightening because I was in the room alone, especially if there wasn't a night light. Closets were the worst. I had 2 of them in my room and one was a long, dark one that ran the whole length of the room. My parents stored things in there that they never needed to get to, like my dad's WWII Army uniforms, so we never went in there. I just knew there was a boogey man or something lurking in there. I also always felt like I would be safer if I slept with my back to the wall - never, ever with my back facing the door.

    I've read things like this because I had a need to know that these people were actually out there, and that they usually look like everybody else walking down the street, sitting in church, etc. Welcome to the real world.

    I could see where that would be unnerving.

    Ted Bundy has always been my favorite (is that really a word I should be using here? ). Part of the fascination was because Ted looked so normal and was a fairly attractive man.

    I read and watch stuff about Charles Manson but to be honest-that man scares the living bejesus out of me...I truly and honestly believe he is the devil incarnate.

    bbnbama did you see that program last night about Manson? They were going over an interview from '86 that he had done. Most parts were never shown back then, as they were considered too inflammatory. But they showed most of it last night, with comments from an FBI? expert. Really interesting.

    I remember when the Jeffrey Dahmer story broke, and hearing on the radio a tape of the police joking about the boy that escaped Dahmer...and then returned him, laughing about the "lovers quarrel" That just chilled me to the bone.

    Ann Rule had a couple of good books about Bundy. But as a true crime writer, I think she has gone downhill.
    I very much believe in rescuing animals, not buying them.

    I'm sure that's it. Not wanting to be alone, but then choosing the one person in the house that an earthquake folllowed by a hurricane and tsunami wouldn't have woken up to protect me.

    My daughter was so bad about her closets as a small child, she insisted we remove the doors. her room was closet doorless for years.

    Bundy was a fascinating individual and that book by Rule was really good. He was so normal. But that seems to be their advantage. They appear normal because if they all looked and acted like Manson, they'd not get any victims. It's almost like 2 personalities.

    The other book by Ann Rule that was fascinaing was called Every Breath you take and it was about the murder of the mom of the quads in Sarasota. I lived near there and remember all that happened about it. So sad. But the book is so good as the ex-husband was one strange dude, but it still took them a while to get to him. And to get the actual hired killer back from Mexico. I think the ex-husband was named Blackthorn or something. The killer was Del Toro. I remember that as it was a nightly topic while they tried to extradite him.

    I am fascinated by Ted Bundy and the like as well. I like to watch the shows on Discovery Times and Biography about people like them. I watched one last night about the BTK killer. It was interesting to see how they get caught.

    My daughter watched that and was just telling me about it. She always seems so amazed at how stupid criminals are. I keep telling her if they were smarter, they wouldn't be criminals.

    It was a very stupid mistake that got him caught. I guess it is a good thing criminals can be stupid like that.

    "Ted looked so normal" "He was so normal."

    OK, define "normal". Personally, I don't think there is a "normal".
