LIONEL PODCAST: A Mélange

Move over Susan Boyle. Meet Saveta Jovanoviċ. Hirsute and hispidulous, what a talent. What does this have to do with anything? Nothing. And that’s my point. It’s a brain riff. Brain flatus. Welcome to the mélange.

LIONEL PODCAST: The Savage Murder And Dismemberment of Leiby Kletzky, An Innocent Child

On Wednesday a subhuman piece of walking slime made a full written confession to the cops detailing how he smothered a Brooklyn Orthodox Jewish boy, Leiby Kletzky, 8, with a towel and then dismembered him. It gets worse, if that’s even possible. Police found some of the boy’s dismembered remains including the child’s feet in Ziploc bags in the killer’s refrigerator; other body parts were deposited in dumpsters. And to think, we share DNA with this animal. Why? Please, someone tell me why.

I normally shy away from discussions about horrible stories like this because I have such a fear that I might be mistaken for the schmaltzy no shite commentaries from the paragons of the obvious who, miraculously, are against the murder and dismemberment of innocent children. And yet, despite the horrors of this event, there remain many fascinating questions that I explore herein. Never approximating schmaltzy, I assure you.
