See, giving people like that airtime is kind of like opening Pandora's Box, if Pandora's Box were filled with stupid.

I like how you stated that... im surprised at how much negativity (is that a word?) gets put towards the survivors...

I was watching the daily show last night its my favorite show but they were making jokes about the settlement from the catholic church, even though they were trying to make a point about how the church was wrong i think some things should be above making jokes about.... if we heard john stewart make a joke about some one being murdered or even some one being robed at gun point people would be very upset.... why is sexual abuse somthing people feel is ok to make jokes about?

I think people like this woman are in the minority. Heaven help us if they're not!
