This Week in the Universe...

I'm not sure what to think of the universe this week. Everything seemed so tragic. And I'm not just referring to Paris' release from jail...

Jessie Davis' body was found. Her baby daddy/probable killer/freaking COP is being held and questioned and a trial is being set up. Oh and to bail him out you better hope someone has $5,000,000. Yes, 5 million. (Quick note, if your bail is that're guilty.)

But really, I'd like to delve into this Chris Benoit situation. For those who are unfamiliar, Chris Benoit was a wrestler for the WWE. He was supposed to do a show in NC this past weekend, and when he didn't show, authorities were sent to his house where they found Benoit, his wife Nancy, and son Daniel, dead.

This is an extremely sad situation. They canceled Monday's RAW event to hold a special tribute for Benoit and his family. Then on Tuesday a press conference was held where they released the nature of the deaths and that Benoit is now to blame. The police have labeled it a double murder/suicide. I don't want to get into how they were found but if you're curious you can read about it here.

Just like my Jessie Davis post I don't want to get into 'what ifs'. Instead I want to wait to hear the solid facts instead of making assumptions the way some people are. All I know is that this is a very sad occurrence and Benoit's extended family and his other son (who was not in the house) should be kept in your prayers.

I promise that the next installment of This Week in the Universe will be happier. I wish that they all could be, but sometimes, Shit Happens.

Seriously, WTF is wrong with people today? We are on the same lines with Jessie Davis, although personally, I hope that shithead gets assraped every day for the rest of his life.

I am so sunshine and lollipops today.

Haha. I thought the previous comment was amusing. I second it.
