But I am slowly getting back at it. Yes, very slowly, but, hey, it’s better than nothing, right? I warned you that you never know what I might write about, and I am going to drive that home over the next few blog posts. I have been moved, and I am going to write about it, and you can blame Netflix and Chill, and a horrid summer cold/cough that gave me time to binge watch. So if you haven’t watched THE KEEPERS yet, go and watch it now. No really, now. It’s ok, I’ll wait.
Anyone that is familiar with me on any sort of personal level will know that I couldn’t watch that and not say anything. I don’t want to make my first note about this full of spoilers, but the injustice portrayed in this series boggles the mind. Aaaand the Mucinex is wearing off…..
So suffice it to say, I have already submitted Freedom of Information Act requests, assured the government that I don’t stand to make any money off of this, (with my wopping, what…10? readers??) And Now I am digging into some online research. Again, if you know me, you know that’s something I do fairly well. Because of the series, the internet fairly vomits up information gone over in the show. I am looking for more than just that, though. Call me a tick, but I am going to burrow in on this one. I’m not trying to solve this case. There are those much better equipped than I to do that. I just want to understand, because right now understanding is hard to come by. A fresh eye never hurts though, and the more information we have about these atrocities, the more likely we are to prevent them in the future. And who knows, maybe some armchair sleuth will solve the cases I will be writing about. Anything is possible.
If you are still reading, that means you aren’t watching yet. Fair enough. but you’ll need to watch to understand future posts, which will include;
- Who was Brother Bob?
- Who was Skippy?
- Is the necklace actually related?
- Is Joyce Malecki’s murder related? How?
- Is Gerry Koob believable?
- How high up did the pedophile ring actually go?
- Is Sharon May believable?
Trust me when I say this is the tip of a very, very large iceberg. I hope this opens a discussion, and brings awareness, and maybe even a little bit of healing. Go watch the show. Then report back for serious discussion about the issues raised. It’s a bee in my knickers, y’all, and it isn’t going away, so you may as well enjoy the ride.
