Another lying murderer 'fesses up  
This story broke last night in local news when Hans Reiser, staring a sentence of 25-to-life in the face, agreed to take authorities to the site where he'd buried his wife Nina in order to set the stage for a late, post conviction plea bargain to second degree murder (15-life). His defense team had maintained that Nina might be in Europe. The burial site turned out to be less than a mile from his mother's house in steep terrain and likely would not have been found without his help. The murder is thought to have taken place after she came to drop off the kids for a visit and while the kids were in the basement. The area where the body had been buried was searched previously with cadaver dogs but the actual site was difficult to access.

Now, if they can just find the body of Drew Peterson's wife Stacey.

These women are dead but clearly misogyny is alive and well.

Alas, I don't think we will be holding a wake for Misogyny anytime soon. I already ranted today, I must NOT start here about how women get murdered for just being wives and mothers and guys get 3 to 5 years in jail; but a woman who murders an abusive man often goes to jail for 15-25 years. Why can't all of us be seen apart from gender?

It is the remnant of the patriarchal system--can't have women murdering men and just getting away with it! The whole system would break down!

It makes me sick too. Most often the guys murder to avoid the divorce settlement (ie money) and women murder to escape their abuser.
