Leslie Adler: How well do you really know your man?


Megan McAllister, fiancé of the alleged Craigslist Killer, said, "What has been portrayed and leaked to the media is not the Philip Markoff that I know."

And I want to ask her ... "and your point is ...?"

What are you saying, Megan? That he never tried to tie you up and steal your money? Never beat you up in a Boston hotel? Or are you proclaiming his innocence? Are you so sure there isn't another Philip Markoff inside the mind and body of the fit and preppy blonde boy you planned to wed in August?

Is it possible you could love someone and sleep next to them and not know that they have a darker side? How would Ruth Madoff answer that question? Was she an aider and abettor of a man she knew had a level of evil that would ultimately take down financial markets and institutions and ruin lives, or the loving wife of a guy she thought had the Midas touch?

What about the Parentes (the Long Island man who killed his wife and daughters and then himself)? Did Betty Parente or either of her children have any reason to believe they would die violent deaths at the hand of the man portrayed as a loving husband?

Do I have you thinking about sleeping with one eye open yet?

I'm just sayin' ...

Enough about the psyche of the psychopath. Talk to me, a wife, a lawyer ... about what would motivate my psyche to ignore the signs? I'd like to think I wouldn't, but....

Can any of us swear for anyone but ourselves? Does love lead us to knowing someone better than all others, or is love truly blind? Or, is it something in the middle? Do we turn a blind eye and see what we want to see?

The evidence against the Craigslist killer, for example, seems overwhelming. When the press tells us about the gun in the Gray's Anatomy book, the hard drive of his computer, the bag ties he used to tie the ladies' wrists, the extra cash he suddenly had with which to take Megan away ... the underwear he collected from the victims ... we women want to ask, "You're a woman, Megan -- you never looked in his drawers when he left the room or read his e-mails?" More importantly, if you had, would it ever have occurred to you that he could be capable of such sinister acts?

Will you be looking at your man through a different lens as a result of these stories?

I consider, that you commit an error. I can defend the position

Excuse me. You cannot make a man by standing a sheep on its hind legs. But by standing a flock of sheep in that position you can make a crowd of men.
I am from Finland and learning to write in English, give true I wrote the following sentence: “Bmo prepaid mastercard, in potentially all 1980s, if there is no career, the grace is simple to be an magnetic financial-services passbook or worse.”

:p Thanks in advance. Giva.

Aloe Vera Distributor October 10, 2009, 6:10 PM

Hello .
I have something to say, about Aloe Vera, something about which you wrote above, about health and weight management… For a long time, I and my friend use the products of the FLP. We always see the good results and also we make money for our families and we are happy. My friend works with Aloe in the company of flp has more than 5 years (My friend works ONLY in the forever living products company and has a wife and three children). I know Aloe Vera products for beauty for a long time, but a year ago, began working as a distributor in the forever living products.
Of course, the job is some difficult, but in no other case, you can earn so much money with so much fun and smiling faces around..
So if you want to discuss something about which you wrote above, and about my experience with AloeVera products for weight management, I’ll always be glad to talk.

Best regards from Washington and have a nice day!
Andrew - Aloe Vera Distributor
