    I always thought it was strange that Lizzie Borden was so infamous for TWO murders.  I guess it was just different back then.  We had an area guy kill 6 people or so (at different locations) a few months ago and I’ve already forgotten the details.

    @Prof: I think Lizzie’s lasting notority is tied to her gender, socio-economic class (a half-million dollar motive is pretty sizeable even today) and the crime itself. She sort of was the  one-woman Menendez Brothers of her day, if that makes any sense.

    Yes, back then a woman doing those things was incomprehensible.

    Not to mention it spawned a catchy nursery rhyme.

    Mickster is AWESOME!

    Aunt John, I love you Menendez post. Hilarious.

    I agree, the fact that she was a woman of some means makes her odd, even by today’s standards. And also, she was found innocent, yet, we all still question it…
