Last Ditch Effort

Tomorrow will mark two weeks since I made the following post in the comment thread of Michelle Young Murder:  Rage or Planned?

There are some questions I would like to ask before I publish your comment. I can set up a private blog entry here that is password protected. You and I can discuss this matter on the comment section of that entry. All I need from you is for you to give me a password and agree not to share that password with anyone else. I will set up the private entry with the password you provide, and I will agree to not share the password with anyone else. When we are done with the discussion, I will delete the entry and the discussion if you so choose. 

If I’ve heard no response from you by 5 p.m. tomorrow, I’ll accept your silence as a rejection of my offer and publish your comment per your previous instruction.  I hope that one way or another you’ll participate in the discussion the subject of your comment is sure to touch off.

Update:  September 28, 2007

Beguilement for Hire

Who paid the Quack?  Do you feel like you got your money’s worth?  Think again.  You’ve been hornswoggled.  The Quack has exploited your family’s tragedy.  And for what?  To prolong the agonizing wait for resolution.  To delay the inevitable.  To make a buck and a name for himself by providing a false sense of comfort to one family while revictimizing the other.  That comfort will not last.  The Quack’s convoluted machinations of dubious information are being sorted out.  His endeavor will not change the outcome.  One family will eventually be faced again with the truth.  The second impact of that truth will be more painful than the initial because it will be compounded by the shame and outrage of realizing that they were misled and that they paid the Quack to mislead them.  The other family will endure the continued assault and persevere because their eyes are set on the horizon and the justice that approaches, slowly but surely. 

Home Away From Home

This is the new stomping ground for Friction Powered.  The old one at Blogger still exists, so if WordPress doesn’t work out well, I can always return to it.  All feedback is welcome and appreciated.  Have a look around!

Kick-Off at 6:00 PM

The below advertisement was published in the August issue of NCSU’s Wolfpacker. Inexplicably, it did not appear in the September issue. Here’s hoping the reward poster will be up on the Jumbotron during tonight’s season opener against Central Florida, as well as at every home game hereafter until Michelle Young’s killer is brought to justice.
