Sometimes I can’t resist…

      Over the last four or five days, I’ve been somewhat obsessed with the story of Kara Beth Borden and David Ludwig. For anyone who hasn’t been watching the news or reading my forums, it goes something like this:

14-year-old Kara Borden was secretly dating 18-year-old David Ludwig, and the two were quite possibly having sexual relations. On Sunday, November 13th, Borden’s parents discovered that Kara had lied to them about going to a sleepover at friend’s house the previous night and had actually spent the night with Ludwig. So Michael and Catheryn Borden called Ludwig over to their Lititz, PA home sometime Sunday, presumably to tell him that he couldn’t see their daughter anymore. Ludwig apparently didn’t like this idea, because he shot and killed both of them, grabbed Kara, and sped off in his car. The two were taken into custody 28 hours later on Monday afternoon, 20 miles west of Indianapolis on Monday, after a car chase ended in a crash. Ludwig was arrested and Kara was returned to her family. David Ludwig is currently being charged with the double murder, kidnapping, and reckless endangerment. Statutory rape will inevitably be thrown on there as well. Ludwig has reportedly been very calm and cooperative since his arrest. Currently, police do not believe that Kara Borden was a willing participant in murder of her parents. She is said to be in a total state of shock, confusion, and horror.

So, as you can see, the whole thing is pretty horrible. Unfortunately, that didn’t stop me from making a totally inappropriate comic about the situation. Sorry, I can’t help it.

    It’s just SO RANDOM the murders. Both these kids were so normal, no one could see it coming. And now this tragedy has happened… And I still find it funny as hell to make fun of on David’s MySpace. On the plus side, I’m making a lot of new friends. On the negative side, I am making light on a horrible incident. I certainly hope God has a sense of humor… :twisted:

    Of course He has a sense of humour. The Life of Brian was clearly mistaken. If my Petra article hasn’t gotten me killed, nothing will. Kudos on the comic Syd. Scruples were never your thing anyway.

    Speaking of Petra, you should track down some Pillar. It was some alt-metal Christian band that Kara and David listened to. I was disappointed, they don’t mention Jesus anywhere near as many times as I’d like. Pretty much it just sounds like Linkin Park, POD, or any other secular radio rock band.
