Sally Quinn is convinced that she killed three people. Wouldn’t it be nice if an enterprising prosecutor indicted her based on her murder confession?
Sally Quinn, the widow of deceased WaPo executive editor Ben Bradlee, has been boasting about the fact that she murdered three people. Really:
Thanks to her just-released memoir, however, we now know the truth, that far from being an agnostic, Quinn was not only a true believer in the occult, black magic, and voodoo, she practiced these dark arts in the most wicked ways imaginable.
In fact, Quinn believes in the dark arts to a point where is certain she possesses the ability to murder people through the power of a hex, and on three occasions, with murder in her heart, she used that power. In her own mind, she is responsible for the deaths of three people whose only sin was offending her in some way.
John Nolte, from whom the above quotation comes, wants to highlight for people the fact that, for years, Quinn lied about her beliefs. In profiles and articles, she characterized herself as a mainstream Leftist atheist, with vaguely formed spiritual beliefs. She was, in her own words, a “learner,” whatever the heck that means.
The way I see it, though, Sally Quinn isn’t a “learner,” she’s a “murderer.” She may not have used guns or knives or poison, but she is absolutely clear in her own mind that she intended to kill three people, that she took steps to ensure their death and that, as a result of her efforts, those people died.
I’m not quite sure where Quinn lives, whether in D.C. itself (unlikely, but possible), a pricey Virginia suburb, or the Hamptons. In fact, her actions could easily have taken place in any of those jurisdictions. And in each of those jurisdictions, knowingly and intentionally causing someone’s death, without any self-defense at issue, is murder. [Read more…]
