You probably noticed a lack of updates over the last few day. I apologize for that, but a couple of ailments back to back have me pretty much down for the count. First I experienced one whooper of a migraine headache that forced me to spend most of my time lying down in a darkened room.
That has passed, but since then I’ve felt an overwhelming tiredness that I can’t seem to shake. I’ve been sleeping 18 to 20 hours a day, which doesn’t leave a lot of time for writing and researching. I’m hoping another good night’s sleep will get me to the point where I can finish the three stories I’ve tried to write these last few days but just didn’t have the energy and clear mind to finish.
Someone put something where it should not have been and made things not work.
I put the thing where it should have been, instead of where it had been put, and things work now.
If they don’t work, you know where to find me.
We’ve also had some changes made that were put into place to speed up the site a bit. Everything should run noticeably faster, but updates might take a bit longer to see.
In the midst of all the horribly horrific things that we see here every day, I just have to share this story with everyone.
A story of a pedophile inflicting his own punishment.
A story, that I regret to say, sent me into hysterics—of the laughing kind.
In 2004 Damiene Iriarte, 26, of Brooklyn plead guilty to two misdemeanors for raping a 13 year old girl (that is NOT the funny part—just so you know). Mr Iriarte was found sometime last week naked and bleeding behind a building in the New York City Borough earlier last week. Why was he bleeding? Well, you may want to empty your bladder first, cuz you might just pee a little bit.
Every now and then, admin forwards me an email from a family member complaining about some story we did about their loved one. The one we received today, concerning admin’s article on Carlton Wood, the convicted pedophile, is a perfect example of this type of email, except it was a bit more amusing than usual. So amusing, in fact, that after I sent a reply to Ms. Todd and forwarded a copy to admin so he could check it out, since I was responding for both of us, admin replied to me with the words, “Nice, post it as a post.” Great idea, don’t you think? So here it is folks, the infamous “Mary Todd” letter, along with our reply email. Hope you enjoy it:
Today is the day when Christians all over the world celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ Of Nazareth. Now whether or not you believe Jesus was the Son of God, one has to admit that while he was preaching he said a lot of beautiful, intelligent things. A scribe once tried to trick him into blaspheming by asking:
“What commandment is the foremost of all?”
“The foremost is;
‘Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is one Lord; and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’
“The second is this;
‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’
We’re having some issues with our server. It appears that PYSIH is, once again, too sexy for it’s hardware.
We expect the problem to be resolved soon, because we’re throwing money at the problem.
Every dollar we bring in, through advertising or donations or by you supporting our sponsors, goes to paying the hosting bill and keeping the lights on. Usually it is not enough, but I don’t mind paying a bit out of pocket to keep PYSIH.com up and running.
Thank you for reading.
I was thinking about how long I’ve been involved with People You’ll See In Hell. I guess I started lurking in back in late 2007, and throughout the whole time leading up to today, the one group of people that proved the most frustrating are the family, friends and supporters of people who get written up on our site.
Most of the people who’ve been here a while remember the reaction from the family of Timothy Poling after admin did a story about him. How satisfying for the good guys was it to see him convicted and receive a life sentence? And yet his family refused to let up. As a matter of fact, I was threatened by one of his relatives which amused the hell out of me.
To All Members of PYSIH.com:
Some of you may know me, some may not. I’ve been a lurker on this site for a little over 10 months now, but not until recently did I come to become accepted into your family. I have been in the US Army for the last 44 months (3 years, 8 months for those keeping track) and have been in Iraq since Jan of 2008. As I prepare to go back home, I would like to say a couple of words.
