Whoa!  Jump back from this!  Ok, so I guess JonBenet Ramsey wanted to be
raped and killed - she just didn't know it?  Didn't know she was sending out

Why do we "have to ask 'why' such and such a person?" - "Why that night?" -
How can we possibly know what has gone on in a person's life to be able to
judge why they were victims of crime?  Oh, and believe me, a person who is a
victim of a crime continually asks "Why me?"

Your paragraph, Jerry, is to me, an example of how easy it is for the "karma
theory" to get ugly.
