Thanks for this. I was hanging on every word. I'm not done yet but almost.

Great! How can you have sympathy for a monster? But.......

Right. Maybe growing up with my own shame and traumas I can almost imagine being that monster. But, I do see people act without guilt and I could never escape the mirror. Once in a while I meet people who obviously do not see themselves. I feel sorry for her, but am glad she got the consequences.

The Philip Larkin poem* quoted in the podcast holds true not only for Ghislaine, also Andrew. I am aware she had brothers and sisters but she was daddy's little girl.

*This Be The Verse

They fuck you up, your mum and dad.
They may not mean to, but they do.
They fill you with the faults they had
And add some extra, just for you.

But they were fucked up in their turn
By fools in old-style hats and coats,
Who half the time were soppy-stern
And half at one another's throats.

Man hands misery to man.
It deepens like a coastal shelf.
Get out as early as you can,
And don't have any kids yourself.

And they stuck by her. I signed up for his trial coverage too. We’re in a strange place now as the whole trial could really be declared a mistrial. It’s a real possibility.
