While most figure Lizzie Borden had been the one who murdered her parents, she was tried in court, but the jury thought she was not guilty. After her release from court, she told the press that she was "the happiest woman in the world."

Going free would make one happy I suppose

Kind of like OJ Simpson.

I've watched a few documentaries about her, and I must admit her story was quite gripping.

Makes ya say "hmm"

Sandra said...

Yikes. Happy woman because she was found not guilty? Or happy because she beat the rap?

"Lizzie Borden took an ax
And gave her mother 40 whacks
When she saw what she had done
She gave her father forty-one"

Whatever poet came up with THAT (the prosecuting attorney, maybe?) sure wasn't convinced of her innocence!
