Oh man. Maintaining this blog is a hard slog sometimes. It’s hardest when I run across stories picturing beautiful children who are no longer with us. Caitlin and Aidan Samuel are adorable in this photo provided by the BBC. But they’re not on the BBC because they’re angelic; they’re there because they were found suffocated to death in their homes. Their father, Perry Samuel of North Wales, was arrested at the scene of the crime, and will be arraigned today on a charge of first-degree murder. There’s no indication of motive yet.
I’ll save my snarky words for Perry Samuel after more information becomes available, and we learn better what went through this sick man’s head. For the moment, I’m too sad for outrage. God, what a stupid, tragic loss.
