    "Bored beer can collecting housewives"

    Hi Everyone,

    Remember when John Ramsey called us all "bored beer can collecting housewives?" Or words to that effect.

    Can anyone dig up for me the media outlet where he was quoted saying this lovely description?

    I know he said it but I can't find it anywhere.

    Any help you can give me I would appreciate it.

    Thanks,
    Tricia

    Hi, Tricia. All I could find was this (which I would guess is why you're asking):

    (I'll keep looking when I can, if no one else finds it first.)

    Might be hard to find the original statement by Ramsey because of all the old information that's been lost over the years. It would have to be from before 2007:

    Found this on another forum from Aug 20, 2006:

    "John Ramsey once referred to the people who follow this case on the Internet as, “beer can collectors.” this is a quote from forum for justice about proffessor Tracey."

    ...and possible reference to it from the old JW forum (circa March, 2000). Is that why someone would start a thread titled "Haiku for beer can collectors!"?

    Wouldn't someone whose daughter was killed by an unknown assailant be thrilled that people would be assisting in any way they possibly can--even internet posters--in the remote event that someone out there holds a key piece of information?

    Even a "beer can collecting" housewife?

    WOW you all have good memories.

    This was just sent to me via email
    Death of Innocence page 307 hard cover:
    1. John Ramsey commented in his book "Death of Innocence" that people on the Internet should "stick to reading tabloids and collecting beer cans,"( Page 307, H.C.)
    I swear at some point he said "housewives"

    Dang you guys are GOOOOD!!!

    Thanks everyone.

    Feel free to keep discussing. I wonder what John Ramsey would say about us now. LOL

    I don't understand the reasoning of having discussions in old threads. It causes every single thread to go off topic in many directions.

    I just roll with it. Its either that, not post, or find a different forum and in 2016 there aren't many options. That topix forum is terrible.

    To use words than an old friend of mine (and I KNOW he's reading!) would appreciate: Once more, the Sith rule the galaxy.
    I'm as mad as HELL and I'm NOT gonna take it anymore!.

    While I'm not IDI, I read the IDI thread front to back. It helped me to understand the arguments against it. Yes, it did cause some combat, but it can hold some balance. Without balance, the entire household, their friends and anyone who works with them suddenly become peodofiles with clubs. The thing gets so far from reality that it starts to look like a dark graphic novel.
