Strange But True

A woman who was recently crowned Miss Riverton (Utah) after impressing judges with her skill on the piano has been “accused of exercising a more sinister talent —  cooking up homemade bombs and throwing them from a car.” —  AP wire services

An American couple in Qatar were charged with causing the death of their daughter by starvation.

Self must admit, after reading about the case, she found it quite stunning.  The husband, Matthew Huang, was working on “two major infrastructure projects associated with improvements for the 2022 World Cup.”  Their daughter, Gloria, adopted from Ghana, had suffered from “severe malnutrition” in early childhood.  She would “periodically refuse food for several days and then binge-eat or get food from bizarre sources, such as from garbage cans or from strangers —  a behavior her parents traced to her impoverished upbringing and were trying to address . . .  When Gloria died, she was in an anorexic episode and had not eaten in as many as four days.” — Twitter Feed:  Gillian Flaccus at http://www.twitter.com/gflaccus

How very, very sad.
