Thread Name: 'Orrible Murder!
Subject: RE: 'Orribble Murder!!
I wqas in a used book sotre in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, a couple of years ago, and I picked up a tattered treasure called American Murder Ballads, by Olive Wooley Burt. It has all sorts of good songs, and I'll try to post some later (if I can find any that aren't already in the database) - but I guess the boss would prefer that I get some work done now.
Be sure to do a category search by putting @murder in the search box in the upper-right corner of this page. It appears that our Esteemed Editors, Dick and Susan, may be rather obsessed with the topic. If you want further evidence of this obsession, try @lynching, @deadbaby, @suicide, @poison, @execution, @death. Susan proudly announced the other day that there will be a @deadcat category soon. Remind me I don't ever want to be caught alone in a room with either Dick or Susan...
