Defending the truth is not something one does out of a sense of duty or to allay guilt complexes, but is a reward in itself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Do you suffer your thoughts to tamper with evil; and to dally with wrong-doing? If so; you are not sincere. God will regard your thoughts; for thoughts are heard in heaven. If you willingly sin in thought; if you are base and guilty there; because you think that no eye will see your thoughts; the guilt and baseness will sooner or later break into the outlets of word and deed -- from thought to wish -- from wish to purpose -- from purpose to word -- from word to act -- from act to habit -- from delight in the imagination to consent in the will -- from deed to repeated transgression; such is the genesis of sin.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Hostage is a crucifying aloneness. It is a silent, screaming slide into the bowels of ultimate despair. Hostage is a man hanging by his fingernails over the edge of chaos, feeling his fingers slowly straightening. Hostage is the humiliating stripping away of every sense and fiber of body and mind and spirit that make us what we are. Hostage is a mutant creation filled with fear, self-loathing, guilt and death-wishing. But he is a man, a rare, unique and beautiful creation of which these things are no part.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The problems of society will also be the problems of the predominant language of that society. It is the carrier of its perceptions, its attitudes, and its goals, for through it, the speakers absorb entrenched attitudes. The guilt of English then must be recognized and appreciated before its continued use can be advocated.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is criminal to steal a purse, daring to steal a fortune, a mark of greatness to steal a crown. The blame diminishes as the guilt increases.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

What is guilt? Guilt is the pledge drive constantly hammering in our heads that keeps us from fully enjoying the show. Guilt is the reason they put the articles in Playboy.More [05/02/2006 12:05:00]
We are a generation of women that has listened to the much louder voices of parents, teachers, employers, husbands and children while our own voices were small or muffled or totally ignored. Aging Out Loud gives us permission to not only listen to that voice but heed its warnings, laugh at its jokes and follow its directions, without guilt and without looking back.More [08/14/2006 12:08:00]
I suffer from Irish-Catholic guilt. Guilt is a good reality check. It keeps that 'do what makes you happy' thing in check.More [11/19/2006 12:11:00]
RJ: [showing the other animals around the houses] They *always* got food with them. We eat to live - these guys live to eat! Let me show you what I'm talking about!
[as he speaks he shows the other animals what humans do]
RJ: The human mouth is called a 'piehole', the human being is called a 'couch potato'.
[signifies telephone]
RJ: *That* is a device to summon food.
[signifies doorbell]
RJ: That is one of the many voices of food.
[signifies front door]
RJ: *That* is the portal for the passing of food.
[signifies delivery truck]

[signifies microwave]
RJ: *That* gets the food hot!

RJ: That's what they eat when they've eaten TOO MUCH food!
[signifies treadmill]
RJ: *That* gets rid of the guilt so they can eat MORE FOOD! FOOD! FOOD! FOOD! FOOD! FOOOOOD! So, you think they have enough?
[everybody nods]
RJ: Well, they don't. For humans, enough is *never* enough! And what do they do with the stuff they don't eat? They put it in gleaming silver cans, just for us!
[opens the thrash cans and throws them]
RJ: Dig in!More [04/27/2007 12:04:00]
Monty: You see I don't, I don't work with any exact boundaries of the law because I wasn't consulted when the god damn laws were made. No, instead nameless, faceless politicians, the so called protectors of the moral majority decide what is right and what is wrong. I mean come on. I govern my life around my own personal code of ethics, and I suggest that you do the same. That way if, within the constructs of my own morality, I were to do something that is considered illegal, so be it. I feel no guilt whatsoever and furthermore, if I were to buckle under the social weight of the system by adhering to laws that I do not truly believe in then I would be extinguishing the very fire of patriotism and individuality. So in sense, by having sex with Natasha, I'd be preserving the rights our four fathers fought and died for, right.More [05/10/2007 12:05:00]
Lt. Fergus Falls: Guilt or innocence, that's not my job. It's my duty to pick up scum-sucking punks like yourself who are accused of a crime. A jury of twelve really stupid people who are easily swayed by rich, fat-cat, slimy lawyers, who'll do anything but tell the truth, will sit in judgment of you. It's as American as a burrito.More [05/20/2007 12:05:00]
Miss Shields: Now I know that some of you put Flick up to this, but he has refused to say who. But those who did it know their blame, and I'm sure that the guilt you must feel would be far worse than any punishment you might receive. Now, don't you feel terrible? Don't you feel remorse for what you have done? Well, that's all I'm going to say about poor Flick.

Mr. Green: [gets up in front of everyone] I have something to say. I'm not gonna wait for Wadsworth here to unmask me. I work for the State Department, and I'm a homosexual.
[pauses as Wadsworth flips to the next page, clearly surprised; Mrs. Peacock makes a face of disgust]
Mr. Green: I feel no personal shame or guilt about this, but I must keep it a secret, or I will lose my job on security grounds.
[pause]
Mr. Green: Thank you.

Dr. Barringer, Clinic Director: [looking at Regan on the monitor screen] It looks like a type of disorder that you rarely ever see anymore, except in primitive cultures. We call it a somnambuliform possession.
Dr. Barringer, Clinic Director: [Regan has welts on her face and is screaming] Quite frankly, we don't know much about it except that it's starts with some conflict or guilt that eventually leads to the patient's delusion that his body's been invaded by an alien intellegence; a spirit if you will.
Chris MacNeil: Look, I'm telling you again and you'd better believe it, I'm not about to put her in a goddamn asylum! And I don't care what you call it! I'm not putting her away!
Dr. Barringer, Clinic Director: I'm sorry.
Chris MacNeil: You're sorry. Christ, eighty-eight doctors and all you can tell me is all of your bullshit...
Dr. Barringer, Clinic Director: There is one outside chance of a cure. I think of it as shock treatment. As I say, there is an outside chance...
Chris MacNeil: Will you just name it, for God's sake? What is it?
Male Doctor: Do you have any religious beliefs?
Chris MacNeil: No.
Female Doctor: What about your daughter?
Chris MacNeil: No, why?
Dr. Barringer, Clinic Director: Have you ever heard of exorcism?
Dr. Barringer, Clinic Director: [Chris looks at him baffled] It's a stylized ritual in which rabbis or priests try to drive out the so-called invading spirit. It's pretty much discarded these days, except by the Catholics who keep it in the closet as a sort of embarrassment. It has worked, in fact, although not for the reason they think, of course. It was purely the force of suggestion. The victim's belief in possession helped cause it; and just in the same way this belief in the power of exorcism can make it disappear.
Chris MacNeil: You're telling me that, I should take my daughter to a witch doctor? Is that it?More [10/22/2007 12:10:00]
Wendy Christensen: Julie... I need... I need help. I have such guilt over Jason. I should never have let that ride go... You know usually I'm such a control freak but I didn't do enough to stop it, I should have done everything I could to stop it... and I wish I could have another chance, but I never can... I don't wanna someday feel that way about you Julie... y'know I can't talk to Mom and Dad... You're all I have left. You think when I get a place you could come stay with me for while?
Julie Christensen: You know I will!... You take this, and I'll come get it when I visit you... and hey, on your end do you mind if I borrow the school camera for graduation tonight?
Wendy Christensen: Ah, sure, as long as you promise to bring it back to school on Monday.
Julie Christensen: Done!
Wendy Christensen: Oh, the battery is pretty low, so why don't you finish getting ready and I'll charge it up a bit for you.
Julie Christensen: Cool.More [11/07/2007 12:11:00]
Frollo: This is an unholy demon. I'm sending it back to hell, where it belongs.
The Archdeacon: [singing] See, there, the innocent blood you have spilt / On the steps of Notre Dame.
Frollo: I am guiltless. She ran. I pursued.
The Archdeacon: Now you would add this child's blood to your guilt / On the steps of Notre Dame.
Frollo: My conscience is clear.
The Archdeacon: You can lie to yourself and your minions / You can claim that you haven't a qualm / But you never can run from / Nor hide what you've done from the eyes / The very eyes of Notre Dame.More [04/03/2008 12:04:00]
Michael Collins: I think we were very aware of the situation in Vietnam, because a lot of our friends were flying airplanes in combat in Vietnam. And there would we have been, had we not been in the space program.
Eugene Cernan: I guess I can sort of admit it now, I've admitted it a little bit to a few friends, I've always had a guilt complex, to some degree. That was my war, good or bad, whether it was a good war or a bad war, we're not discussing it, but that was my war, to fight for my country, and my buddies were getting shot at and shot down and in some cases captured, and I was getting my picture on the front page of the paper. And I've always felt that they fought my war for me. They look at it totally different. They said, "You were doing something that this country needed more than anything else at the time. You were part of a program, the only thing we had to hold our head high and be proud of."More [04/13/2008 12:04:00]
Louis: I walked all night, I walked as I had walked years before when my mind swarmed with guilt at the thought of killing. I had thought of all the things I had done, and couldn't undo. And I longed for a moments peace.More [04/21/2008 12:04:00]

Corliss Archer: [after being called downstairs after Dorothy Pringle accused her of being pregnant] Yes, Daddy, I heard what she said. I wasn't actually listening. I couldn't help hearing.
Harry Archer: Then tell her that she's a liar. Go ahead. You have my permission to use the word.
Corliss Archer: [reluctantly] Well, I ...
Dorothy Pringle: If ever I saw guilt written on a human face, that's it.
Janet Archer: Sit down, Corliss.
Dorothy Pringle: If you want to lead up to it gently, ask her if she was at the corner of Jefferson and Fifth yesterday with her soldier friend having a cocktail.
Corliss Archer: It was a shrimp cocktail. I'll murder that Betty Campbell!
Harry Archer: What soldier?
Janet Archer: I know all about that, Harry, it was Private Earhart.
Corliss Archer: Corporal Earhart.
Janet Archer: Be quiet, Corliss.
Harry Archer: What's this about Dr. Fabling in the Professional Building?
Corliss Archer: I -
Dorothy Pringle: Now, there's no use trying to deny it. You were seen leaving his office yesterday and the week before by two different people. And yesterday you were seen meeting this soldier.
Janet Archer: Corliss. Corliss, look at me. Is that true?
Corliss Archer: Yes, Mother.
Janet Archer: Oh, darling.
Dorothy Pringle: I'm sorry, Janet. But perhaps in the future you'll be a little bit more careful when you talk about people leading people astray.More [06/06/2008 12:06:00]
Lila: Chris? Sit down.
[he comes over and sits down, as she pours them each a brandy]
Lila: Drink that.
[he takes a small sip]
Lila: Toss it, that way it's medicinal.
[he knocks back the drink]
Lila: Good! It's vital for a man to have a couple of slugs in him before discussing heartache. I think Hemingway told me that.
Christian: You knew Ernest Hemingway?
Lila: Margaux, actually. But beauties don't always escape tragedy.
Christian: Oh, God, this is hell. I've done something... I'm guilty. And I'll burn for it.
Lila: Funny thing about guilt: There's nothing so bad that you can't add a little guilt to it and make it worse; and there's nothing so good you can't add guilt to it and make it better. Guilt distracts us from a greater truth: we have an inherent ability to heal. We seem intent on living through even the worst heartbreak.
Christian: How?
Lila: Hm. Practice.More [07/11/2008 12:07:00]
Oliver:
Now I see it all.



Stanley:
What?



Oliver:
"What". Don't try to alibi. You know you stole this money from that old lady. Why guilt is written all over you.



Stanley:
What do you mean?



Oliver:
I mean that you're going to give this money back and make a full confession!



Stanley:
A confession of what?



Oliver:
And to think after all these years I've been fostering a common theif. A viper in my bosom!



Stanley:
Whose bosom? What are you talking about?



Oliver:
Don't try to bluff me! To think you would bite the hand that was feeding you. You snake in the grass. You traitor! You sheep in wool clothing. You double-crosser. You judist! You... You...!



Stanley:
Stop! Don't call me a "You-you".

Ernst Janning:
There was a fever over the land. A fever of disgrace, of indignity, of hunger. We had a democracy, yes, but it was torn by elements within. Above all, there was fear. Fear of today, fear of tomorrow, fear of our neighbors, and fear of ourselves. Only when you understand that - can you understand what Hitler meant to us. Because he said to us: 'Lift your heads! Be proud to be German! There are devils among us. Communists, Liberals, Jews, Gypsies! Once these devils will be destroyed, your misery will be destroyed.' It was the old, old story of the sacrifical lamb. What about those of us who knew better? We who knew the words were lies and worse than lies? Why did we sit silent? Why did we take part? Because we loved our country! What difference does it make if a few political extremists lose their rights? What difference does it make if a few racial minorities lose their rights? It is only a passing phase. It is only a stage we are going through. It will be discarded sooner or later. Hitler himself will be discarded... sooner or later. The country is in danger. We will march out of the shadows. We will go forward. Forward is the great password. And history tells how well we succeeded, your honor. We succeeded beyond our wildest dreams. The very elements of hate and power about Hitler that mesmerized Germany, mesmerized the world! We found ourselves with sudden powerful allies. Things that had been denied to us as a democracy were open to us now. The world said 'go ahead, take it, take it! Take Sudetenland, take the Rhineland - remilitarize it - take all of Austria, take it! And then one day we looked around and found that we were in an even more terrible danger. The ritual began in this courtoom swept over the land like a raging, roaring disease. What was going to be a passing phase had become the way of life. Your honor, I was content to sit silent during this trial. I was content to tend my roses. I was even content to let counsel try to save my name, until I realized that in order to save it, he would have to raise the specter again. You have seen him do it - he has done it here in this courtroom. He has suggested that the Third Reich worked for the benefit of people. He has suggested that we sterilized men for the welfare of the country. He has suggested that perhaps the old Jew did sleep with the sixteen year old girl, after all. Once more it is being done for love of country. It is not easy to tell the truth; but if there is to be any salvation for Germany, we who know our guilt must admit it... whatever the pain and humiliation.

Atticus Finch:
[his closing statement] To begin with, this case should never have come to trial. The state has not produced one iota of medical evidence that the crime Tom Robinson is charged with ever took place... It has relied instead upon the testimony of two witnesses, whose evidence has not only been called into serious question on cross-examination, but has been flatly contradicted by the defendant. Now, there is circumstantial evidence to indicate that Mayella Ewel was beaten - savagely, by someone who led exclusively with his left. And Tom Robinson now sits before you having taken the oath with the only good hand he possesses... his RIGHT. I have nothing but pity in my heart for the chief witness for the State. She is the victim of cruel poverty and ignorance. But my pity does not extend so far as to her putting a man's life at stake, which she has done in an effort to get rid of her own guilt. Now I say "guilt," gentlemen, because it was guilt that motivated her. She's committed no crime - she has merely broken a rigid and time-honored code of our society, a code so severe that whoever breaks it is hounded from our midst as unfit to live with. She must destroy the evidence of her offense. But what was the evidence of her offense? Tom Robinson, a human being. She must put Tom Robinson away from her. Tom Robinson was to her a daily reminder of what she did. Now, what did she do? She tempted a Negro. She was white, and she tempted a Negro. She did something that, in our society, is unspeakable. She kissed a black man. Not an old uncle, but a strong, young Negro man. No code mattered to her before she broke it, but it came crashing down on her afterwards. The witnesses for the State, with the exception of the sheriff of Maycomb County have presented themselves to you gentlemen, to this court in the cynical confidence that their testimony would not be doubted, confident that you gentlemen would go along with them on the assumption... the evil assumption that all Negroes lie, all Negroes are basically immoral beings, all Negro men are not to be trusted around our women. An assumption that one associates with minds of their caliber, and which is, in itself, gentlemen, a lie, which I do not need to point out to you. And so, a quiet, humble, respectable Negro, who has had the unmitigated TEMERITY to feel sorry for a white woman, has had to put his word against TWO white people's! The defendant is not guilty - but somebody in this courtroom is. Now, gentlemen, in this country, our courts are the great levelers. In our courts, all men are created equal. I'm no idealist to believe firmly in the integrity of our courts and of our jury system - that's no ideal to me. That is a living, working reality! Now I am confident that you gentlemen will review, without passion, the evidence that you have heard, come to a decision and restore this man to his family. In the name of GOD, do your duty. In the name of God, believe... Tom Robinson.

[Estelle, Dr. Craven, Dr. Bedloe and Rexford are all bound to columns in the dungeon] Can't you get your hands free father?



Dr. Craven:
I'm afraid not my dear. What with Dr. Scarabus having turned me into a statue and then binding me like this.



Dr. Bedloe:
I know I... I know I'm a disgrace.



Rexford Bedlo:
I had a somewhat stronger word in mind.



Dr. Bedloe:
But son, you know that, that everything I tried in life I was a failure. Only, only the day I joined the Brotherhood of Magicians. Oh I, I was the happiest man on earth. I still remember how happy I was. And then when, when Dr. Scarabus offered to teach me superior magical knowledge for luring Dr. Craven here, I just couldn't resist that magnificent award. But Erasamus, believe me with all my heart I regret what I have done to you.



Dr. Craven:
You are not alone in guilt sir. I too have failed at the task of living.



Dr. Bedloe:
Oh no.



Dr. Craven:
Oh yes, yes. Instead of facing life I turned my back on it. I know now why my father resisted Dr. Scarabus. Because he knew that one cannot fight evil by hiding from it. Men like Scarabus thrive on the apathy of others. He thrived on mine and that offends me. By avoiding contact with the brotherhood I've given him freedom to commit his atrocities, unapposed.



Dr. Bedloe:
You sure have!



Dr. Craven:
I'm sorry.

Rex asked for my hand in marriage, and you turned him down. What do you expect me to do, hug you?



Bonnie Lockhart:
I want - I want you to be happy more than anything.



Mimi:
Bull! You want me to be rich so you can be rich.



Bonnie Lockhart:
You can't be happily married if - if you don't know where your next meal's coming from, baby.



Mimi:
Excuse me? Excuse me? Bonnie Lockhart is giving marriage tips? You don't know the first thing about being married or being in love.



Bonnie Lockhart:
That's right, I don't. I drew the short straw when I married your good-for-nothing father, but I want better for you, baby.

Mom... I finally have a guy who loves me, he's good to me... and you're so jealous...



Bonnie Lockhart:
Jealous?



Mimi:

Bonnie Lockhart:
Jealous?

Yes. Yes. You try to make it sound like - like everything you do is for me and Patrick and Connor, but it's a big fat lie. You're out for number one, and if that means having to steal from your own kids, then oh, well!

You're not my mother.

No, I don't want to hear it! I don't want to hear it, not - not the 20... hours of labour, not the 30 pounds you gained. I'm through. I'm through letting you guilt me. I never - I never want to see you again. Leave me alone.

King Henry VIII:
Nan, is it true?



Anne:
Have you stepped into your own trap, my lord? Any evidence you have against me, you yourself bought and paid for. Do you now begin to believe it?



King Henry VIII:
Anny, the court is still in session to decide your... verdict. I don't want to hear your guilt from them, I want to hear it from your lips.



Anne:
That I was unfaithful to you?



King Henry VIII:
Yes, just that. Were you unfaithful to me whilst I still loved you? Of course, I'll never know. Whether you say aye or no, I shall never know.



Anne:
You come here to make sure whether there was truly adultery, Because that would touch your manhood or your pride. And even so, my heart and my eyes are glad of you. Fool of all women that I am, I'm glad of you here. Go, then. Keep your pride of manhood, you know about me now.



King Henry VIII:
Nan, is it true that you're glad to see me?



Anne:
Yes, it's true.



King Henry VIII:
Then, Anne, lets do all gently for old times sake. I have no wish to harm you, and your words have moved me deeply. I must be free to have a son, and the son must be free to rule England when I die.



Anne:
Why must you leave a king to follow you, Henry? Why not a queen?



King Henry VIII:
This country has never been ruled by a queen. I know it never could be. We can never have a son now, God has spoken. I must have a son elsewhere. And it’s getting late. I'm not as young as I was.



Anne:
What do you want of me?



King Henry VIII:
Agree to annul the marriage and give up all rights. You shall go abroad and take Elizabeth with you. You will be well cared for. Please set me free.



Anne:
To marry Seymour and make our child a bastard? No. No. No.



King Henry VIII:
Nan... Nan, you leave me no choice!



Anne:
Once I told you any children we had would not be bastards. You promised marriage and the crown. Now you try to dance out of your promise. Well, I won't have it! We are man and wife together. King and Queen. I keep that. Take it from me as best you can.



King Henry VIII:
Then you have decided, and so have I!



Anne:
Before you go, perhaps you should hear one thing. I lied to you. I said "I love you", but I lied. I was untrue. Untrue with many.



King Henry VIII:
That is a lie.



Anne:
It is true. I was unfaithful to you with all of them. With half your court. With soldiers of your guard, with grooms, with stablehands. Look for the rest of your life at every man that ever knew me and wonder if I didn't find him a better man than you!



King Henry VIII:

[Opening narration]



Annie Savoy:
I believe in the Church of Baseball. I've tried all the major religions, and most of the minor ones. I've worshipped Buddha, Allah, Brahma, Vishnu, Siva, trees, mushrooms, and Isadora Duncan. I know things. For instance, there are 108 beads in a Catholic rosary and there are 108 stitches in a baseball. When I heard that, I gave Jesus a chance. But it just didn't work out between us. The Lord laid too much guilt on me. I prefer metaphysics to theology. You see, there's no guilt in baseball, and it's never boring... which makes it like sex. There's never been a ballplayer slept with me who didn't have the best year of his career. Making love is like hitting a baseball: you just gotta relax and concentrate. Besides, I'd never sleep with a player hitting under .250... not unless he had a lot of RBIs and was a great glove man up the middle. You see, there's a certain amount of life wisdom I give these boys. I can expand their minds. Sometimes when I've got a ballplayer alone, I'll just read Emily Dickinson or Walt Whitman to him, and the guys are so sweet, they always stay and listen. 'Course, a guy'll listen to anything if he thinks it's foreplay. I make them feel confident, and they make me feel safe, and pretty. 'Course, what I give them lasts a lifetime; what they give me lasts 142 games. Sometimes it seems like a bad trade. But bad trades are part of baseball - now who can forget Frank Robinson for Milt Pappas, for God's sake? It's a long season and you gotta trust. I've tried 'em all, I really have, and the only church that truly feeds the soul, day in, day out, is the Church of Baseball.

Howard W. Campbell Jr.:
I was deposited on to the streets of New York, restored to the mainstream of life. I took several steps down the sidewalk when something happened. It was not guilt that froze me; I had taught myself never to feel guilt. It wasn't the fear of death; I had taught myself to think of death as a friend. It was not the thought of being unloved that froze me; I had taught myself to do without love. What froze me was the fact that I had absolutely no reason to move in any direction.

Aaron:
Now, what a thing it is to be an ass. Here's no sound jest. The old man hath found their guilt and sends them weapons wrapped about with lines that wound beyond their feeling, to the quick.

And then all YOU have to do is go to church, light a candle, and pray to some stupid little statue for me and all is forgiven and forgotten, right mom? Then you can spend your days in a guilt free pursuit of more constructive activities like telling everyone else how screwed up their lives are. And then you no longer need the patience and understanding required to talk to your own son on some normal plain. And then that way you don't have to think about how tough it was for you when you were growing up and its probably a good thing too cause if you did, you'd realize what a lousy, goddam shitty-ass parent you are.

Narrator:
In the New York Herald, November 26, year 1911, there is an account of the hanging of three men. They died for the murder of Sir Edmund William Godfrey; Husband, Father, Pharmacist and all around gentle-man resident of: Greenberry Hill, London. He was murdered by three vagrants whose motive was simple robbery. They were identified as: Joseph Green, Stanley Berry, and Daniel Hill. Green, Berry, Hill. And I Would Like To Think This was Only A Matter Of Chance. As reported in the Reno Gazette, June of 1983 there is the story of a fire, the water that it took to contain the fire, and a scuba diver named Delmer Darion. Employee of the Peppermill Hotel and Casino, Reno, Nevada. Engaged as a blackjack dealer. Well liked and well regarded as a physical, recreational and sporting sort, Delmer's true passion was for the lake. As reported by the coroner, Delmer died of a heart attack somewhere between the lake and the tree. A most curious side note is the suicide the next day of Craig Hansen. Volunteer firefighter, estranged father of four and a poor tendency to drink. Mr. Hansen was the pilot of the plane that quite accidentally lifted Delmer Darion out of the water. Added to this, Mr. Hansen's tortured life met before with Delmer Darion just two nights previous. The weight of the guilt and the measure of coincidence so large, Craig Hansen took his life. And I Am Trying To Think This Was All Only A Matter Of Chance. The tale told at a 1961 awards dinner for the American Association Of Forensic Science by Dr. Donald Harper, president of the association, began with a simple suicide attempt. Seventeen-year-old Sydney Barringer. In the city of Los Angeles on March 23, 1958. The coroner ruled that the unsuccessful suicide had suddenly become a successful homicide. To explain: The suicide was confirmed by a note, left in the breast pocket of Sydney Barringer. At the same time young Sydney stood on the ledge of this nine-story building, an argument swelled three stories below. The neighbors heard, as they usually did, the arguing of the tenants and it was not uncommon for them to threaten each other with a shotgun, or one of the many handguns kept in the house. And when the shotgun accidentaly went off, Sydney just happend to pass. Added to this, the two tenants turned out to be: Faye and Arthur Barringer. Sydney's mother and Sydney's father. When confronted with the charge, which took some figuring out for the officers on the scene of the crime, Faye Barringer swore that she did not know that the gun was loaded. A young boy who lived in the building, sometimes a visitor and friend to Sydney Barringer, said that he had seen, six days prior, the loading of the shotgun. It seems that the arguing and the fighting and all of the violence was far too much for Sydney Barringer, and knowing his mother and father's tendency to fight, he decided to do something. Sydney Barringer jumps from the ninth floor rooftop. His parents argue three stories below. Her accidental shotgun blast hits Sydney in the stomach as he passes the arguing sixth-floor window. He is killed instantly but continues to fall, only to find, three stories below, a safety net installed three days prior for a set of window washers that would have broken his fall and saved his life if not for the hole in his stomach. So Faye Barringer was charged with the murder of her son, and Sydney Barringer noted as an accomplice in his own death. And it is in the humble opinion of this narrator that this is not just "Something That Happened." This cannot be "One of Those Things...” This, please, cannot be that. And for what I would like to say, I can't. This Was Not Just A Matter Of Chance. Ohhhh. These strange things happen all the time.
