Or, Who Stole the Spellchecker?
Apparently, a document has surfaced that details the thoughts of Joran Van der Sloot while he was sitting in jail during the summer of 2005. The text is not particularly interesting and filled with inconsistencies. What IS interesting is the reaction across most of the Natalee Holloway related web sites.
The owner of a particularly biased forum that is of the opinion that Joran is the poster child for all things good about Aruba and the Netherlands allowed the rambling epic to stand for a time. He went on to “boldly” say he had his reasons for doing so. Others have chimed in that they are on the trail of the thief that might have stolen this “work of art” and posted it across the World Wide Web.
Now, maybe my thinking is just a little too basic, but I can’t help but wonder about the culpability of those that allowed the document to remain in public view. The damage, if there was any, only occurred because the document was publicized. Otherwise, it would have been much like winking in the dark. So, the question becomes just who carries the burden as to the proliferation of this unauthenticated text?
“Ah, but the strawberries! That's, that's where I had them. They laughed at me and made jokes, but I proved beyond the shadow of a doubt, and with, with geometric logic, that, that a duplicate key to the wardroom icebox did exist. And I would have produced that key if they hadn't pulled the Caine out of action. I, I know now they were only trying to protect some fellow officer.”
