Show notes 2/17: Another eyewitness account to Amy Bishop’s murder spree, more on her past and divorce is expensive….

Another shooting account

Dr. Amy Bishop sat quietly in a biology faculty meeting for nearly an hour before opening fire without warning, a 9 mm pistol held steadily in both hands, turning from one professor to the next, her face locked in an expression of anger, a survivor said.”She came planning to do this. She had that gun with her,” said Dr. Debra Moriarity, dean of graduate studies at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, on Tuesday. “She sat through that whole meeting without saying a word.”

Moriarity and the rest of the biology faculty had gathered on the third floor of the Shelby Center on Friday afternoon to talk about proposed budget cuts, about scheduling for next fall, about a senior seminar that had grown too large.

Dr. Ng’s account is here

Amy Bishop practiced shooting with her husband

James Anderson said his wife, Amy Bishop, didn’t do anything unusual in the days before Friday’s shooting. Bishop, a Harvard-educated neurobiologist, is accused of pulling a gun at a faculty meeting and shooting six people, three fatally. Two of the survivors remained in critical condition Monday.

Anderson said he knew his wife had a gun, but didn’t know when or how she got it.

“I really don’t know how she got it, or where she got it from,” he said.

Police have previously said Bishop had no permit for the gun they believe she used in the shooting, and investigators said they didn’t know where she got it. It’s not clear if that was the same gun that her husband knew about.

Bishop’s husband said nothing unusual happened on their trip to the shooting range, and that she didn’t reveal why she took an interest in target practice. Nothing in her behavior before the shooting foreshadowed the violence last week, either, he said.

Nothing unusual except go to a shooting range and pull out a random gun he had never seen before.

Amy Bishop has a weird history of violence

Police reports show that in 2002, UAH shooting suspect Amy Bishop punched a woman in the head for not giving her child a booster seat at a restaurant, all the while yelling, “I am Dr. Amy Bishop.”In March of that year, Bishop went to an International House of Pancakes in Massachusetts with family and asked for a booster seat for one of her children, according to The Boston Globe. When she found out another mother had gotten the seat, she walked over to the woman, demanded the seat and yelled profanities at her, according to the police report.

When the woman refused to give up the seat, she punched her in the head and yelled “I am Dr. Amy Bishop.”

The Globe said Bishop received probation and prosecutors recommended that she be sent to anger management classes. It’s unclear if she ever went. The victim in the assault declined to talk to the Boston newspaper.


Sounds like another Ivy leaguer

A cheater is a keeper?

To give them a fighting chance, he points couples to the family services center for counseling, where you’ll find director Jerry Johnson.

“It gets back to how tolerable are we going to be with this unpleasant situation,” Johnson said.

He says couples are willing to tolerate a lot more than they used too, even infidelity.

A big reason: the economy.  The idea of splitting things down the middle can make some think twice.

“When times get tough, the tough stay married. I think sometimes that is true, not because of choice but because of necessity,” Johnson said.

Divorce may be slowing down but infidelity surely is not.

The national science foundation survey says in any given year, about ten percent of married people say they have had sex outside the marriage.

If you say yes you are a prostitute…

They then reference two trainwrecks…

Finding out your mate is cheating could send a catastrophic blow to any marriage but not everyone gives up so easily.

Take Bill and Hillary for instance, they’ve managed to keep it together and there’s even been talk of Tiger Woods and Elin trying to patch things up.

Prostitutes…for political gain and money.
