    Psycho!! What is with all these cowardly little goofs beating and stabbing women…especially in front of their children!!???? What, afraid if they fight a man they might get punched out so they feel tough beating on women?

    wow, a guy who repeatedly stabbed someone 20 times in front of their children reminds you of your ex??

    hopefully this Shelley guy gets what’s coming to him for such a horrendous attack.

    But Nancy, since you feel the need to justify your “singleness” to me, let me assure you, there’s no need. I don’t judge the entire male race on the actions of one man.

    Yes Jo, he reminds me of my ex and I don’t have to justify my “singleness” to you, I just figured I would let you know seeing as you previously jumped to the conclusion that I am a bad parent and that my children would be better off with their “donor”…meanwhile you have no idea! My “singleness” is for ME it is not a judgement against the “entire male race”…if I was judging the entire male race I would be lesbian, wouldn’t I? I do NOT like woman beaters and child abusers though.

    that’s just as bad as what that guy did on the greyhound bus in Manitoba. Why the hell would someone do that, it dosent matter how mad you get. Settle things like an adult, with talking. There is no resone for someone to almost die because of an arguement.

    In my opinion, people like that have no right to live. At the very least, they should be locked up for the rest of their lives, and not in some Club Fed either, they should do real, hard time.
