Happy Holidays(1)...There's a Killer on the Loose...

...in the UK. The serial killer has killed up to five women now, and latest reports coming from Belgium's Free metro website indicate that the Ipswich police are calling on Interpol. Some colleagues of mine suspect it's a useful way for the UK govt to use this as an excuse to tighten immigration. You might have heard, if you have been following the story, that the killer is suspected to have left the country. Free metro writes:


Les enquêteurs envisagent la possibilité que l'auteur des meurtres soit un voyageur ayant transité par le port de Felixstowe ou un itinérant ayant regagné l'Europe continentale


Put simply, investigators suspect that the perpetrator is a traveller who transited by the port of Felixstowe, or is someone who has travelled back to continental Europe.

This is scary stuff...

Serial killers have been among us for as long as one can remember, but it gives goosebumps to think that at a time when we should be reflecting on the good things in life; milk of human kindness and all that, and just enjoying the season, someone, somewhere could be walking with you, and have a a psyche so tortured and distorted he finids it matter-of-fact to kill five prostitutes within a ten-day period and casually...stop.

[the Observer newspaper has an interesting write-up by Minette Walters, celebrated crime writer]

The title of this blog entry, I hope, will not be my last one; I certainly wouldn't want to end this year with such a horrific ending, but, yeah, I'm in on a Sunday, and checking mail, cos, in some ten minutes, the whole staff is travelling three hours out of the capital to a beautiful, greener part of the country, where for three days, residing ini a beach resort, we plan our work for 2007.

I hope by the time we come back, the Ipswich killer would have been closer to getting caught. When truth becomes stranger than fiction, especially when it's so far away, we might just reflect that the families of those who were killed find serious peace of ming at a time when most will seek to go overboard and get themselves, as the Brits say, totally plastered/wasted.

I would like to wish all those of you--from Sissoula, Daniel; Jen; Laura Tooth; Anchored Nomad (hope you're a mother by now!!)the happiest of times and a concurrent festive season. Spare a thought for the less privileged when you can, and may you continue to make your unique contributions in the unique ways you make them!

Happy holidays...part I;-)
