I just finished watching that BTK Killer TV movie and it never dawned on me that this dude was a father.
It got me to thinking, how would I react if my father was a serial killer. I honestly don’t know.
My first thought would be to completely disown him. I mean, hell, that would be easy for me. It’s not like I haven’t shut out people before (and for a lot less).
But, man, I don’t know if I could do that.
And, seriously, what the hell would we talk about when I went to visit him in the pokey? The Redskins? My job? His first victim?
I think that’s the part that bothers me the most. Not the fact that my dad killed a bunch of people, but the fact that I wouldn’t know what to talk about with him.
