I agree about Richard Hillman. This blog gave my husband and I a huge laugh though. That Hailey, what a villain!

Hahahah Emily is one fine villian! I'd love to see a post about how Emily is a villian (Clinkers?)

Kirk's wanton destruction of turkeys was vile.
Hayley's crimes against fashion are too numerous to bear.
And Emily's reckless law-breaking at the Red Rec and at the proposed strip joint shows she has remorse.

How about Emily, who is meant to be some sweet old lady and a christian, went behind Norris' back in order to make sure he had to pay all the bills in the house, whilst she paid nothing. And yes, he covered up that whole thing with Freda giving her a book as a present, but isn't she meant to be all forgiveness? And the sly looks she gives Rita, another one I dislike.
