The use of the regular feature's title, "The Hat Squad", didn't seem at all appropriate.....

Patsy Ramsey, the mother of the little girl murdered in Boulder, Colorado, a decade ago, has passed away at the age of 49 due to cancer.

Her presence was marked in Toobworld by two televersions: Marg Helgenberger, who played her in "Perfect Murder, Perfect Town: JonBenet And The City Of Boulder", and in "Getting Away With Murder: The JonBenet Ramsey Mystery" in which Judi Evans Luciano portayed JonBenet's mother.

If the case is ever solved, I would expect we will see yet one more televersion of everyone involved in that case. And should the mystery ever be conclusively resolved, then the first TV production to portray the whole sordid affair should be designated the version of the main Toobworld.

It's just a shame that this tragedy happened in the first place and has to sully the landscape of the TV Universe, but that's life as seen on TV.....

With shows like "Millenium" and "The Inside", you're always going to have that sick element portrayed who prey on children.

But I know what you meant, I think - at least with those shows you can pull away and reassure yourself that it's only fiction.

However, the tragedy of JonBenet was real life. I can't even believe they made tv movies about the case, let alone that you would discuss it as such and quibble over who gets to be the prime selection for future viewing. Ugh.
