And  This

 Plus this

Equals this. Delores Avery. Mother of Steven Avery in "Making a Murderer."

Yes, I confess to having an eye-guzzling marathon session of "Making a Murderer" on Netflix. It is "Fargo" meets "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" meets the OJ Simpson trial meets truly bad DNA.

Still not sure what the lesson is. Maybe the lesson is if a deplorably horrible and depraved human being gets sideways of inept police and hires sleazy lawyers, bad things happen. 

All I know is that anyone who questioned the suspect, Brendan Dassey, and did not haul off and repeatedly slap him, they deserve a medal. Lord knows I could not have done it. 

Several of the greatest people I know are from Wisconsin. Smart, hard-working, funny, great athletes. Those people are not on this show.
