the Swinger's campground is up by Sandstone, straight up 35 (or maybe not straight, hey anything goes), there will be one temptation before it, that crazy casino on the right, so lots going on in the outstate areas, in fact maybe more going on than the cities, who knows.
(not like I know the location, just that is what I read), wishing I was ten years younger but according to the observations on age I am just getting going. One of my more interesting relatives, God rest his soul, was a swinger if he wasn't at the bar or in front of a slot machine.
It's always something people.

I met Rory a few years back through an online dating site for single people. We were totally platonic and he confided in me his involvment with this swingers group. I lost contact with him, but I recall him as being nothing but a totally nice, respectful kinda guy. Sadly, playing around with married people proved fatal for him. My thoughts are with his kids and family.

Your sadness over the unending stream of horrific news is shared by many, Con, myself included. Try to keep yourself afloat in the muck and hold tight to whatever faith sustains you. I believe in asking questions, and I believe that in quiet still moments of contemplation the answers are whispered in our ears. May the answers you get (or just the seeking of them) bring you some peace so we can continue our debates for a long time to come.

Zen, sincerely

Mrs. Bird, I understand your comments, but I think you're definitely in the minority. People
DO want to either ban the Internet or make it highly regulated. In case you missed it, "To Catch A Predator" is a very popular tv show and it shows the dangers of these people who talk on the Internet. I believe these shows will lead to the banning of the Internet. They show how dangerous it is to talk online. Our children and women will be safer if the Internet is either banned or very, very regulated. Right now it's too open.
maybe you should save yourself and log off....

Rory was our accountant for at least the past 10 years; he was smart and efficient. He became our friend as well. We are stunned that he is no longer with us. I'm glad he isn't aware of his name being splashed all over the news this week. Will miss him much.

Here I am, committing the pathetic human folly of adding to the rest of these mostly inane comments.

Statistically speaking, swinging is a fringe behavior, though consistently growing in popularity year by year. It carries with it the perpetual possibility that something negative could occur that wouldn't be as likely to occur if one did not partake of the lifestyle. That's commonly referred to as a "risk factor."

Not everyone who swings commits murder.

Not everyone who swings is a "nice" guy.

Not everyone who swings has found "the answer" to society's sexual "repression."

It is impossible to legislate morality, so regulate all you like, but the best and the worst will always rise and sink to their places in society.

Not everyone who uploads a message to a public forum has something worth listening to. And no, just because we have a thought, doesn't make us or it correct.

No one, including myself, has any right to judge the choices of others. An inclination, quite obviously. A right? No.

If these "tragic" events will serve no other purpose, perhaps they will encourage everyone to properly attend to their own faults and behave as though every action matters. Though only a movie character, William Munny was correct when he observed: "We all got it comin', kid."

Every community, every club, every lifestyle, every clan, every conty, state, country, family, etc has its own rules. Breaking these rules leads to reaction...it is a reaction. Something was broken. Who, why, when, what...we don't know...they do, they did...and paid the price. Unfortunately, nobody else should pay the price. I mean families. And becasue of this when the shame and sorrow goes down...they should find a good lawyer.

As a REAL FRIEND of Rory, you don't have a clue as to what has happened to him and his family...inluding both of HIS daughters and his son.. If you knew him at all and actually saw his daughters there is NO mistake that they are really his, just by looking at them. To say that you think that he got what he deserved and then go on to say that he will be sadly missed....WHAT AN A@@HOLE. MAybe sometime you should look in the mirror and decide what a friend is...former or not!!
Yes Rory will be sadly missed, by all his real friends, not FORMER FRIENDS
Sorry, I moved away 12 years ago, but all you have to do is look at the step dad to see who's her daddy. It doesn't take a dna test to figure that one out.

Just from what I gathered from the article, it sounds like the wife and her boyfriend met in a swingers chatroom. It sounds as if the husband was not privy to her lifestyle.
the husband was privy to her lifestyle. the three vacationed together at a swinger's resort and were involved in sexual escapades as a threesome. rory and delores decided to amend the rules on their own and carry out an affair seperate from her husband. they were both very selfish for doing this and their children suffer in the wake of their murders.

Andy, I'm nervous talking to you and Mrs. Bird. The Internet is a dangerous place. How do I know you won't lure me into a life of prostitution or that Mrs. Bird won't lure me into a life of stripping in Wisconsin? I have no guaranties that you won't. How can you say that protection for women and children is a bad thing? For anyone to think that and to call it "retarded" is unfathomable.
truth of the matter is you get lured into what you let your self get lured into. if you are a minor and want to have sex with the grownups, its up to you(or maybe up to your parents to teach you right from wrong). just because there are creeps on the internet that are willing to oblige every woman and child who is stupid to give out an address or tell strangers personal info doesn't mean you can blame the internet for making it possible

the internet is the last source of unbiased unregulated information and if you let them take that away from us than they are free to tell us anything they want to and we wont have any way to look through the bulls**t and find the truth

I can't believe the reporters who posted pictures of the people involved would be as disgusting and soulless to publicly release these things without thinking of these people's families and loved ones. It is sad that this person/these people would put suffering family through the ringer just to boost ratings-just a disgusting example of irresponsible journalism. Whoever did this should be punched in the face.

I built that house that the Healds lived in. I lived there for a few years, and then the Healds purchased it from my family.
The whole ordeal went down in the basement, wonder if it was my old bedroom?
