The Stewart Letter, What Do You Think? - By N.L. Belardes

I just posted the entire Stewart Letter on ABC23 (read related article).
What do I think? I think romance, love and lust can make people do really bizarre things. Hiring hitmen, people getting killed, living in fear, and a failed business, if Giangrossi gets found guilty. I'm thinking this is a far cry from what is supposed to be living the American dream.
The Stewart Letter itself, is it a cry for help? Is it just finger-pointing and waving the flag of accusation?
I keep hearing from people that this is playing out like a television drama. Only we need to remind ourselves in the community that even though we may be talking about this Stewart Letter on television, this is more than reality TV in our backyard. This is terrible news.
I'm sure a lot of lives are being affected by this event. Imagine living in Stewart's neighborhood. I would be living in fear too. Gunfire on more than one occasion, an almost burnt down house. What do you do if you have kids? Do you tell them, "Don't play by that man's house. He's dangerous. And the people who go there are dangerous."
But enough from me. What do you think about the Stewart Letter and this entire news story?
