    It's a damned shame. I grew up with Ethel in Brandon, have known her since E.L. Bing Elementary in 6th grade through high school (though we ended up at different schools). Ethel was always a good chick; smart, pretty, well-liked, and wholesome... not someone you'd think would do anything like this. She had a spotless reputation for the time I knew her. I, like her husband, am still trying to wrap my head around this.

    I'm following the story closely, and at first I thought the claim was made by a student that she had (expletive deleted) off somehow (my mom, a 32-year teacher, even admitted some students will concoct stories like this when they're tired of tutoring or their tutor, or sick of a particular teacher). When the news broke of the tapes that HCSO made, I was floored. I had spent the prior several days defending her when people talked about it and telling them of my personal relationship with Ethel and how there was no way in Hell she did it.

    If I was to talk to Ethel now, I'd have to just tell her she needs to get her act right, she's obviously not the same chick I knew way back when. I dunno, maybe even invite her to church.

    Ethel, you've shamed yourself and your family and all of the people that defended you when the accusation came to light. Damn.
