Steve Wilkos Show:

Q. What other allegations were there?

A. Well, she also _allegated_ that I took our children out and buried them
in a ditch,              then dug them up, again.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
