I have read a couple of news stories about the investigation into the bone fragment, and I just want to say that I am really disturbed by the way some of them have characterized my reaction. One said I was “encouraged,” which is absolutely not a word I would choose to describe how I feel. Others have said I was “hopeful.” That is a word that could perhaps be used, but not by itself. Hopeful of what? Of a resolution, of finding the truth, or not having to keep doing this over and over and over again? Perhaps. But it absolutely requires a modifier.
I also want to let you know that my understanding is that the mitochondrial DNA tests have not begun. Hopefully we will have an idea of the time frame in the near future.
There is more I want to say, but I’m just too tired tonight.
