Jaycee Dugard’s Home Run To Oprah Winfrey

jaycee-lee-dugard2JAYCEE Lee Dugard – Anorak’s look at Jaycee Dugard in the news: Mark Whicker wrestles Jaycee; Oprah Winfrey really wants Jaycee and Phillip Garrido’s songs to watch the girls go by…

We begin with Mark Whicker’s column in the Orange Couty Register, as the writer enganges in game of Tabloid Bingo as he tries to link the rape and kidnapping of a child with his vested interest: sports.
his versted interst: sports:

It doesn’t sound as if Jaycee Dugard got to see a sports page. Box scores were not available to her from June 10, 1991 until Aug. 31 of this year. She never saw a highlight. Never got to the ballpark for Beach Towel Night. Probably hasn’t high-fived in a while. She was not allowed to spike a volleyball. Or pitch a softball. Or smack a forehand down the line. Or run in a 5-footer for double bogey. Now, that’s deprivation.

She also never ran. Discuss.

How difficult to adjust to such cataclysmic change? More than that, who’s going to explain the fact that there’s a President Obama?


Congratulations, Jaycee. You left the yard.
