We have arrived at the State of Irrelevance. Unpack. Defecate on the front porch, if you wish. In fact, do anything you wish, with anybody you wish, for as long as you wish. No one will say a thing.
Apart from a few brief moments to mourn in private once her daughter Jessie's pregnant body was discovered, Patricia Porter was readily available to the media, which carefully avoided any trenchant inquiry.
