Quotable Ben Franklin

When I heard this quote in my youth, it was phrased, "Nine men in ten are suicides; some are just slower than others." It was a caution about drinking and driving, eating unhealthy foods, etc. The actual quote is:

"Nine men in ten are would be suicides."

Apparently that also includes some women. One of those would be Kim Matuska, pictured right. Another would be one Christine Raines, who is the subject of this story:

CHICAGO - Drew Peterson's lawyer says Peterson has not yet filed for divorce from his missing wife Stacy even though he is now engaged to a 23-year-old woman.

Peterson, who was named more than a year ago as a suspect in his wife Stacy's disappearance, is engaged to be married.

Not only that, but Newsradio 780 is told by a source close to Peterson's family that the 23-year-old woman proposed to Peterson and that she made the proposal a couple of times before Peterson said yes.

The Chicago Sun-Times, citing a police source, identifies the woman as Christina Raines. Her father insists his daughter is engaged to Peterson.
