Now you call it madness (but I call it love)

I can’t forget the night I met you,
That’s all I’m dreaming of.
Now you call it madness,
But I call it love.
—Nat King Cole, “You Call It Madness
(But I Call It Love)”

Bigamy, Forgery, Fraud - College of Marin Band Director Implicated In Reno Divorce

The film Crazy Love is out and it’s about the infamous New Yorkers, Burt and Linda Pugach just in bizarre time for the hyped reconciliation of Joey Buttafuoco and Amy Fischer. Marin, not to be out done has James and Morgan Olson. Recent court papers (Reno District Court DV07-00352, Marin CV 070655, FL6764, FL7442) provide glimpses into a secret world of adultery, sex, bondage, domination, cross-dressing, double lives, and fetishes. Into this vacuum of secrecy, rumors have flown. Wonder what would happen if we asked Jim to conduct the College of Marin’s Symphonic Band in Barber’s School For Scandal? What he has signaled in his Marin court papers, however, are themes that are the same recurring obsessions with Burt and Linda, Joey and Amy, Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, then Eddie Fischer leaving Debbie Reynolds for Elizabeth Taylor, Gavin and “the Mayor’s Mistress”, the Matirx’s Larry and “Isla, the Dominatrix,” and the rest of us who live Big or Crazy Love over Vanilla Love. Try it. The taste grows on you. All involve spectacular perversion, pursuit, divorce, gripping lust, adultery, escapism, drive for money and power, marriage, the sadness of separation, roller-coaster behavior, public masks, perfect volleys of he said/she said, obsessive love, glamour, the joy of repeated reconciliations, unconventional, kink, disturbing accusations, private games, bonds of habit and passion, false police reports, anger, bondage, forgery, lurid glimpses, weirdness, narcissism, romance, affairs, compulsion, secrecy, train-wreck, co-dependency, crazy, strange, strong attraction, long-lasting relationship, fraud, engrossing togetherness, anguish in misunderstandings, need for control, insecurity in each other’s love, living double lives while keeping up the appearance of propriety while begging to be exposed for the drama. It is an addiction, a connection, a co-dependency equally as necessary as eating, drinking and breathing.

Jim and Morgan have a February 16, 1991 Confidential Marriage issued in South Lake Tahoe. Confidential Marriage license are a common tool to avoid bigamy charges. They are issued in accordance with California State Family Code Part 4, Section 500. It has that when a man and a woman, not minors, have been living together as husband and wife, they may be married pursuant to this chapter by a person authorized to solemnize a marriage. State law allows confidential marriages with a minimum of fuss: no marriage license, no blood test, no three-day waiting period and, best of all, no public record that the marriage ever took place. Growing numbers of couples are using the law to avoid red tape and keep the marriage secret. In 1972, only 532 such weddings were performed in Los Angeles County and adjacent Orange County. Recently it was 12,212. 'It's one of the greatest laws,' says Edie Steinmetz, owner of the Doves of Happiness Wedding Chapel in Inglewood, a leader in the state's $700,000-a-year secret-marriage industry. 'It allows a lot of people to get married who otherwise would not be able to'—including the already married. Couples fill in a confidential marriage form, which is filed with the county clerk and is then unavailable for inspection by anyone. That makes it easy for applicants’ intent on bigamy. Says William St. John, Orange County clerk: 'There is nothing on the form that requires a couple to say how long they have been living together, if they had a previous marriage or divorce, and if the divorce is finalized.' Dr. A.W. Morey, owner of the Lafayette Wedding Chapel in Long Beach, shrugs off the bigamy problem. Chapel owners are legally authorized to preside at weddings as long as they have some sort of ministerial certificate, which in California is as easy to get as a secret wedding.

In the Reno court documents is documents and testimony from four witnesses who confirm Morgan’s claims. Photos of Jim and Morgan are on Morgan’s web page at http://www.scsr.nevada.edu/~alexa110/pdf/about.pdf. Marin County is one of the most affluent counties in the nation, with a median home price of $529,000. Home to U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer, it's also one of the most liberal. Prop 22 is14 simple words: "Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid and recognized in California". It passed with more than 60 percent of the vote. When one is married to more than one that's bigamy, a felony. When one is having an affair while with another, that's adultery.

“A guy who’s got the chutzpah to try to pull the wool over somebody’s eyes. That’s a good definition of a bigamist,” said University of Cincinnati clinical psychiatry professor Linda Chernus. “One (spouse) is hard enough,” Chernus joked, who has researched bigamists and believes generally they have such low self-esteem that they marry multiple spouses to compensate with a sense of “grandiosity.” “They need to control women, to keep secrets and keep autonomy so no one knows what’s going on inside of them,” Chernus said. “There may also be some underlying insecurity. “(Bigamists) have a sense of invincibility that they can get away with this. They think they can get away with anything,” she said.

According to the Reno, Nevada court documents, Morgan, a Reno Community College teacher, immediately after sending Jim two $10,000 checks, received an anonymous phone call from a woman in October 2006 at their Reno home that 'Jim had died.' That phone call led to the revelation of Jim’s double life and her subsequent divorce filing. The Marin court documents have that Jim filed four times in Marin to divorce Morgan (March 1991, less than thirty days after their marriage, second FL6764 filed March 23, 1992, the third filed August 31, 1992 in FL7442, the fourth October 19, 1994 Marin court FL 10061, in two going to Marin court ordered marital counseling by then Judge Michael Dufficy where Jim admitted his until then closeted cross-dressing and bondage fetish. Jim dismissed his first three divorces. In February 2007, Jim filed a Marin $1.5m libel suit against Morgan (CV 070655) claiming she has accused him of bigamy, having an affair with her, forging her married name of J. Morgan Olson in the purchase of a car in San Rafael, filing a false police report that she stole his car in Larkspur (although it was titled in both their names), sleeping with her during his four divorce actions, having Reno homeowners insurance with her, having a Nevada Living Trust with her, and of his cross dressing. In Jim's libel suit, he claims he divorced Morgan in Marin July 1996 then simultaneously admits he reconciled with her July 1996 in Reno where she had relocated to in September 1995. Jim's life with Morgan is a private, never-before-seen one in Marin - awash in androgyny, leather and B&D. Friends of Morgan say she says 'The divorce is not for Jim's fetishes, but for his infidelity.' Jim has again demonstrated his continuing willingness to take risks for his double life as there are recent ardent love letters from Jim to Morgan in the Reno court documents.

OK, so it isn’t a total secret that “Matrix” co-creator and producer Larry Wachowski is a cross-dresser — the relationship with dominatrix Mistress Isla Strix was never really hidden, as it destroyed two marriages — but the in-depth article in Rolling Stone revealed much more. In “The Mystery of Larry Wachowski,” Peter Wilkinson writes: “Leaving Los Angeles, he and Ilsa moved into a $2.7 million home in San Francisco, on a steep hill in the Castro, with sweeping views of San Francisco Bay.' Guess LA was just too tame for their tastes. The vast majority of cross-dressing men are heterosexual, and bondage, being tied up by an attractive woman during sexual intercourse, is the second most common male fantasy, with intercourse the first. One shrink anonymously commented 'Mr. Olson has identified himself as a cross-dresser into bondage and with leather, vinyl fetishes. His mask, his double life, is that of passive-aggressive, shrouded in secrecy and well into a mental disorder with all the classic symptoms of Inversion. His obsession with mirrors, the ballroom dancing, his immaturity, his choice of career in music, and musical instrument, the trumpet, his narcissism, his wardrobe, his arrogance, his double life, compulsions, reality confusion, and repression in one life are all evidence of his over concern with his own pleasures.”

Psychiatrists disagree about what forces are at work in men who cross-dress. One camp considers men of this type to have a 'gender-identity disorder,' to be 'women trapped in men's bodies.' In recent years, another group of doctors labeled some men who demonstrate these tendencies to be autogynephiles -- straight men who are essentially sexual fetishists, aroused by the thought or image of themselves as women. J. Michael Bailey, a professor of psychology at Northwestern University and the author of The Man Who Would Be Queen: The Science of Gender-Bending and Transsexualism, is a vocal proponent of the science behind autogynephilia, and although he declined to comment about Larry Wachowski, he did describe typical autogynephilic behaviors. 'Autogynephiles frequently mention having a longing to be a girl that begins in childhood,' says Bailey. 'But the first outward manifestation of it usually crops up in early adolescence, when they discover that it turns them on to wear women's clothing. What you do not see, despite frequent claims to the contrary, is evidence that these folks were notably feminine in childhood.' Some experts believe that men who want to be women also tend to be what Larry Wachowski appears to be: a guy with a jones for technology. In 1974, Donald Laub, a plastic surgeon, and Norman Fisk, a psychiatrist, conducted a study at the Stanford University School of Medicine of 769 patients. Of the male patients, Laub and Fisk discovered an interesting predisposition: ' . . . to be interested in mathematics and computer sciences.'

Naturally, cross-dressing impulses and potentials cannot be denied forever. They emerge partly, and in disguised form so as to elude the mechanisms of repression. For example, a boy may dream that he is a girl. And in dreams he may experience the totality of all these repressed thoughts and feelings. Perhaps the repression of these tendencies produces a form of 'arrested development.' These impulses linger in a state of continual half-activation, never fully on, but unable to be turned off until they are expressed. At this point, we should consider what happens with 'normal' male development--which perhaps is not so normal at all. The usual dynamic is that the male eventually projects his repressed female side onto women in his life. Part of his attraction to women is that they display (or he imagines they do) some of his own female traits which he cannot let himself express. He experiences his own anima vicariously through his female partners and other women. But these women have their own identities. They are who they are, not the man's projection. When a man projects his anima onto them, he is not seeing them as they really are, and he creates false expectations for them. That is bound to cause problems.

One can easily see examples of how cross-dressing leads to excess, or, at the least, fails to bring the cross dresser to a more balanced, happy, and effective way of life. How does the process go awry? One answer that perhaps the cross-dressing behavior becomes autonomous of the original goal: cross-dressing becomes a habit, rather than a spontaneous response to the impulse for personal completion. The analytic mind says 'I enjoy cross-dressing. Let me plan and arrange my life to facilitate this.' In any case, cross-dressing has secondary gains. For example, it is a way to escape reality. All people are prone to escapism, but the cross dresser is especially vulnerable. Cross-dressing is secretive and therefore less likely to benefit from corrective support and feedback from friends, family, and society in general. Inasmuch as the cross-dressing remains a detached and isolated part of the ego, there is nothing to say 'This much is enough.' As things progress, the CD may develop almost two personalities. The male side has a concept of the female as almost a different person. He may even refer to 'her' in the third person. At the same time the reverse may happen. The female may see the male as like a different person. This might seem like 'multiple personalities' making people think it's bad. But it isn't a psychiatric disorder. With multiple personalities, different personalities within the same person are unaware of each other. The cross dresser does not just wear women's clothes. He creates a new persona. Here both the male and female parts are completely aware of each other essentially living a dual life. For a married CD such, this can be problematic, as one wife knows about and accepts his cross dressing, his one persona, and the other only knows his second persona. Sounds like he just wants the women to fight for him and the best woman wins. Or, 'Imagine, for a moment, that you grew up having to hide a deep, dark secret. One so terrible that, if revealed, people will call you a 'pervert', a 'freak', or an 'abomination'. If you're lucky you'll only be called names; reveal your secret to the wrong people and you'll get harassed, beat up, perhaps even murdered. How would you feel if you couldn't even talk to anyone about it? Every representation society provides about what you feel inside is negative. If you suppress it until you are married, you can never tell your spouse for fear of divorce, losing your job, being legally denied visitation with your children. You're in for a lifetime of shame and guilt and denial. How would you deal with it?' You develop and live two lives. One life knows all about you and still loves you. Another life is your public mask who knows only the mask.

In the rigid Marin school world, social and sexual identities cannot shift, and must remain hidden. More Marin educators with apparent double lives. Sausalito's John Leary, the New College founder. Craig Benedict Lee on suspension as superintendent of the Lagunitas School District. Two San Rafael math teachers. Norm Burgos, a gym teacher and tennis coach at Tamalpais High School back in the papers after charged with sexual battery against a former member of the boy's tennis team, and was arrested on a $75,000 warrant following an investigation by the Mill Valley Police Department last year. A former athletic trainer at Terra Linda High School charged with molestation. A Drake High basketball coach charged with peeping and acquitted in a mistrial. A Novato youth soccer coach fired after getting arrested on indecent exposure allegations in San Francisco. A coach charged with having sexual relations with two girls at the Marin Water Polo Club. Father Gregory Ingels of Marin Catholic High School. Wow, those Marin educators lead some very interesting lives.

Jim met Morgan met in 1982, when he was the then 37 year old Band Director at Redwood High School. She was a then hot 28 year old College of Marin student. In Morgan’s court’s papers she writes “All my husband’s nonsensical stories and muddy allegations have no basis in fact or truth. What is way more credible is that my husband created his colorful and petulant stories and supporting documents to discredit me, to create damages to offset our impending divorce/annulment 50-50 division, and to escalate the drama - again to force me, or even perhaps his California wife, or perhaps both of us, to fight for him, to prove we “love” him. Which I learned about in the Marin court-ordered marital counseling in one of my husband’s several surly divorce filings against me is that getting a woman to fight for him is a characteristic of cross-dressers, which my husband admitted he is in this counseling, and he admitted that he loves it when I fight for him. That cross-dressers are immature men who are always insecure of the love of the woman who loves him and obsessively creates on-going drama to always get her to prove she loves him. That cross-dressers are passive-aggressive. I also learned that is why my husband has a leather, rubber, vinyl obsession, known as a fetish, for the clothes, costumes and sexual props/toys he bought us and insisted we wear and use, and why he demands his bondage and passive sexual activities with me, both activities unknown to me until my husband, 9 years older than me, started his sexual relationship with me.'

In Reno court are documents and testimony from four independent witnesses who further confirm Morgan's, the Nevada Mrs. Olson, claims. Paul Hogan, Jim and Morgan’s Reno mechanic, testified he had seen Jim and Morgan over the last ten years as husband and wife, most recently in September 2006. Mr. Hogan also provided an Affidavit of Resident Witness in Morgan’s Reno divorce filing under oath that Jim and Morgan were together in Reno as husband and wife. Clara Stamulis, a client of Morgan, testified she saw Jim with Morgan several times in 2005 and again in 2006 in Morgan’s Reno office and knew Jim to be Morgan’s husband. Shari Proske, a Reno Greater Nevada Credit Union employee, testified she knew Jim to be Morgan’s husband and had seen them together at the Reno credit union on several occasions over the past four years, last seeing them together at the Reno credit union in Fall 2006. Josh Neel, the tenant renting one of the Reno properties that Jim and Morgan own, testified he met Jim in September 2006 at that property that he then rented from them, and was introduced to Jim as Morgan’s husband. Jim admits in both court's papers that he reconciled with Morgan in July 1996, and that he executed a Nevada Living Trust with her in October 2000 that made each of them their sole beneficiaries. That Trust is still valid as of today. Wonder what the California Mrs. Olson thinks of that?

In 1992, Jim was accused in an action brought by his then student teacher from Dominican College, Cindy Wood. According to the Marin court records, Mrs. James K. Olson (Morgan Olson) obtained a restraining order against Ms. Wood when dozens a night phone calls were traced to Ms. Wood by the Sausalito police. According to the court documents Morgan wrote 'When I went to the Marin Court against Ms. Wood, she attacked me in court screaming 'your husband is a pervert, a cross-dresser and' she 'had filed sexual misconduct and harassment charges' against my husband. That was the first I had heard of any of that. I obtained a restraining order against Ms Wood, and later a civil judgment.' In the recent Marin court documents there is a written reconciliation acknowledgment notarized in October 2000 in Marin by a Marin notary where Jim acknowledges his July 1996 reconciliation and reaffirmations of his February 16, 1991 wedding vows with Morgan. In the Marin court documents Morgan writes and there is the supporting document in the Marin court records that 'on June 14, 2000, my husband did indeed twice forge my married name on the purchase of a car in San Rafael, California when my husband signed 'J. Morgan Olson' with his 'JKO' initials next to it (see attachment). Since it is my belief we were married at that time as well as today, my husband makes a big leap over the credibility gap that this activity implies my husband 'violated a criminal law by forging Alexandra’s signature,' as it was my belief then my husband had every right to forge my married Olson name when we bought the Buick in Marin as I didn’t then, and still now, don’t go to Marin. I haven’t filed any criminal documents about it as I then and now don’t consider it a criminal activity. This document supports my reasonable belief my husband and I are married as it, then and now, as my husband did forge my married name twice in our purchase of this car in San Rafael, California. He did it in the context of my husband, which is not a criminal activity.'

According to the Washoe County, Nevada public records, Jim and Morgan own five Reno properties titled in their still as of today valid Nevada Living Trust. There are copies of their Reno home owners and landlord’s insurance policies in the names of James and Morgan Olson in the court records, with James Olson as the primary insured. If Jim isn’t married to Morgan as he now claims, then he’s been involved in several years of insurance fraud, and a few other frauds. Those Reno homeowners and landlord's policies are from both years before and after Jim's now claim of his marriage to his California wife, Lucy. Again wonder what the California Mrs. Olson thinks of that?

In the Marin court papers, Morgan wrote, 'I reasonably and in good faith believed, based on my husband’s claim of and then his 10 ½ year of behavior since, he had dismissed his fourth Marin divorce filing and we are still married, and I and my husband continue to act such, married, through a series of behaviors and conduct for the next 10 ½ years. My husband admits his July 1996 reconciliation with me. We had planned for me to move back to Marin, in with my husband at our Marin home when I retire, and then start selling our Reno properties. Divorce is not a handy vehicle for the summary disposal of old and used wives. Which is what my husband is now smugly alleging he did July 12, 1996, divorce me, while talking outside the other side of his mouth, his admission that he reconciled his marriage with me in July 1996. So now, several years later I’m suddenly the old and used 'former' wife, and an 'enraged' one at that according to my husband.'

One attorney suggested off-the-record Morgan file bankruptcy. "Aside from the community-property, quasi-community property or partnership fiduciary duties owed by Jim to Morgan, all legally valid arguments of Jim's culpability, Morgan has transferred monies to Jim over the years, relying on Jim's several representations, several of which he has admitted in the courts, so Morgan, therefore reasonable believed in good faith they had a relationship and future, now to her detriment. That's promissory estoppel. That puts Jim with per se unclean hands and per se intentional fraud. According to the court papers, the debt on the Reno properties is around $1.5. There are also those two $10,000 checks Morgan recently gave to Jim that exposed Jim's double-life. The Reno properties are owned by Jim and Morgan via their Nevada Living Trust. The bankruptcy trustee will go after Jim and collect from him for those monies as Jim clearly has fraudulently induced Morgan with his several year history of unclean hands into transferring them to him and used them to further fund his STRS (State Teachers Retirement account), his debt free ownership of his home in Novato, and gave money to his California wife. The normal exemption veil for Jim's retirement and home is pierced for Jim's fraud. Jim's rather heinous trail of intentional fraud forces any bankruptcy trustee to collect from him to pay off the creditors on those five Reno houses. Somewhere down the road I also anticipate Morgan's attorney will file an Abuse of Process against Jim and his attorney and collect big as his libel action and default restraining order against her are such shocking misuses of the legal system. They are what forces Morgan into bankruptcy."

A retired San Francisco attorney also commented off-the-record on this case. He says he rapidly heard about this case through the grapevine of the legal community as well as the Bay Area cross-dressing support groups of which he is an anonymous member. 'As a closeted transvestite now in my fifth marriage to another wife who doesn’t know, and although I deliberately chose to live in a locale that should be socially accepting, sadly, it’s just not true. I know of many heterosexual men in prominent positions who cross-dress, who are married and their wives do not know. Few, if any, women are happy with their man’s transvestite behavior and are definitely not happy with any scenario involving their husband as a transvestite. Olson and his California wife (who obviously didn’t know since Olson is fighting against it) live in a very narrow biased world subject to the pressures of exposure and embarrassment at now being outed in his double life. Even Olson’s attorney seems to have a righteous problem with it, writing mentally disturbed and a repugnant person of dubious moral character to describe Olson. Olson and his Nevada wife, who has known him for 25 years, and has adapted beyond the norm of most wives in her acceptance of him, only exists in Nevada. That’s a double life.'

My Dad hates that I want to grow up to be a Marin County, California cross-dressing teacher with two wives. One in Reno, Nevada who ties me up and forces me to have sex with her. The other wife is the hoity-toity Marin career wife who brings home the big bucks so we can live in the most affluent county on the planet while I teach ballroom dancing one night a week. My own Big Love and Crazy Love going. Sounds real good to me. It works for Burt & Linda!! It works for ole Joey and Amy! And then if I have any energy left, I'll troll a student or two a year, interviewing them for Wife #3 position. And California has that Confidential Marriage Certificate! Perfect.

I also had heard about this case through the grapevine. As an very newby attorney, I see a Catch-22. Bigamy gets him out of the homeowners insurance fraud and forgery felonies. While the homeowners insurance fraud and forgery get him out of the bigamy felony. CALIFORNIA CODES PENAL CODE SECTION 281-289.6 281. (a) Every person having a husband or wife living, who marries any other person, except in the cases specified in Section 282, is guilty of bigamy. (b) Upon a trial for bigamy, it is not necessary to prove either of the marriages by the register, certificate, or other record evidence thereof, but the marriages may be proved by evidence which is admissible to prove a marriage in other cases; and when the second marriage took place out of this state, proof of that fact, accompanied with proof of cohabitation thereafter in this state, is sufficient to sustain the charge. 283. Bigamy is punishable by a fine not exceeding ten thousand dollars ($10,000) or by imprisonment in a county jail not exceeding one year or in the state prison. 284. Every person who knowingly and willfully marries the husband or wife of another, in any case in which such husband or wife would be punishable under the provisions of this chapter, is punishable by fine not less than five thousand dollars ($5,000), or by imprisonment in the state prison. CALIFORNIA CODES PENAL CODE SECTION 548-551 550. (b) It is unlawful to do, or to knowingly assist or conspire with any person to do, any of the following: (1) Present or cause to be presented any written or oral statement as part of, or in support of or opposition to, a claim for payment or other benefit pursuant to an insurance policy, knowing that the statement contains any false or misleading information concerning any material fact. (2) Prepare or make any written or oral statement that is intended to be presented to any insurer or any insurance claimant in connection with, or in support of or opposition to, any claim or payment or other benefit pursuant to an insurance policy, knowing that the statement contains any false or misleading information concerning any material fact. (3) Conceal, or knowingly fail to disclose the occurrence of, an event that affects any person's initial or continued right or entitlement to any insurance benefit or payment, or the amount of any benefit or payment to which the person is entitled. (4) Prepare or make any written or oral statement, intended to be presented to any insurer or producer for the purpose of obtaining a motor vehicle insurance policy, that the person to be the insured resides or is domiciled in this state when, in fact, that person resides or is domiciled in a state other than this state. (c) (1) Every person who violates paragraph (1), (2), (3), (4), or (5) of subdivision (a) is guilty of a felony punishable by imprisonment in the state prison for two, three, or five years, and by a fine not exceeding fifty thousand dollars ($50,000), or double the amount of the fraud, whichever is greater.

As I divisar this professionally and personally fascinating case, many thoughts arrive. Talismans are scattered throughout the court papers. A sure sign of the weakness of an argument is the number of rhetorical tricks and legal fallacies it contains. Olson's diatribe in both court's papers is a catalog of easily recognizable fallacies all too numerous to cite: e.g. the ad hominem attacks, the emotional appeals, and the red herrings. All ameteurish attempts to gain the upper hand, to manipulate. He gives maybe two true impressions (he reconciled, he executed the trust) and then a multitude of false ones to make up his pointillism attack. The court papers have plenty of material to chew on and wrench into a settlement, but instead, Olson is like a character inventing himself along the way, building even more drama, fracturing into so many side issues that have nothing to do with the reality of what's really going on. That division - between his world as it is (his California wife) and the world as he imagines it (his Nevada wife), is what gives this case such poignancy. As an also closeted cross-dresser married to a woman who also doesn't know, rather than close this gap between us, I have found my marriage, my only one and relationship so far, unraveling from my secret. I heard about this case from my cd support group. We're drawn to it like a moth to flame. We talk about how our wives can feel so close to us and yet are so intangible. We wonder what it would be like to live two lives like here. Or even one with a wife such as Alexandra. Or go the route of Larry. Many of us are envious. Such gusts of moods and atmosphere. It's escapism is intoxicating. Written by a woman, but no comments yet from women?

My wife is still talking about this story. Now with Big Love (and Crazy Love) so popular, she compares me to him and it and I’m still not measuring up!! I'm still protesting to my wife she’s my only wife at the moment, but no, she wants to know what this guy's doing that he’s so connected to what two women want that he’s married to both of them that I am missing in connecting to her!! Does she want me to crossdress?! No, she wants me to connect as this guy and Big Love does! What!! By God, they’re more intrigued by how he’s connected so well with two women for so long!! Obviously he has” listened” to both of his wives my wife berates me. They admire this clown!!! Not for the bigamy, but for being so successful at “connecting” with two women for so long, which is why they love Big Love. How, and why my wife now harrases me, can’t I connect to my one wife!? Give me a beer and let me watch the game as I see a fourth divorce rapidly coming down the track. Somebody knock this crazy emotionally screwed up bastard up side the head, force him to be manly by drinking beer, watching the game, give up that sissy dancing, stop making the rest of us males look emotionally inadequate in the eyes of our one at a time wives, and get Big Love off the air! Now my son wants in on the action.

I believe the reason no women have commented is that we really hate the idea of a man, especially our man, as a cd. I didn't when I found out about my master teacher. It's discovery is a very violent knee-jerk to their gonads from us. I was following this case when I surfed into Ed's Amy and Joey article. My comment married this case and grew into this article.

I have a Goggle Alert for Barber. When I opened this Alert up, I discovered a very clever use and how appropriate use of it. The author must have some musical knowledge or was just very lucky. A play in five acts by British playwright Richard Brinsley Sheridan, The School for Scandal was first produced at the Drury Lane Theatre, London, in 1777. With its spirited ridicule of affectation and pretentiousness, it is considered by many to be the finest comedy of manners in the English language. The play's action centers around scandalmongers who frequent Lady Sneerwell's house and delight in spreading malicious gossip. In the play, Charles Surface is an extravagant but good-hearted young man. His brother, Joseph, supposedly more respectable, is shown to be a conniving schemer who courts Lady Teazle, the young wife of a wealthy old nobleman. Sir Oliver Surface, the brothers' uncle, disguises himself to determine which of his nephews he will choose as his heir. Joseph is exposed as a hypocrite, and Charles triumphs, winning both fortune and true love. Samuel Barber's overture to The School for Scandal, Op. 5, was the composer's first composition for full orchestra. It was completed in 1931 and first performed 30. august 1933. It lasts around 8 min. The title refers to the comedy The School for Scandal written by Richard Brinsley Sheridan and the overture was by Barber intended to reflect the spirit of the play. It was written for paired wood-winds, 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, triangle, bass drum, cymbals, bells, celesta, harp and strings. It is characterized by orchestral brilliance and a number of shifts in tempo and dynamics. The overture helped to establish Barber's national reputation and became in the 1950'es a more regular part of the repertoire of American orchestras. It won the Bearns Prize of Columbia University in 1933. An arrangement for concert band has been made by Frank M. Hudson. As an aside, I would like to comment on the lack of responses from women. As a woman, a young woman, I also am not thrilled with the idea of my boyfriend or husband or even my teacher dressing up in my clothes and makeup! Yeck!!

Living Out Loud I also heard about this case. I find it personally morbid and fascinating. The author did make the connection between Joey and Amy, and Burt and Linda, both in the same realm. I also wonder what it would be like to do some of the things the author wrote about that these people have done and are doing. To take emotion to beyond the limit of what I know and feel, which frankly, is damn boring compared to the emotions I read about in these others who are all Living Out Loud. I'm also envious. What would it feel like for a me to put on woman's clothes and make-up? What would it feel like to marry someone who had maimed you? What would it feel like to go back and bang someone who had shot your wife? What would it feel like to file to divorce your wife four times and reconcile all four times? What would it be like to feel that level of emotion? Olson has some major legal problems as Alexandra has provided Defenses in the court's papers to his way way out of proportion claim of Defamation. That means a Malicious Prosecution counter-suit. You can assert that the remarks never happened or you were not involved in the discussion or writing. Outside of that, there are three main defenses to a defamation claim: (1) The first is that the statement was privileged, and so must be held in strict confidence. Certain professions (doctors, lawyers, psychologists), or individuals (chiefly your spouse) may maintain a privilege; and if any non-privileged third party was part of the communication, the privilege is broken. Employees of a professional are included to the extent that you needed to use them to contact the professional. Don't tell your deepest, darkest secret to your attorney's secretary and expect to maintain the privilege. (2) The second defense is that the statement is true, for "truth is an absolute defense." Establishing the truth is the single most effective defense that can be made. If a truthful remark hurts, is embarrassing, or subjects you to ridicule, there is little you can do. Unless the remark is false, you do not have a valid claim. (3) The third defense is that the statement was an opinion, not an assertion of a fact. This depends on the words used. There's a world of difference between saying "I think he's a crook," and "He's a crook." However, a third party may pass on the message without quoting "I think," and that can weaken the opinion defense. To find out your best options, consult an experienced libel and slander attorney in your area. The second defense is claiming, and proving, that the statement is true, for "truth is an absolute defense". The third defense is claiming, and proving, that the statement was an opinion, not an assertion of a fact. Since this last defense is only as good as the weakest or worst, but still reasonable, misinterpretation, it's not one you really want to rely on. There's a world of difference between saying "I think he's a crook," and "he's a crook". Especially if a third party might inadvertently leave out the first two words when passing your message on. There's the Un Clean Hands Defense: Unclean hands, sometimes clean hands doctrine, is an equitable defense in which the defendant argues that the plaintiff is not entitled to obtain an equitable remedy on account of the fact that the plaintiff is acting unethically or has acted in bad faith with respect to the subject of the complaint—that is, with "unclean hands." The defendant has the burden of proof to show the plaintiff is not acting in good faith. The doctrine is often stated as "those seeking equity must do equity" or "equity must come with clean hands". A defendant's unclean hands can also be claimed and proven by the plaintiff to prevent that defendant from asserting equitable affirmative defenses and claiming other equitable remedies. In other words, 'unclean hands' can be used offensively by the plaintiff as well as defensively by the defendant. Historically, the doctrine of unclean hands can be traced as far back as the Fourth Lateran Council. And of course, the person claiming defamation has to have demonstratable and proven damages, usually they also have to be significant. Olson has claimed none as he has none. Come on - no way does a retired music school teacher who lived on a tiny boat in Sausalito and now a trailer in Novato who now teaches ballroom dancing one night a week at the Novato rec center have a million dollars in damages. His attorney is probably going to end up getting sanctioned as well as all the evidence for the truth is already in the court's papers as well as the use of the legal harrasment in filing this frivilious defamation lawsuit to begin with. As well as filing for a marital status in a civil court! No wonder Alexandra prevailed on that one. Olson and his attorney are probably now fervently praying Alexandra doesn't file bankruptcy as that is large damages for her as they force her in to it.

What I don’t like is legally sanctioned harassment. I also don’t like legally sanctioned terrorism. I abhor legally sanctioned lying. This is why I hate the $54 million pair of pants lawsuit. This is why I also hate this $1.5 million dollar Marin County cross dresser lawsuit. The $54 million pair of pants gave rise to global outrage and demands again for litigation reform. Paul Rothstein, a Georgetown University law professor, said "This case was giving American justice a black eye around the world, and it was all the more upsetting because it was a judge and lawyer who were bringing the suit." Then Rothstein said after the court ruled that the ruling "restores one's confidence in the legal system." No, it hasn’t. Yeah, a judge ruled in favor of the South Korean dry cleaner who was sued by a wacko for $54 million over an alleged missing pair of pants. Yeah, this Judge Bartnoff ordered said wacko; one administrative law Judge Pearson, to pay the court costs of the Korean dry cleaner defendants. According to the defendant' attorney, Chris Manning, the fees were a bit more than $1,000. But what about the $100,000 plus in attorney fees?! A motion to recover the attorney fees will be considered later according to the papers. So tell, me, how does that "restore one's confidence in the legal system"? The defendants’ attorney, said "Judge Bartnoff has spoken loudly in suggesting that, while consumers should be protected, abusive lawsuits like this will not be tolerated," Manning said in a statement. "Judge Bartnoff has chosen commonsense and reasonableness over irrationality and unbridled venom." Ya think! These types of lawsuits are legal terrorism. They are successfully used by bullies who lie to abuse weaker defendants. I don’t care that the College of Marin Band Director cross dresses, is a bigamist, did homeowners insurance fraud with the Reno houses, and forged his Nevada wife’s name on California paperwork. Nobody I know really cares beyond the humor value of it. Obviously the Marin County sheriff, police, DA and College of Marin police don’t care either since no ones arrested or prosecuted this wacko for all this! What I and others I’ve spoken about care about, is his use of what the wacko did in the $54 million pair of pants. This James Olson is another wacko successfully abusing the legal system with an equally wacko and damaging to the defendant $1.5 million dollar lawsuit he repeatedly lied in. His court papers read like a poorly written soap opera. They do have a lot of humorous moments, most of them for Olson’s sheer chutzpah and stupidity during his double life, like the Reno homeowners insurance, forging his Reno wife’s name on San Rafael papers, and brazenness after caught, like filing the lawsuits against his Reno wife. However, I’m certain, that this defendant feels just the same way the Korean dry cleaners’ owners did when they said “the trial exacted an enormous financial and emotional toll on them and exposed them to widespread ridicule. “ The owners of the Korean Dry Cleaners should get their $100,000 plus in attorney fees back. The wacko administrative law judge who sued them, should be ordered to also pay an amount equal to their attorney fees and costs, serve 30 days in jail, and get six years probation as his punishment. Same for this wacko band director. So should his attorney, a cold-blooded gun for hire. He the same as the three thugs Crazy Love’s Burt Pagich hired to throw lye in the face of Linda when she found out about his double life and also dumped him. That sort of punishment will hold these legal terrorists accountable for when they file such frivolous lawsuits. Others will then think twice before abusing the court system for such evil and expensive attacks.

Kytanna, yes, I do have musical training. Carole, this story is in the public court records in Marin County as well as Reno, Nevada. Craig, I wish I'd thought of your humorous approach first! Very well done. Kent, yeah, this case, the $54m pair of pants' case, and others equally as outrageous, and costly and damaging to the innocent defendants, just reveals the dark secret of the legal system. That secret is that these plaintiff's attorneys are the equalivent of hiring a gunslinging killer to terrorize the defendant. I wished I'd first caught that analogy you drew that these plaintiff's attorneys are also the equivalent of Crazy Love’s Burt Pagich hiring the three thugs to throw lye in Linda's face after she found out Pagich was married and dumped him. As that is the equivalent of what Jim did in retaliation when he filed in Marin his $1.5m suit against Morgan right after Morgan filed for the Reno divorce from him after she was made aware of his double life.

This is one very interesting legal case! Let me see if I got this straight. He marries with a California Confidential Marriage Certificate. He files to divorce her four times in Marin, the first like 30 days after the confidential marriage. He admits he reconciled all four times with her. She moves to Reno what 12 years ago. He admits he executed a Nevada Living Trust with her. He forges her married name in San Rafael when he bought a car there as a surprise for her. She recently files to divorce him in Reno after a phone call he had died but he's not dead, just maybe married to someone else in Marin In retaliation, he does the same thing Burt Pagich did, hires thugs. In Burt's case, it was hire the thugs to throw lye in Linda's face after she found out he was married and she dumped him. In this guy's case, his thugs threw in her face a million and a half lawsuit with a request for marital determination and a restraining order. Isn't Reno like 200 plus miles from Marin?

After King George's usual depressing speech this morning, I needed a good laugh. And this article and its comments delivers. He wants a civil court to make his marital determination with her? Among many other things mentioned, most damning is the homeowners insurance (if he didn't have an insurable interest, that's a felony), he obviously thought he was her husband, or why bother to ask the court. But a civil court? Four witnesses testified they saw and heard him walking, talking and acting like he was her husband in Reno for eleven years. He wants a restraining order when she lives more than 200 miles away? Yet he admits he reconciled and he was driving those miles every other weekend, holidays and summers for several years. A startling million and half in damages for a guy who lives in a trailer? And on and on and on and on and on and on. It reads beyond a soap opera. It's more like high opera. Craig B. nailed it!

Outrageous Conduct Under Any Definition Comments about those Marin educators lead some very interesting lives Questions to Ms Mary Jane Burke The Demonization of The Victim This story disturbs me on many levels. Sexual deviants and freaks is the Marin reputation which is why I choose not to live there nor would I support my child marrying someone from there. First thing that disturbs me about this story is the number of Marin educators involved in these troubling behaviors. This guy is just another in a long line of Marin educators involved in scandals. Several scandals over several years. They feed off each other knowing they have, can and will continue to get away with it. Probably why these educators choose to live in Marin. Why is that Ms. Mary Jane Burke? When is Ms. Burke going to be held accountable for not nipping this continuing and alarming conduct of her educators in the bud? Marin County educator scandals where the victims in each were then legally and brutally terrorized by the plaintiff’s attorney. Second, the frightening comments I read from what is obviously young men who want to grow up to be educators like this guy!? Third, why hasn’t this guy been arrested? When are the Marin police and District Attorney going to be held accountable for not nipping his illegal actions in the bud? His history of: filing four divorces from her, filing false police reports against her, forgery of her married name to him, bigamy, insurance fraud, and his student teacher’s previous charges. Fourth, his use of scathing legal tantrums: his four divorce filings from his wife, now libel charges against her and a restraining order against her are outrageous and unethical and among others things, shocks my moral sense, which Marin lacks. Nothing has been authenticated of the litany he expouses she did while he volunteers in the public court records his crossdressing. No one cares All it’s done has made me want to never have my children being taught by someone this obviously mentally and emotionally unstable, and who takes such pride in it. It’s like he gets off on it. Like he has a need to make his private life public. His need to Live Out Loud more than his crossdressing is what bothers me. Fifth, reading the article’s analysis of crossdressing with its evolution of a second personality to support the crossdressing disturbed me even further. It explains a lot. Sixth, when are the Marin police and District Attorney going to hold this guy accountable for contempt charges and his now obvious ploys at obstruction of justice? Come on, his out and out lying about those two $10,000 checks to get a restraining order against someone who lives 200 miles away from who sent him that $20,000. A someone who he’s admitted: a) he reconciled with in all of his four divorce filings from her, b) he executed a Nevada Living Trust with her that he’s somehow conveniently left in place through today, and c) he drove those 200 miles each way to be with her on a very regular basis for 12 years while he had homeowners insurance on their Reno properties as her husband. A someone who four witnesses testify in Reno documenting further his lies. I know of no one who recently sends $20,000 to the one who dumped them 5 years ago as this guy now lies he did to her since somehow he also claims he’s remarried during this same timeframe he was holding himself out as her husband in Reno. That’s a double life, and a very precarious one at that. It was just a matter of time before he was caught. Which just fuels his desire and need to Live Out Loud. There is a manifest injustice being perpetuated by him. Seventh, what does he think he is, a Leonard Bernstein or Larry Wachowski knock-off? Or in musical terms, a cover of them? For them and him, negative publicity is better than no publicity. The comics are being too kind to him in their poking fun at him. Eighth, did he use similar ploys in his student teacher scandal? What was the outcome of her charges Ms. Burke? Wasn’t his student teacher from Marin’s Dominican College where you are from Ms. Burke? What about Marin’s valued sisterhood Ms. Burke? How come this guy wasn’t fired then Ms. Burke? What did happen to his student teacher Miss Cindy Wood Ms. Burke? How come your Marin educators are a continuing problem Ms. Burke? What is the outcome of Craig Benedict Lee misconduct Ms. Burke? That kiddie porn on his computer didn’t just Harry Potter style magically appear there. Mr. Lee and this guy, among other things, are domestic violence cases. When is Ms Burke going to address this moral laxness epidemic in her educators?

I may be young but there sure seems to be a lot of him bashing here. Yeah, I poke fun at him, who wouldn't with htis kind of material? I have no sympathy for either of them. She's not operating on all 8 cylinders either. And you can't blame the fact she's 10 years younger than him. There came a moment when she was a willing participant. She stayed with him for 26 years although she knew he's a crossdresser (who cares?), he divorced her 4 times and after his version of reconciling the 4th time with her to drive to Reno for 12 years to see her "every other weekend, summers and holidays" around his Marin teaching schedule. This guy is selfish, self-serving, a flip-flopper, arrogant and obviously very closeted about his fetishes. While she, portrayed as a domintrix, really just played second fiddle to his fetishes. Ironic or poetic? In the bondage world, which I am exploring that I may have an interest in, (as well as crossdressing) it is the one with the bondage fetish who controls. We do it via up-front communication if we are out with our bondage desire/fetish, or via passive aggressive such as this guy. His perfect storm for a double life. After she found out about his crossdressing and bondage, she knew what to expect from him and why. After his 2nd divorce filing, she knew he was using divorce to control their relationship. Come on, him the innocent victim and her the lamebrained predator. By his 4th divorce from her, when he shows up again to reconcile with her, she now is a very knowedgeable player in his world where he just kept upping the ante to orchestrate their pasions. I also have a sneaking envy. They're both, like Burt and linda, Joey and Amy, Richard and Elizabeth, Frank and Ava, dumber than dumb Slaves To Love.

"Power is the inflicting of pain and humiliation. Power is tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing. Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating?" - George Orwell, 1984 Cindy's article is another example of America's cultural shift to violence in sex, especailly domestic violence, and torture porn and terrorist lawyers in their escalating demonization of the victim, especailly the wife/girlfriend/significant other. It's a deliberate, conscious choice by the perpetuator. Here the Reno wife, and probably the Marin wife, are obviously the victims. Cindy's article is amazing on many levels where improbabilities abound. Although the story is far from light and irreverent it is rather wordy and needed editing. I would like to see someone like Ed do the followup. David Edelstein in New York Magazine wrote "Fear supplants empathy and makes us all potential torturers, doesn't it? Post 9-11, we've engaged in a national debate about the morality of torture." In Orwells' 1984, the "thought criminal" Winston Smith's torturer syas "Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a picture of a boot stamping on a human face forever." Once Upon A Time in America the Geneva Convention guranteed that "no physical or mental torture, nor any other form of coercion, may be inflicted on prisoners of war to secure from them information of any kind whatsoever." This story is a tragic example of mental torture via legal terorism to secure information and, incidently, to shut down a whistle blower, the wife with now his boot on her face. The comments do add another dimension to the article.

Make any statement that is so true that it has been staring us in the face all of our lives, and the whole world will rise up and passionately contradict you. If you don't withdraw and apologize, it will be the worse for you. But just tell a thundering silly lie, and a murmur of pleased assent will hum up from every quarter of the globe. — George Bernard Shaw In today's world of fear and conformity, the only sin worse than criticizing the latest fashion or fad is being proven absolutely and incontrovertibly correct in that criticism. There are few more unpleasant sights than the outraged bigotry of those who most stridently demand absolute tolerance for their own beliefs and activities. Where can I sign up to meet a woman who will let me get away with what she has him? Any "reasonable expection of privacy" she may have had is forever shot as yes, she must forever bear the onerous burden of having been right. Not that intellectual honesty has ever been a hallmark of the judiciary; but no sane person can deny that,logically, Kent J, is right on the money in his analysis of these lovebirds with a jones for each other- a simple and non-pathological explanation for a very strong attraction for each other — for better or for worse. Why shouldn't she be entitled to respect? How can any court deny that same respect to her relationship with him? Those trashing him (and her) are actually looking forward to all of these new freedoms, such as two wives, but won't admit it for fear of rousing the general public to backlash. The shameful truth is that the flap is not about his two wives at the same time at all. It's about his fear of government interference in something that should be between consenting adults (whatever their numbers). One article claimed 1,049 specific benefits conferred on married couples by federal and state laws — a telling indictment both of illicit government intervention in private affairs and the massive scope of the federal Leviathan.

Charles, Jr: Yes, that is my comment. Let's do the Meet & Greet for your offer of Husband #3. Parker: Yes she is a whistle-blower. Something I have too much unfortunate up front and personal knowledge of. Call me a ranter. Perhaps it's fueled by the late, great sitcom's Sergeant Schulz of Hogan's Heroes: "I See Nothing." Which the Marin County School District has adopted as their motto for these Marin County educator scandals. There is a lot to get heated about regarding Mr. Olson (and these other Marin educators). How much is too much to sacrifice for love? Mr. Olson is plain old-fashioned, passive-aggresive pouting. The two Mrs. Olson's were so hypnotized by the call of the aisle that they couldn't be bothered to listen to exactly what Mr. Olson was really saying to them. "Hi Honey, I'm home, in your clothes." They should both put in free telephone calls to the National Domestic Violence Hotline (ndvh.org 800/799-safe) to hear the difference between domestic violence and domestic bliss - preferably before Mr. Olson tires of practicing his fast ball on their emotions, etc. I recall something from several years ago about medical records at Marin General Hospital and the Sausalito Police about Morgan Olson's broken wrist and teeth. I remmeber I read it then in the public records of one of Mr Olson's several divorces from Morgan Olson. Both of the Mrs Olson's should have been outta there a long time ago. Like when Mr. Olson suggested they give up their dreams to be closer to his kitchen to feed his fat tummy and incidently, his fat ego. In fact, he just chained each to his stove. He's the guy who found out what made each Mrs Olson happy, then pushed each to stop doing it. I understand the Nevada Mrs Olson to this day regrets not getting her graduate degree. The California Mrs Olson is at that certain age when the concept of a flawless "Mr Perfect" coming into her life starts to wear thin on her, and it became tempting for her to toss a wedding ring at any half-heterosexual male who isn't doing prison time. Pronouncing a guy "the only man I ever want to marry" makes both Mrs Olsons prone to weed out the inconvenient facts that marrying Mr Olson is about the dumbest thing they could do. Giving up what makes them happy, which is what Mr Olson does with his wives, is just plain stupid. Denying access to each of the Mrs Olson's dreams is one of the strongest weapons Mr Olson has against each of them, or for that matter, any of the females in his life, past and present. The Mrs Olsons need to repeatedly practice this mantra: "yeah, though I walk through the Valley of Passive-Aggresive Jim Olson Control, I shall not fear his Evil." Because Mr Olson not only dangerous but also dense. The comments are very interesting.

On the other hand, he's done it more than a few times, he keeps a stash of women's clothes with a few different outfits, and he passes as a girl so well that he gets hit on by guys. DC Comics might disagree with me, but if the high heel fits... check it out. http://www.tgfa.org/comics/jimmy_olsen/jimmy_olsen.htm

Good Luck Charles, Jr. Here's another recent Marin County school issue: Novato Man Delays Plea Entry On Child Porn Charges SAN RAFAEL, Calif. -- A Novato man delayed entering a plea in Marin County Superior Court on Monday to a 25-count child pornography possession complaint. Deputy District Attorney Linda Witong said Remsen McGinnis Benedict 52, of Novato, waived his right to a speedy preliminary hearing and will be arraigned Aug. 28. Investigators found 25 representative samples of child pornography on Benedict's computers that are the basis of the complaint, Witong said. Benedict, who was a school bus driver with the Novato Unified School District and a den leader of Cub Scout pack 186 in Novato, remains in the Marin County jail under $500,000 bail. Novato police Lt. Jim Laveroni said Benedict was arrested at his Spinosa Way home Wednesday night. The $500,000 bail enhancement is because of "the nature and quantity of the images seized and his access to children," Laveroni said. Police took four computers from Benedict's residence, Laveroni said. The investigation began when police received an e-mail on July 26 from the Novato Advance newspaper about a corporate sex offenders Web site that contained biographical information about Benedict and his photograph. The Web site identified Benedict as a school bus driver with the Novato school district and a pack leader with the Boy Scouts and it contained postings allegedly by Benedict, also known as "Wolfman", that reveal his preference for boys. Novato police said the school district and the Marin Council of the Boy Scouts of America also received e-mails with the link to the corporate sex offenders Web site. Mike Dybeck, executive director of the Marin Council of the Boy Scouts of America, said Benedict was a den leader for the past couple years at the "Bear" level of the Cub Scouts but his membership and registration have been revoked. Benedict has a son in the same Cub Scout's den and he worked with scouts in the third grade, Dybeck said.

Can't Keep Their Pants Up Marin County and its schools. A self-vaunted era, time and place in which the Marin County schools have floated for years from scandal to turmoil and back, barely above moral peril all the while. There’s a certain logic to Ms. Burke hoping news that the county's enduring philosophical beacon for sexual abusers might fade quietly away. Marin County school's recruiting strategies seem centered around an appeal that by attending them, students will join a higher moral purpose. In a pattern that was to often repeat itself, Marin educator's seemingly incompatible dual lives pose the kind of intellectual puzzle that, were the topic anything other than their own criminal sexual history, the schools would relish discoursing over. He never told me about his tormenting flaw, even though I asked him many times. I knew he was hiding something. But I guess he knew I wouldn't be able to handle knowing what it was. Either that, or he knew he wouldn't be able to handle the abrupt lifestyle change that accompanies being exposed as a sexual predator, an extraordinary irony for Marin County's academia's left-wing social conscience. The secret criminal life of the Marin educators has stunned Ms. Burke into taking care of it. And take care of it the Marin schools did, orchestrating stunning cover-ups that allowed the Marin educators to expand their sexual pedagogical hunts into legend despite repeated allegations of sexual abuse. Sexual predators have such low self-esteem that they prey to compensate with a sense of grandiosity. They need to control women and children, to keep secrets and keep autonomy so no one knows what’s going on inside of them. There is underlying insecurity. They have a sense of invincibility that they can get away with this. They think they can get away with anything. Or they develop multiple personalities as Cindy’s article in San Francisco Broowaha, Now you call it madness, but I call it love, so aptly covered.

I just read Ed's Joey and Amy article. I didn't know Larry (Matrix) is a crossdresser. Explains a LOT about the movies though. Isn't Pres candidate Rudy also? My envy for hot is right out there. Love is ok. Hot is additive once you've had it. I've only had it with one lady. Since then I spend every moment wanting it again. I couldn't live with her, but couldn't live without her. Sex with her left its brand on me. It stripped away every mask of inhibition I had. I had to have her in every way in every location no matter what the cost. Every lady I've been with since I have to fantasize to get off that it's her. So you go Joey and Amy, and Jim and Morgan, get it while you can. You're consenting adults. Abit wacko albeit, but I understand.

I heard about this story in the San Francisco Broowaha from the ballroom dance community. I want to add my comments from a different perspective. I first met Jim and Morgan Olson in September 1995 in Reno. I met them through ballroom dancing. Over the next 11 years I often saw them at various dances and dance events in Nevada, California and Oregon. I saw them a few times at the Metronome when Jim was crossdressed. Jim’s crossdressing was common knowledge but considered no big deal. Morgan seemed not thrilled with it, but tolerant. Jim always represented himself as Morgan’s husband, wore a wedding ring, and bragged about all the houses they owned in Reno. Although he always made it a point to let us know that they also had a home in Marin County, California that Morgan would be moving back to when she decided to retire, leaving what he repeatedly portrayed as little old Reno for much more desirable Marin. Morgan, well Morgan, is a gracious lady that I, and every guy dancer I know, has a crush on. She is an excellent ballroom dancer, an above average country-western dancer, a classy dresser, smart, giving of her time in dance practice, and remarkably, solidly in love with Jim. She built a dance floor and train room for him in their Reno home. A dance floor that many of us practiced on. Jim is a legend in his own mind, not being the dancer he thinks he is. The talk among the lady dancers is that they don’t like dancing with him as he dances to the mirror to watch himself rather than for the pleasure of dancing with them. A cardinal sin in ballroom dancing as the man is the frame and the lady is the picture. It is the man’s job to show off the lady, not himself. The part of the story about the separate personalities made a lot of sense as I saw that in Jim many times. So does the narcissism, that I and others, especially the ladies, also saw in Jim. The last time I saw Jim and Morgan was in September 2006 doing what I’d always seen them do, ballroom dancing together. Since then, I have seen neither one of them. So this story saddened me when it was recently brought to my attention. He sure took her for a ride. A ride for her now into hell and from I now hear, her bankruptcy and her failing health. A very sad ending for a lady guilty only of love. Why hasn’t Jim been arrested for homeowners insurance fraud and forging Morgan’s signature since he now claims they weren’t and aren’t married?

On top of everything else, he was a live-a-board?! He's a ballroom dancer!? This guy should be locked up for not only his lies, perjury but that he is also a bullying wacko. I saw nothing in the article to indicate she, Morgan, was a consenting adult to all of this. What I saw was repeated deception on his, Jim's part. He is just an older man who abused a younger woman and is now succesfully demonizing her, his victim. Why isn't he arrested? Isn't it obvious? He's is upscale Marin and she's in low-life, by Marin's standards, Reno. There's no way the Marin Sheriff, or any police in Marin or the Marin DA, will lock him up. They'd have to lock the whole damn county up then for the same reasons. It's not only the Marin educators who Can't Keep Their Pants Up, it's the rest of the whole damn overly liberal self-absorbed county with its plethora of sexual predators. No wonder she left.

More Marin educators who can't keep their pants up. CORTE MADERA, Calif., Aug. 25, 2007 - A former Marin County elementary school teacher has pleaded not guilty to charges that she had sex with two teenage boys during drunken encounters at her friend's house. 41-year-old Amy Lee Kelly of Benicia Kelly taught at Bacich Elementary School in Kentfield for 11 years until leaving last year. She is free on bail and is due back in court next month. According to court documents, the alleged encounters took place in October last year after Kelly became drunk at her friend's house in Corte Madera and met the two 15-year-old boys. The Redwood High School students were visiting Kelly's friend's daughter and had also been drinking. Kelly's attorney could not be reached for comment today. Prosecutors say Kelly could be sentenced to more than four years in prison and be required to register as a sex offender if convicted of the charges. Information from: Marin Independent Journal

Where's the comments from ladies? Boxers, briefs or panties?! I know Jim and Morgan from ballroom dancing. I also first met them in September 1995 in Reno. I saw them out and about in Reno a least a half a dozen times a month. Jim always presented himself as Morgan's husband. They wore wedding rings, lived together, Jim talked about the various Reno and Marin properties they owned, they were very much in love for the 11 years I knew them as a couple in Reno. They celebrated several of their Valentine's Day anniversaries at the Reno ballrooms. I remember Jim liked to joke how it took him 9 years to get Morgan to marry him during a visit to The Lake February 1991. They also celebrated most Christmas' and New Years' at the Reno ballrooms. Jim organized private Reno dance parties for their birthdays. I haven't seen either of them for a year now. I'd heard about all this legal and her failing health stuff from other dancers. I also find it all very sad for Morgan. Jim' outing of his double life doesn't surprise me. I always felt he is a sexual predator. He crossdressed in the Bay Area but not Reno. He always represented he had two lives. His Marin life he was so proud of and his Reno life he tolerated solely for Morgan I remember when Jim bought that car for Morgan in Marin and brought it to Reno as a surprise for her as he showed it off to everyone. He mentioned signing her name to buy the car as Morgan rarely drove after the auto accident she was so severely injured in. Jim' crossdresing at the San Francisco Bay Area ballrooms was common knowledge but since Morgan tolerated it we did also. Same for the common knowledge about Jim's leather and vinyl fetishes and the bondage. I never saw him crossdresed at the Reno ballrooms. I never enjoyed dancing with him. The author's (Cindy) comments about the narcisism and mirror obession is exactly what I experienced with Jim. I disliked dancing with him as he danced to watch himself in the mirror rather than for the pleasure of dancing with me. Jim is very self-centered. As well as immature. Other lady dancers had repeatedly made these same observation of Jim. He is very look down his nose at us Reno dancers and Jim always made it a point to let us Reno dancers know how much better the Bay Area dancing is and dancers are to his opinion of us as low-life Reno dancers and Reno ballrooms. He is snooty about his living in Marin and how he only barely tolerated Reno because Morgan had built them a home here. Morgan thrived in the lower key Reno world. I felt she was relieved to be away from the San Francisco Bay Area extremes, and she only tolerated Jim's fetishes due to her abiding love for him. She not only built Jim a large dance floor and large train room here, their Reno home looks like a late 1930's Hollywood movie set in San Francisco. Elegant, sensuous and very sexual; with glass block wall, black gloss cabinets and bar, black marble counters, black glass sinks, very large mirrors, black gloss furniture, mirrored wardrobe doors - one wall to wall, walnut floor, brushed nickel hardware, dark green/black tile, pavered patios. That is why it is so funny that it turn out Jim was all along living on a Marin boat and then a Marin trailer. Funny 'cause Jim sure touted his living in Marin County, California, wealthiest county on the planet. He had to repeatedly rub our Reno noses in that fact he was so proud of. A boat and then a trailer! Now Jim claims he and Morgan aren't married!? How does he explain his saying to us he was, the homeowners insurance in his name on the Reno properties and his forging Morgan's name when he bought that car for her? What a dangerous hypocrite Jim turned out to be! Although I disliked dancing with Jim, I understood Jim and Morgan's relationship. I had hot for and in love with from the moment my husband and I met to the day he died. It was the most bizarre, crazy, irrational, all consuming lust obsession in my life and I would not have have missed a moment of any of it. My husband felt the same way. We repeatedly separated and reconciled. I divorced him. We both married others. They divorced us when the caught us with each other. We then remarried each other. We continued to repeatedly separate and reconcile. I miss all of it. Very few people allow themselves to go that far into their emotions and the physical pleasures of sex with an adult consenting partner that you can take each other into realms of pleasure that you spend every moment afterwards thinking how much you want to be back into. It is an addictive drug.

To understand the reason the Repugnants in Marin; their courts, police, DA, etc., have not arrested Jim for the home insurance fraud, forging her name when he bought that car in Marin and the bigamy are not only about Marin's snooty attitude over Reno but also the “live boy, dead girl” rule. For the Marin courts, police and Marin DA it's not about consistency and it's not about integrity. Although I don't like Jim, on the plus side, Jim can now write two books — one about his public life and how he repeatedly screwed it up. And second, the porn version of his now outed secret double life. He should make a fortune. Let me be clear. The more I read and learn about Jim Olson, the more troubling the situation with Morgan becomes. It offends my sensibilities. He threw her under the wheels of the bus.

First, Mary Jane Burke, superintendent of Marin County Schools, said "The bottom line is we'll be providing support to the district." Too bad she doesn’t provide support to the victims of her educators. She and her educators have no consciousness of guilt. Only in their fantasy world can they have 533 pieces of conclusive evidence against them and still call themselves innocent. Their victims are stuck with this realty. Yes, Marin is The Area for The Demonization of The Victim. Second, as I have knowledge of two of the parties, Jim and Morgan, I’ve made it a point to previously not weigh in on this Olson story. I was a professional Dominatrix in San Francisco from May 1985 to August 2006 when I retired from it. It was a profession that paid for my Bachelors and Doctorate Psychology degrees. Today, I am in private practice specializing in cross-dressing men, their fetishes, Bondage and Discipline, and the women who love these men. My colleagues who also know the parties, agree that our silence has caused and continues to cause more harm to Morgan than our making some points about Mr. Olson’s another edition of exactly what’s not true. Cindy, the author, wrote an accurate analysis of cross-dressing men. I first met Mr. Olson in Spring 1985 at the Bay Area B & D clubs. From my perspective, I saw the evolution of various personas of Mr. Olson as Jim Olson, Jim, Jimmy, James, James K. Olson, and James Olson. Mr. Olson grew into a very sophisticated and obsessed cross-dresser compulsively masturbating in front of a mirror with leather, vinyl, rubber fetishes, into his bondage, and a woman in spike heels with her heels on his chest. He also was a subtle passive-aggressive manipulator, a sexual predator, with sudden, brutal vignettes cunningly buffered by his own self-importance of his role as a public educator in Marin County, which impressed him and he felt insulated him from censure. He spent years grandstanding while hiding his struggle to obtain the basic necessities of food, clothing and shelter, as he lived on a boat in Sausalito while he battled his increasing mental health and identity issues. He gave thinly veiled anecdotes that unraveled into long-repressed diatribes that I never overlooked nor underestimated. He was always alone until Spring 1992 when he showed up with a very beautiful much younger woman he introduced as Morgan, his wife. Morgan was insecure and embarrassed mentioning that she had just found out about Jim’s cross-dressing and fetishes from his student-teacher who had screamed it at her in a courtroom. I wonder if the author is the Cindy in the student-teacher Olson scandal that the Marin school district threw under the wheels of the bus. Morgan wanted an explanation for why Jim hadn’t told her about his double life sometime before in their now 10 year relationship. Her tolerance and patience was imploding rather than exploding as she felt guilty for not living up to his expectations she now accept his secrets. Her reaction was common in response to his successful control of her. Mr. Olson often boasted how he lost weight, dressed better and learned ballroom dancing once Morgan started taking care of him. The ballroom dancing is an obvious environment for a cross-dresser due to its profusion of mirrors. For the next 14 years I saw him alone, and he and Morgan together, at the clubs until I retired in August 2006. Morgan’s love for him drove her to only barely tolerate it as she grew more uncomfortable as her career took off. They spoke with me a few times about the car theft incident where Mr. Olson had filed the false police report Morgan had stolen it, as well as the other incidents Cindy wrote about in her article. After they bought the house in Reno, he regularly bragged about Morgan as his successful businesswoman wife taking the economic pressure off him. He later frequently flaunted his pride in all the rentals they owned in Reno that Morgan had bought and managed for them. I remember when he bought that very nice car in Marin as a surprise for Morgan. He had me go out to the parking lot to see it describing about how he had signed Morgan’s name so it would be a surprise for her. When the film Fight Club came out, Mr. Olson was obsessed with it. When Morgan built him the various Reno houses each with their dance floor, his train room and his B & D decor, he would say in a lazy tone Luxury isn’t cheap. That’s why I married Morgan, beautiful and an intelligent businesswoman. A long way from the single young man I first met struggling to obtain the basic necessities of food, clothing and shelter. Escapism via a double-life is a characteristic of closeted cross-dressers and B & Ds. The only wife of his I ever met with him and knew of from him was Morgan Olson. It’s my opinion that Morgan is the victim of him. Although I do believe Morgan did come to comprehend the level of his obsessions about ten years after he first brought her to the clubs, she is nine years younger than him. She has no defense to that age difference or tools to deal with it. That age difference makes her always his victim and him always her sexual predator.

Hell of a way to treat your wife. That's what we said for all the years from when first Jim & Morgan Olson showed up in the Reno ballroom dance scene in Fall 1995. He just kept throwing her under the wheels of the bus. My wife and I last saw them out dancing together in Reno in Fall 2006. They were even at our home for Christmas parties.

You as the reader, are an eavesdropper to this tale, but not always privy to the meanings. As is the case with most intimate conversations, the meanings of heritage carry memories private to those involved. It was clearly the early loss of Morgan’s natural parents, the two years in a LA orphanage, the repeated sexual abuse, Morgan’s subsequent adoption, and then the loss of Morgan’s natural younger brother and sister a year later, that darkened Morgan. Morgan learned the hard way that social responsibility is unavoidably a matter of degree and interpretation. Her natural father was Phillip von Wenzel, from Vienna, Austrian. Her natural mother, Shirley, was from Italy. During World War II, as their families became increasingly appalled by Hitler’s horrors, they were each respectively sent away to the perceived safety of London. Paul, Shirley’s younger brother, escorted her in London. Phillip was attended by only his mother as his father, a professor in Vienna, had been censored, and finally killed, by the Nazis after he spoke out one too many times against Hitler. The von Wenzels were not Jewish. They were educated and cultured humanists. In London, Phillip entered college. In London he met and fell in love with Shirley. Phillip went on to earn his Civil Engineering degree. With Morgan’s grandmother, there was, though, the haunting fear that her mind was destroyed because of the horrors of World War II. Phillip and Shirley were loving and supportive towards their family and each other. Morgan’s natural paternal grandmother continued to live with them after they came to Los Angeles, California in 1950 when Phillip went to work for Walt Disney at Disneyland. Morgan was born in LA in 1954, the first of either of her families to be born in America. She was repeatedly and proudly told she was conceived on the 4th of July (my birthday). English was the only language spoken in their home, as Phillip and Shirley were deeply disturbed by their countries' involvement in World War II. They changed von Wenzel and became Phillip and Shirley Wenzel, as it sounded more American to them. Morgan never knew her natural paternal relatives outside her grandmother, nor any natural maternal relatives outside her Uncle Paul. Uncle Paul was a couple inches taller than his sister Shirley, had dark hair, brown twinkling eyes, and a hearty laugh. In Morgan’s earliest memories, he spoke English with an accent when he was excited, like when he would promenade their street and innocently ogle the American girls. Morgan was raised in Shirley’s religion, Roman Catholic. Phillip and his mother had no religion, as it had died with Phillip’s father’s murder. Morgan’s family lived just a block down from the church, and the Father was a frequent dinner visitor as well as Morgan’s Uncle Paul, who lived a block the other way. Trips were made to watch her father help build Disneyland. All that changed one fateful night in summer 1958. Morgan was four years old. All her life she had heard the whispers that her grandmother was crazy. That her mind was effected by the murder of her husband in the foyer of their home, and the loss of her country, her world, her family and it's generations of wealth, and her culture. One difficult night of memories for Morgan’s grandmother somebody called the police. The LA police took Morgan and her siblings away. Morgan found herself in a world unknown, a Catholic orphanage. The loss of Morgan’s natural parents was a shock. The other shock was the immediate and repeated sexual abuse. I first met Morgan in May 1960 when she was six years old. I was 16. She was an extraordinarily beautiful child. Blonde, green-eyed, thin, smart, and she had the most engaging smile any of us had ever seen. Norm and Dee adopted her, and her brother, Bobby, one year younger, and sister, Judy, two years younger, out of the LA Catholic orphanage where they had lived the previous two years. Norm and Dee were close friends with my parents, who being good Catholics had eleven natural children. I was the oldest. Norm was of German background from Columbus, Ohio. His mother died when he was five. His father was broken by the death of his young wife, the responsibility of five young children, and the Great Depression. Norm came perilously close to starving during the Depression. But survive he did, escaping to Chicago where he put himself through undergraduate school. It's amazing how much Morgan looks like she is his natural daughter. He met Dee in Chicago. She was of an Italian background and also Roman Catholic. Her parents ran a delicatessen to support their brood of four. Dee ended up pregnant and her Catholic parents forced her into an abortion, as her parents did not approve of Norm. It was botched and she ended up sterile. Norm, not knowing she was pregnant, had gone off to serve in World War II, where he was shipped off to Africa to fight Rommel and pursued his Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering. After the war, he returned and Dee ran away to marry him. She worked to support him while he went on to get his Masters in Aeronautical Engineering. After his Masters that the GI BILL paid for Dee started her college training. Upon her graduation from undergraduate school, both now well into their thirties, she pressured Norm into adopting children. They went shopping for children and Morgan and her siblings fit their dream. So they bought them like they bought the Persian cats and the pure breed hunting dogs, and later in their life, the Morgan horses. The children were all severely ill though with scurvy, malnutrition, rickets, and physical abuse, and with deep emotional scars from repeated sexual abuse. A year later, most of it spent by the children in the hospital, Norm and Dee gave Morgan’s younger brother and sister back to the State. Norm and Dee raised Morgan in a private Catholic girls school, had a sitter, a housemaid, summer camp, Morgan’s clothes made for her each August, after school lessons; in general Morgan’s father had a schedule for her from when she was to wake up to when she was to go to sleep. Our parents sent Morgan and my brother Jason, a beautiful boy two years younger than her, and also always a highly imaginative intelligent child at play, to the Powers Modeling School. They were soon earning money modeling, separately and often together. We spent approximately six months to a year at one missile site after another as Norm and Dee and my parents were transferred around the country while the space program evolved. Soon after the man on the moon landing, Norm and Dee retired in 1970 and they bought the land on the highest hill where they built the biggest house in town that everyone could see. Morgan was 16. A year and a half later she surprised us all when she enlisted in the United States Air Force although she had been in the Civil Air Patrol. She graduated from high school with two scholarships, Social Studies and Creative Writing, two years of college, and immediately shipped off to Basic Training. Morgan’s fellow classmates all used their money to buy the 1972 Mach 1 Spirit of America Mustang. Morgan bought land. The Air Force introduced her to another world. The world of death and the horrific mutilation of life. Morgan’s discharge papers, Honorable with a Medical, have fourteen months overseas. Morgan came back from the war darker, her emotions colored more deeply. She refused to talk about it. In October 1974, she and my brother Jason moved in together when Morgan bought her first house. As an adult, Morgan eventually found her own brand of religion in 1978 that felt right for her although the Catholic religion of her childhood never went away. I find it ironic Religious Science is a manufactured Southern California generated system of beliefs from the late 1800's. California contains representatives of virtually every ethnic group in the United States, and is famous since the late 1960's for its experiments in lifestyle, and has a highly mobile population. These are all characteristics totally unknown in either of Morgan’s parent’s cultures. The years of child physical and sexual abuse left Morgan a frail, delicate and sickly child continuing into her adulthood. Morgan dealt with the years of child physical and sexual abuse and the horrors of the war she experienced by becoming an over-achiever and internalizing her feelings. She is a very successful well-respected businesswoman, college teacher, community volunteer and real estate investor with five California degrees. She received a 1986 Marin County Volunteer of The Year Award. In some way, usually small and secret, each of us is alone and wants to be understood. Yet we can never entirely understand another. Each of us remains part stranger, even to those who love us. There is no such thing as a perfect stranger. Gentleness is expected from the strong, and oftentimes from the weak comes cruelty. The best way to really look at people, no matter how old or impressive they are, as if they were children. Most people don't grow up, they just grow taller. Enter into Morgan’s life in February 1982 one Jim Olson. Morgan fell hard for him. He taught her that satisfaction and dissatisfaction vary over time and with social context. Cindy did a good job in writing about him in her article Now you call it madness (but I call it love). I met him through Morgan. I never understood his divorcing her four times and reconciling with her all four times. He’s a Peter Pan who not only didn’t grow older but also didn’t grow taller. His cross-dressing, drama queen and bondage/leather fetish is known but nobody really cares about them one way or the other. Jim’s October 2006 outing of his double life was not really a surprise to me. He always had what he thought was a well-hidden secretive side to him. It was obvious to others though. Jim and Morgan’s eleven-year life in Reno was the calmest most stable time of their 25-year relationship. I moved from Alameda, California to Reno after a couple visits to them discovering just how really cool Reno/Tahoe really is. The defamation he’s suing Morgan for is true. He is a cross-dresser. He does have two lives. He does have bondage/leather fetishes. He does have sadistic, masochistic sexual predator elements to his personality. He did have sexual predator issues with his student teacher. He did file a false police report she stole “his” car. He did forge her name. He did have homeowners insurance with her on the Reno houses. He did live with her until fall 2006. He did lie to get that default restraining order as he was the one who voided the two $10,000 checks she sent him and he recycled notes she had written him over the last 25 years falsely claiming she had just now sent them. He does still today have the Nevada Living Trust with her having even up till now, not revoked it. That’s again pretty telling of Jim and Morgan. Jim and Morgan aren’t over. They will never be over. They are each other’s fountainhead. That’s why they named all of their homes The Fountainhead as in Ayn Rand’s Roarke and Dominique. Morgan does what she has always done when he pulls these kinds of stunts, acting out his game, Prove Again How Much You Love Me. She waits faithfully for his return. Jim will do what he has always done after he pulls these kinds of stunts. He’ll return to Morgan. I'll even bet ya.

Well, I knew and know Mrs. Alexandra (Morgan Alexandra Olson) in a different context. She was first my neighbor then my landlord. She is always professional, by the contract, amazingly patient, totally changed my life for the better, and is the most rational person I have ever met. She talked me into taking her TMCC and then Morrison University classes. I flunked her very first class. In fairness to Morgan, she had been working with me. She did repeatedly tell me she recorded only the grade I earned. I didn’t believe her as being born and raised in Reno, teachers would pass students just to get rid of us. I was very angry when I first saw that final F. Morgan doesn’t give up. Somehow she talked me into going back to her class. She again walked me through all the resources the schools had to support my success. It took time, but that F changed my life. Morgan showed me I could learn. And learn I did. I learned first to think – Change Your Thinking Change Your Life. I learned to give up smoking. I learned my casino job was a deliberately orchestrated dead-end job strictly for the benefit of the casino who only looked upon me as a drone worker-bee. Morgan taught me to be a perpetual champion of the non-obvious. That being educated is far preferable to being trained. I took ballroom dance lessons from her where I met and married my wife. Jim and Morgan taught my wife and I that the true love of all dancers is in the dancing with each other. It is our interaction that is the experience, not realization. My wife and I took all of Morgan’s classes, and went on to get our TMCC degrees and then Bachelors degrees. Morgan wrote letters of recommendation for our school scholarships and our employment. She taught us many a startling lesson. She tutored and counseled us in everything from accounting to grammar. She introduced us to quantum physics, the world of statistics, and art in all its various guises. Her favorite poem is William Blake’s Auguries of Innocence: To see a World in a Grain of Sand And a Heaven in a Wild Flower Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hour. That is how we see and live in our world as well as do our circle of friends. Thank you Morgan for teaching us to pull back the veils of ignorance and to peer behind. Because of Morgan, we now own our own home with what she liked to call a safe and sane loan (FHA). We vote as Progressive Democrats, and listen to Air America instead of watching Fox. I named my first born after her as my daughter’s name is Alexandra. I am not the first student of Morgan to do that. I am very saddened to hear of her illness and hope she recovers 100%. The last I heard there was some neurological damage from the virus. Although Morgan presents herself as a businesswoman, she is really an artist. Quite an accomplished artist in fact. Having lived in a Morgan property, and later seen what she did to each of the homes she remodeled and decorated for Jim and her, she is the master. Each Fountainhead became increasingly more elegant, sophisticated, sensuous, and organic. Each house, the inside and the yards, were like a canvass that she was painting a picture upon. The ballrooms and train rooms were really cool. Whether it was her attire or a house, she has a keen understanding of texture, color, light, and shape. Her ear for music is exceptional. Morgan endows everything she does with value, originality and vitality. Morgan’s Achilles Heel is Jim Olson. Her love for him is not pragmatic. Their relationship is totally consistent with their experience as it lies beyond the capabilities of rational thought as the deed was done years ago. Love is not based upon “absolute truth or legal fictions.” All that a mind can ponder upon is its ideas about reality. Whether or not something is true is not a matter of how closely it corresponds to the absolute truth, but how consistent it is with experience. In Jim and Morgan, both very Peter Pan, the irrational merged with the rational. Love peered behind the scenes and told them what was really going on, their Connection. It awed each other in a way that they, and those of us who saw it in them, could never put into words. That wonder is a message to rational minds that love is being perceived and understood in ways other than rational. Love stands in awe and wonder understanding in a very specific way, even if that understanding can not be described. Love is intuitive. I agree with Amy. However Jim has not totally left Morgan since he still has their Trust. He has no choice but to remove his veils of his now self-imposed “ignorance/selective memory” in the face of all the witnesses and evidence, because his now false paradigm is his presently established thought process, his framework (lies). However, Jim and Morgan have always been explosive in terms of existing frameworks. Jim will be pulled back from his present world of symbols (legal/Logos bs lies – false distinctions he has created) as symbols do not follow the same rules as experience, to the realm of his Mythos experience with Morgan. Logos imitates, but can never replace, experience. Logos is an artificial construction of dead symbols that mimics experience. It is a substitute for experience. Mythos is the opposite of intellectualism. Mythos endows experience with worth, newness and zest. Jim knows the Mythos of how he and Morgan are connected in an intimate and immediate way. Their dance, rather than the dancers, is their primary importance. Attraction repulsion. It was plain for the ten or so years I knew Jim and Morgan in Reno where their hearts were – with each other. It remains certain that Jim had deliberately left open the door via their Trust. However, Jim’s behavior since his caught in his double life now raises many questions about his credibility and integrity. It’s been plain throughout this tempest since then, that something’s askew in River City. It raises more questions about how Jim and Morgan came to this juncture. I read the public records in both Nevada and California. Let’s begin with the obvious. Jim’s paperwork is self-serving without accepting responsibility for his own complicity. That is simply not how courts should be doing business. It’s not fair or just to Morgan. Go back and read Section One of the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution. Jim was with Morgan from February 1982 till Fall 2006. It’s simply astonishing to me what Jim has put into the public records and gotten away with perjury in his condescending tirades. And that Jim, to date, a year after his double-life outing, remains an equal co-trustee and 100% beneficiary of his Nevada Living Trust with Morgan. He has not revoked it. THAT ONE OMMISSION ALONE SCREAMS SO LOUD HIS CONTINUING INVOLVEMENT WITH MORGAN THAT IT DROWNS OUT ALL HIS OUTLANDISH CLAIMS (LIES). Morgan dies today, he inherits everything under it. That more than suggests it’s pretty clear he’s continuing to play everyone to his benefit. That he wants it both ways. It’s his actions that count not the fictitious version he’s put into the public records all without ever proving his case with specific verifiable facts. Myth created by repetition. NO MATTER HOW BRUTAL JIM HAS REPEATEDLY POSTURED IN THE PUBLIC RECORDS, VIA THAT TRUST, JIM’S STILL WITH MORGAN EVEN THROUGH TODAY. No wonder Jim became and remains so controversial. He is a firebrand and master at repetition in the service of falsehood in his attempts, with a vengeance, to re-write his 25-year history with Morgan. Afterall, history, whether current or distant, is a legal weapon. The battle over history is fought again and again. Winston Churchill warned against overreaction. “No case of this kind can be judged apart from its circumstances,” wrote Churchill. “Those who are prone by temperament and character to seek sharp and clear-cut solutions of difficult and obscure problems, who are ready to fight whenever some challenge comes from a foreign power have not always been right. On the other hand, those who take the opposite road are not always wrong. On the contrary, in the majority of circumstances, they are right, not only morally, but from a practical standpoint. How many wars have been precipitated by firebrands!” Which shows the risk to those who buck the conventional wisdom or current hysteria. Like Morgan who has again taken the high road in Jim’s latest drama by exercising her right to remain silent. She has again bowed her head, waits patiently and faithfully for peaceful reconciliation. Her love for him may not be practical, but how she has handled it always has been.

Tugging On Superwoman’s Cape is News We Don’t Want To Lose We heard about this Broowaha model from a colleague. We enjoyed surfing all the cities versions of Broowaha. We would enjoy a Reno version as we live in north Reno in an area known as Stead. Stead is to Reno what Novato is to Marin County which is where we moved from many many years ago. We still have a lot of friends and family in the Bay Area so are regular visitors. This article, Now you call it madness, but I call it love, to say the least, stunned us. Now we understand why this Cindy person was around in the neighborhood asking questions last Spring. Oh my God, what a dirt-bag he turned out to be. Isn’t he something?! Hard to be to the right of Ghenkis Khan but he managed. And he’s proud of it! Wow. Touchdown by default. Hell of a victory via smear, fear and lies. Way to go. He is an idiot. What a wheel of hypocrisy and inequities of double-speak. Very scrambly pathetic. What a betrayal of her trust and what he represented himself as to us. Doesn’t go over well with us Renoites, we kinda resent it. The facts are a very different picture than the one he re-painted over. We first met Jim and Morgan Olson Fall 1995 when they bought their first house in the Stead neighborhood. We thought at first they were newlyweds. Turned out they had been together a dozen or so years. They were a very congenial couple. I once asked them why there was so little furnishings in their Stead homes, pretty much only clothes. Turns out they had a home also in Marin according to Jim. “Our real home I keep trying to get Morgan to move back to,” he often complained. He was abit of a Marin snob. He also said everything was in the Marin home and just the bare necessities were in Reno. “Less to move each time,” they joked. Made sense as they went on to nicely remodel several homes in the neighborhood. Wedding Vows: to have and to hold in sickness and in health till death do you part. He said he was Morgan’s husband. They both wore wedding rings. He had homeowners insurance as Morgan’s husband on the Reno properties. He like to brag they were equal trustees and beneficiaries of their Nevada living trust. He was here each summer where he would pick her up and off they would go. He was here each holiday where he would arrive each time with a lot of packages! For her birthday, he rented the local school and hosted a very posh dance. The rest of the year, we would usually see him here weekends, even during bad weather. When Morgan was ill fall 2000 through the following year, he was here more often. I know we took her to the VA emergency a couple times in fall 2000. She also needed help while she was ill. We, the hospital and others helping out called Jim several times, and a few hours later each time he would show up. In the 11 or so years we saw Jim here, he was an enviable embodiment of marriage vows. Jim often expressed his pride in his “beautiful successful businesswoman wife.” He often talked proudly about how because of Morgan he would be able to retire early as they were using her money to buy early retirement credits for him at which point she would then move back to their Marin home. “Money well spent,” he said. I remember when he proudly showed up with another surprise for Morgan, CreamPuff, the beautiful Buick he’d bought for them in Marin. He loved telling us the story of how he had to forge her married name to complete the CreamPuff surprise for her. He also loved to tell us over and an over that an exceptional home is simply a frame for a exceptional life. They did have some exceptional homes in Reno. They had a nameplate on the storm door of their Reno homes they proudly moved from home to home, The Fountainhead, James K. Olson and J. Morgan Alexandra-Olson. He was every appearance a loving husband the 11 years we knew him here in Reno. We didn’t know the full extent of what had happened until we read this article. In fall 2006 we stopped seeing Jim around, and saw Morgan became increasingly depressed. In the January 2007 shocking break in and ransacking of their home, including the terrifying cutting of their bedspread, the police made it very obvious they thought it was him as normal valuables such as cash, jewelry, cds, medicines, etc., were left tossed around. So it was in the eyes of the Reno police domestic violence not a break-in as he can’t be arrested for breaking into his own property since he’s an equal trustee and beneficiary of their Nevada living trust that owns all their properties. At that break-in was the first we heard about the outing of his duplicity the previous October. Which was all very strange as we heard him talk Morgan “for money to fix up their Marin home” when he was out here with her in fall 2006. Questions: We’ve seen the papers. Does Jim think he’s OJ Simpson? Why wasn’t he arrested for domestic violence? How does Jim, a retired schoolteacher, who was able to retire early with her earnings, have a million and half dollars in damages? (If he’s not married to her as he now claims, he sure fooled us in Reno for 11 years telling us different, including the insurance company.) If so, how come he hasn’t been arrested for Reno homeowners insurance fraud as he obtained the policies for several years in the names of James K. and Morgan Olson certifying the Reno home as his home and he was the landlord of another? If so how come he hasn’t been arrested for forging her married name, J. Morgan Olson, in the purchase of CreamPuff. (He has to be married to her or those acts he did are felonies. If Jim is married to Morgan, then he’s a bigamist, also a felony. Either way, he should have been arrested and convicted months ago.) Why hasn’t he been arrested for repeated perjury? (He lied to get that default restraining order.) Why does he still have a legally valid Nevada living trust with Morgan? Oh, we get the picture now. Of course, it’s so he gets all the benefits of his double life. Morgan dies, he inherits everything under that trust. Now that, along with his being caught, are some big motivations for something even more scary to happen to her. After all, he spent years bragging to us about Morgan giving him the money several times each year to buy his early retirement and so they would own their Marin home free and clear and so that Morgan would then move back to that Marin home. Oops, but now she can’t ‘cause he got caught. Now she has no retirement and no free and clear home. Jim does though thanks to Morgan. His Wardrobe: Jim had more clothes than even Morgan. Shirts, ties, pants, belts, shoes, and socks in every color and texture imaginable. And suits and tuxedos. He introduced us to the term metrosexual. He was in love with the mirror, the camera, leather, and vinyl. His cross-dressing, which we didn’t know about before, explains a lot. I heard on Air America that Herbert Hoover was a cross-dresser with Shirley Temple his favorite role-model for his female attire. Yikes! A little girl!? What Jim as done is abusive. Since his double life outing, he has become a frightening legal tormentor. Or maybe he always was. We didn’t know until the article he had filed four times before to divorce her. Jim getting that Marin default restraining order by lying AND serving her with no time to hire a Marin attorney was shameful. Makes sense though after reading about him filing a police report she stole his car but forgot to tell the police she was his wife and also on title. Those and the $1.5m are the equivalent of ole Burt hiring the thugs to throw lye into Linda’s face in that Crazy Love film. We’re all now very concerned for Morgan. We fear the worst since he threw her under the wheels of the bus last October. He left her with the cash transferred to him, no retirement, no home free and clear, the Reno houses all in foreclosure, and her broken. We haven’t seen or heard of or from Morgan since last July. All the bank will tell us is that she doesn’t work there anymore. All her non-credit fall TMCC classes were canceled. She’s not teaching her usual TMCC fall credit classes. She hasn’t been at Conversation Café for months. We, and many others, are concerned for her. We’re putting our comment as Anonymous as it has become clear Jim is a dangerous psychopath of the worse kind, a crybaby when caught. My husband asked me to close with his comments, “a lady has doors held open for her because she is a lady, a principle Morgan has down pat. It’s a disappointment to all of us who knew them that her husband Jim turned out to not be the equal gentleman he portrayed himself to us as for those 11 years.”

Well well well where do I start? First, breaking news from AP: Sexual misconduct plagues US schools at http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20071020/ap_on_re_us/teacher_sex_abuse Second, as a widow of a certain age, now I’m 61, I met Jim Olson through ballroom dancing in the South Bay back in 1992. I had a brief affair with him I quickly ended when I found out about his obsessive fetishes. Over the years it seems he’s had an affair with every woman at the dances, who all also quickly ended each affair when he became unsettling adamant about his fetishes being met. He refused to even be friends with any of us after that. He never mentioned to me he was/is married nor to the others when I asked them after reading this Broowaha article by Cindy. This Cindy writes like she is another of his victims he threw under the wheels of the bus. Her story is tragically sordid for the women who made the mistake of getting involved with him. He really is just a ridiculous little man, an ego-maniac who needs to dial down his bs. He maybe is even a sociopath. Or maybe the compulsions are part of being a teacher or specifically a band director. After reading this article I want to do like in Network, open up the window and scream out it ”I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore.” Lastly, Band instructor suspected of relationship with teen By ROSALIO AHUMADA rahumada@modbee.com September 23, 2007 Modesto police have arrested a 41-year-old Modesto High School band instructor in connection with his suspected involvement in an inappropriate relationship with a 15-year-old student. Detectives arrested Lewis Wilhelm at his central Modesto home Friday night on suspicion of committing lewd and lascivious acts with a child, said Sgt. Craig Gundlach, a Modesto police spokesman. "A romantic relationship between a 41-year-old man and a 15-year-old girl is inappropriate," Gundlach said. "When you add the inappropriate touching, that's just flat out against the law." Gundlach said there was no indication that sexual intercourse took place. Wilhelm was booked into Stanislaus County Jail, but later was released on $25,000 bail, jail officials said. Attempts to speak with Wilhelm at his home and by phone Saturday were not successful. Gundlach said detectives searched Wilhelm's home and seized several items, including his computer and cell phone. The detectives said they believe e-mails or text messages may have been exchanged between Wilhelm and the girl. Wilhelm's 15-year-old son was home at the time of the arrest and was released to his grandmother, Gundlach said. Wilhelm has been the school's band instructor for 10 years. Modesto City Schools Superintendent Arturo Flores and Modesto High Principal Hugo Ramos could not be reached for comment Saturday. Gundlach said the victim told a friend about her relationship with Wilhelm. Friday afternoon, the friend went to school officials to report the relationship. Gundlach said Modesto City Schools administrators immediately contacted Modesto police school resource officers, who initiated an investigation. Modesto police Special Victims Unit detectives assisted in the investigation and contacted Wilhelm at his house about 6:30 p.m. Friday. Detectives said they believe the relationship began in the early summer at one of the school's music department activities, Gundlach said. On at least one occasion, the victim went to Wilhelm's house and detectives believe Wilhelm engaged in touching of a sexual nature with the student at that time. The relationship continued through the summer and into the school year, Gundlach said. "At this point, there is nothing to indicate there are any other victims," said Detective Steve Stanfield. "But we are going to do a thorough investigation to make sure." In addition to his duties at Modesto High, Wilhelm was a founding member of the Fever Drum and Bugle Corps of Modesto, a competitive musical organization for ages 14-21. Wilhelm was forced to step down as director in April 2006 because of the organization's financial struggles, said Anna-Marie Bratton, the corps' board president. Bratton said she is not aware of any inappropriate behavior that took place between Wilhelm and corps members. "I hate to see this happen to anyone," Bratton said. "I hate to think any kid could be hurt in this way." Modesto police ask anyone with information about this crime to call CrimeStoppers at 521-4636. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward. Bee staff writer Rosalio Ahumada can be reached at rahumada@modbee.com or 578-2394. This article appeared on page B - 2 of the San Francisco Chronicle by John Cote Friday, July 6, 2007. A San Mateo County judge Thursday slashed bail to $100,000 for a San Bruno high school band teacher charged with having sex with a 17-year-old female student. The judge reduced the bail after attorneys on both sides of the case agreed the sex was consensual and occurred within three months of the girl turning 18. "The thing that bothers me the most is the violation of trust" by a teacher, Superior Judge Carl Holm said, but added later that, "love is blind; love is stupid sometimes." Holm cut bail for Adam Albrecht, 28, of Broadmoor from $500,000 to $100,000. The defense had asked that bail be reduced to $35,000. The prosecution argued it should be unchanged. Albrecht faces 16 felony counts of oral copulation with a minor and 16 felony counts of unlawful sexual intercourse after he allegedly had sex with the girl at school and at both of their homes starting in February, prosecutors said. The relationship continued after the girl turned 18 in May. Albrecht, who taught band, choir and orchestra at Capuchino High School, resigned his post this summer. The alleged victim in the case headed a band section, prosecutors said.

Whoa Nellie, what a story beyond the pale. The ballroom dance world’s dirty little secret is out. There are a lot more women than men in it. Most of them older, uneducated and poor. I’m typical. Now 68, have a GED, been a renter all my life and married and divorced three times. Women do ballroom dancing to get a husband and men do it to get sex. Period. Silly Morgan arrived to a dance head over heels in love with an older short fat guy who didn’t know how to dance, and introduced him as Jim Olson, a Marin music teacher, her husband. He certainly was a Marin snob. He disappeared for a couple hours so it was not a surprise when he arrived at the next dance without Morgan, telling us he was divorcing her as she was just too young and immature. I never saw her at a California dance after that. Foolish girl, schools are another popular place for sexual predators. She had to have known that by bringing him, a public school teacher, to the dance she had brought a predator to another feasting ground. So Jim, now purported single man, became an accomplished California dance troller. Predictably, it was easy for me to get him out for the popular parking lot in the woman’s car tryst. We all had affairs with all the men at the dances as we believed any husband was better than no husband. Jim and the other purportedly single men always went first to the woman’s car then her home. That’s why we didn’t know then he was living on a tiny boat, or he still had a wife. To hear him talk, he had a stately mansion in ritzy Sausalito, was single, available, and wealthy. We didn’t know until we read this article we’d heard about at the dances that he had filed to divorce Morgan four times then reconciled four times. He never mentioned that, or later even this Lucy. Sex with Jim Olson was unsatisfactory. He starts out impotent as he demands specific acts (him bottom tied up pretending he is a woman getting it and leather/vinyl clothes, a high heel on his chest, Bettie Page porn) to get him going, which seldom happened, and if it did, lasted only a few seconds. He did nothing to satisfy me. Other women also briefly had disappointing affairs with him. They said the same - it was all for him. We believe he has two personalities anyway, his male one and his female one so his crossdressing is really no surprise. Wouldn’t want to be married to one tho. Then, like so many others, I moved to more affordable Reno in August 2001 where I first saw Jim and Morgan Olson together at the Northern Nevada dances!?! She had been ill for quite a while, been in for a mass in the breast and thyroid cancer, I didn’t know all the details. She was slowly recuperating. In February 2002 they were celebrating their 20th anniversary. What a surprise as he had told dozens of us back in California he divorced her in April 1991. Had nothing to do with her after that he said. Now he rather anxiously played the faithful loving husband always at her side through her sickness. Was taking her to the doctor. Claimed they were married. They wore wedding rings. He bragged how they were Reno landlords. Even had a Living Trust. He was driving CreamPuff, the surprise he told repeatedly how he had bought for Morgan in Marin by forging her married name. He talked proudly of his beautiful successful businesswoman wife buying his retirement credits so he could retire early and they live together free and clear in their Marin home. She was going by Morgan Alexandra Olson. The regulars at the Northern Nevada dances told me Jim and Morgan Olson had first shown up in fall 1995. At her 2002 birthday dance I went to he went to a lot of detail and effort to organize her annual Reno birthday dance. But this guy has been screwing around with other dancers in California since spring 1991 that I had known of! My dance friends in California told me that Jim Olson was still showing up at the dances there having one brief affair after another. No one knew he was now living in a trailer in Novato, or he had a Nevada life and still had a wife, or now two as this article says. My California dance friends said he still acted like he had a stately mansion in ritzy Marin, still said he was single, available, and wealthy. He never even mentioned Nevada. But none of that in Nevada, no siree, no screwing around or crossdressing for Jim Olson in Nevada. Nevada didn’t have a clue about his California double-life. At a 2002 Reno Christmas dance party, he had just driven in from Marin, Morgan ran up hugging and kissing him hello. A man joked, “how does the old short fat guy rate?” A man answered “Her husband. Teaches in Marin. Here some weekends and holidays, summers.” Another man then said “Rate? There’s no ratings. You’re new. Look around. Ten women for every guy. To score at these dances all you got to do is be a guy.” Jim acted like he never remembered me. I’ve been to Jim and Morgan Olson’s Reno homes for various dance practice, events and parties. Anything he wanted, she did her darndest to get for him. He wanted a bigger home so she bought and they moved from the older house to the much newer 2-story. Then he decided he didn’t like a 2-story so she bought again and they moved to the single story across the street. Then he decided the garage was too small and he wanted a 3-car garage. So she bought again and they moved again, and again she remodeled to what he wanted. Then he decided he wanted to be closer in so she bought again but money was tight as she had given so much for him to buy his retirement credits, that this one had to start as a rental. Each one was progressively more beautiful. And each had their ballroom and his train room. Every other weekend, holidays and summers was when I saw him here in Reno with her until fall 2006. I haven’t seen either of them since. My California dance friends say he’s MIA there also. Yeah, he’s a dirt-bag sexual predator. But then all men in ballroom dancing are. According to this article, at some point she knew about his crossdressing, so she knew he isn’t operating with all 8 cylinders. She had to know he had screwed around on her. According to this article he divorced her four times. But she kept taking him back. It wasn’t my place to let the truth out about his California double-life. I thought he was just a serial affairer.

Craig B and I were talking as it turns out I knew Jim and Morgan Olson. But not the ones Craig satirized. They were a pleasant couple to socialize with. Both could carry on intelligent conversations which can sometimes be too rare to have in Reno. It was always stimulating conversations covering art to real estate, music to science fiction, culture to war, color to texture, quantum physics to flowers. I don’t want to go into the details of their private life as that’s been pretty well covered from what I’ve read in the public records and elsewhere. I do like Craig’s article where he poked some fun at them. Jim’s $1.5m lawsuit and his ugly claims against her in the court’s public records really did beg for Craig’s article and its subsequent comments. A real shame because the Olsons brought a sense of class, sophistication and grace to everything they did when I knew them as a couple for 11 or so years in Reno. There’s a hole in our Reno cultural life with them gone. But that’s not really what I wanted to comment on. It’s their Reno homes I wanted to comment on. Among the other great legacies they left us, their homes deserve more comment although Joan, bless her, and Kyle, who I watched grow from an arrogant ignorant boy to a cultured man under Morgan’s tutelage, did nicely comment already about their Reno homes. Few homes in Reno, even in Somersett, St James Village, Arrowcreek, Montreau, etc., have the character of an Olson Reno home. The closest would be some of the homes in Southwest Reno or Incline Village. Each Fountainhead, their name for each property, had all the modern conveniences of a newly built home with the added benefit of mature landscaping. Their gardens, backyards and patio areas, front, side and back, were designed for entertaining and for private moments, with sheltered and open spaces doubling as an outdoor dining room, cigar lounge and wine tasting depending on where you chose to sit and what you wanted to do. Their great rooms were just amazing. Their ballrooms made me want to put on a gown and dance with a tuxedoed gentleman. Dozens of small, individually important touches made their homes one that I just didn’t want to leave they were so comfortable and elegant. Jim and Morgan Olson did see a World in a Grain of Sand, Heaven in a Wild Flower, Held Infinity in the palms of their hands and Eternity in an hour. I don’t know the Jim written about here or the Morgan he has accused her of being in the court’s public records. My best wishes go out to all the parties involved.

When I was little I was too scared to talk. Got older, too ashamed. Now I’m mad. My family came to Marin County from Iran. The pressure was there for grades to get me into the right university. We kids giggled about the talk of his Grade Couch. (Today I wonder why a school district allowed a teacher to have a leather couch, and other sexual items, in his school office.) We also giggled at the leather clothes he bought the school secretary. We wondered at his leather trousers and sports coats. (Today I wonder why a school district allowed a teacher to wear leather at the school.) Later we giggled about the woman dressed in leather and vinyl who brought him his lunches. I didn’t giggle when the school custodian walked in on us on the Grade Couch where I later found myself when I knew I couldn’t disappoint my parents who were sacrificing all for me. (Today I angrily wonder why the custodian did not say or do something then.) My parents lost all in the Marin housing crash as they overextended themselves to pay for my college. I married in college, we both graduated, he was offered a job in Reno, Nevada, I found a job there, we moved and bought a home there and my parents moved in with us. My husband said I would be a good real estate agent so I enrolled at Truckee Meadows Community College to take the classes to get the license. I was very surprised when Mr. O showed in August 2006 at my real estate class to pick up the teacher where he introduced himself as her husband of some 25 years, that he was now retired. He had never wore a ring or mentioned being married while he was my teacher in Marin. I then realized she was the woman who brought him lunches years ago at Redwood High dressed in vinyl and leather.

And why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings."--- Lewis Carroll Sassy, Sassy, Sassy, girlfriend, bending him over your knee and spanking him would just excite him rather than punish him. I'm not surprised about the beautiful home comments. I am about the Grade Couch. That's unusual for a cd. A favorite cd saying: If the high heel fits, wear it. Of course Jimmy Olsen is a cd. Hello. What do you expect from a guy who hangs around with a macho straight guy who wears spandex and a cape? About what you'd expect from a guy who himself wears leather and vinyl. - also, mixing leather and vinyl is quite acceptable - and we cds are no diffrent than every other living creature, we always appreciate being given the benefit of the doubt.

I was loving the humor - let's have more humor. Less of that namby-pamby touchy-feely, more grit. Less compassion, more skewering. Cindy, I suspect you are a stakeholder in this story. Are you the Cindy that the Marin school district threw under the wheels of the bus? He bought leather for the school secretary?! He wore leather to school?! He had a leather couch in his school office?! His wife brought him lunch dresed in leather and vinyl?! What the hell was wrong with that school district?

Tamara, well written comment. That is correct that cross-dressers are not harmless. I did not ever mean to imply that in my previous comment. Marin County, especially their schools, are notorious for these men with secrets resulting in their living double lives. Probably why Jim choose to live and work his adult life there. Unfortunately the statistics do bear out all of what Tamara wrote. That domestic violence from the man is a characteristic of all male cross-dressers marriages or relationships who fail to immediately disclose their secrets. Once outed, all these men turn it on its head and claim it’s the wife who is the abuser, the mentally unstable one. Those secrets, deception, manipulativeness, selfishness, playing the victim, deceit, narcissism, arrogance, control, and drama, are all characteristics of all cross-dressers. The more closeted they are, which usually happens as they age, the deeper and darker the characteristics. The retired San Francisco attorney in the article, who mentioned he’s on his fifth marriage, and his fifth wife, like the previous four, didn’t know he was a cross-dresser when she married him. That is abuse. A marriage doomed. Larry-Lauren’s comment about his marriage unraveling due to his secret he kept from his wife, his cross-dressing. That is abuse. Another marriage doomed. Both these men mention they go to cross-dressing support groups. That is not enough. So the abuser goes to listen to other abusers who all agree that abusing is ok. All the cross-dressed men who over the years I saw come into the B& D Clubs are now being dragged into counseling with me by their wives or girlfriends after finding out afterwards about their secrets. Those are absolutely devastating secrets to keep from one’s spouse. Not even one of these outed marriages/relationships has survived his outing as a cross-dresser. Their wives and girlfriends feel too betrayed by his secrets leaving a grievous level of hurt permanently scarring the women. The only marriages/relationships I’ve seen survive with a cross-dresser is when the wife/girlfriend knew from moment one of their meeting and was able to openly negotiate their relationship up front. That is what I counsel. Larry Wochowski’s solution is the only workable one for a cross-dresser and I commend him for it. He found a woman, she knew right up front, and he openly lives in a world and constructively contributes to it where he is hurting no one as he lives what he is. That is what mental health is all about. Taking responsibility for what one is and how one interacts with others. By living an all-around healthy life.

Finally some experts step in and write what I've been telling my wife when she started riding me about this guy and his story. This guy's not operating with a full six pack. He is an abuser as they title it. Keeping secrets form your spouse is the fast track to divorce. And you know what they say about marriage and divorce. Marriage is grand and divorce is one hundred grand. Why hasn't he been arrested?!

This story’s gotten even more than somewhat startling. One meltdown after another. Beat it ride it, that’s what I’d been hearing about these two and why they just disappeared a year or so ago from our little Reno dance scene. None of this surprises me. Jim Olson made it clear he was gracing us with his presence only because of his wife Morgan. For the eleven years I knew him in Reno here’s his attitude. He would swagger into our dances. He constantly said I’m a superior dancer, I’m an excellent husband, we have a home in Marin County, I put on the finest dances, I am a professional musician, I have more education, I surpass you in dress, I have a ballroom and train room in our Reno home, I’m smarter than you, I have more money, I have better homes, I have rentals, forgetting that it was Morgan who got them the homes and rentals. This conceited asshole was always out to show up us “Reno hicks.” For years I practiced dance with Morgan at The Fountainhead as they called their various homes. When Morgan was ill in 2001, I helped her out. Yeah he showed up around six hours after at her insistence I called him from the hospital. He played the faithful husband to the max when he was in Reno. Which was as others have said, holidays, their anniversaries, their birthdays, every other weekend, summers. He didn’t fool me. Her love for him blinded her. I tolerated him only because of Morgan. She refused to believe us when we tried to tell her of what we knew about his California double life – that this Moralizing Hypocrite was just fucking her, like he did to all the women. Only his other secrets did not occur in The Internet Age. It was The Internet that busted wide open his double life. She had to have known as he was always shooting across her bow according to what I and many others suspected. She just had her heart set on him and probably kept hoping he would shape up and not eventually sink her. But he did.

Almost a couple million years ago, through evolution, our species and others were hard- wired for certain behaviors. Such as Loving and Being Loved in Return. Such as females of several species are hard wired for seeking Love aka A Provider. Hard-wired means done instinctively. Humans being are one species, Black Tipped Hang Fly, Common Tern, Roadrunner and Preying Mantis being others. These females, as they are the ones for getting pregnant for propagation of the species, seek a male who will after sex, provide for them and their presumed offspring from the sex act. That providing includes lifetime food, shelter, protection and always being there for her. That is why women insist on marriage and take his marriage vows so seriously. The male is hard-wired for offering dinner dates. In Anatomy of Love, anthropologist Helen Fisher describes the offering of food as the “universal feature of wooing.” The male Black Tipped Hang Fly plies the female with a feast of aphids, daddy longlegs and flies. “The common male Tern often brings a fish to his beloved. The male Roadrunner presents a little lizard.” Today’s woman is still getting this Love aka Get A Provider directive from her genes. Does not matter if she is a staunch feminist, earns more than $100,000 a year, or has no plans for children. She has to eat off his plate. For that reason the “joke” that woman are “What is mine is mine and what is his is also mine.” That is why birthday, anniversary and holiday presents from him to her, and a lot of them, are so vitally important to her. So is public handholding. Sleeping so close, they’re wrapped together. Sitting next to each other at a table rather than across each other after he has seated her. Him writing her love-letters. He opening her car door. Him wearing her wedding ring. Him publicly kissing her hello and good-bye with the resulting transference of some of her lipstick to him. Him having flowers delivered to her office. All that and so much more is part of her two million-year-old hard-wiring. Women instinctively want a Provider who will always be there for her. Literally, symbolically and figuratively. As I’ve written before, I specialize in men who cross-dress and the women who fall in love with them before they know about his fetish. From the viewpoint of the hard wiring of the woman, a male cross-dresser is a sheep in wolf clothing. After the woman finds out about his cross-dressing, that trauma leaves a massive psychic scar as it attacked almost 2 million years of her hard wiring. From the viewpoint of the hard wiring of the woman, her provider who divorces her less than 30 days after their marriage, then goes on to divorce her four more times, has violated her to the core of her being. That is why the vast majority of women have a nervous breakdown after they find out about their provider’s infidelities. Or when he has her served with divorce papers. Or when she finds out he is a cross-dresser. Her hard wiring interprets all of these as that he is not there for her. That he broke his Provider Promise or Violated His Marriage Vows. The nervous breakdown ranges from mild to serious. The wife/girlfriend has dragged both of them in after her discovery of his cross-dressing. He’s always still in denial after his outing. Self-centeredness and selfishness are cross-dresser characteristics. Therefore, cross-dressers are Masters at Appearances/Deception with years of experience Hiding Their Secret. The older the cross-dresser is that I see, the more likelihood of his having a Double Life. From the viewpoint of psychology, he is often a Serial Abuser. His behavior is often Domestic Violence.

By Sausalito Mama on December 03, 2007 at 03:27 pm
We retired to Reno in 1998, moving from Sausalito. My husband, a veteran, died shortly afterwards. In January 2000, at the age of 71, I became a volunteer at the Reno VA hospital through October 2004. There I ran into Jim and Morgan Olson who I had known from Sausalito. I first met them through the Sausalito Chamber of Commerce in I think it was 1983. I enjoy keeping up with San Francisco news and in surfing the web for it, I just discovered BrooWaha. I was more than surprised at some of what I’ve read about the Olsons. I’ve only known them as a happily married couple first in Sausalito and then in Reno. They suggested I take up ballroom dancing and I spent many an hour practicing with them at their homes. In the dance world I’d heard the rumors about him but didn’t really think about it one way or the other as I only practiced dance with them or saw him at the hospital with Morgan or went to the dances he put on here in Reno. I did notice his short man syndrome as he was pretty egotistical. Jim was with her when she was in for the breast mass. In fall 2000 Morgan took ill and was in and out of the VA hospital clinics, Urgent Care and Emergency Room with heart attack and stroke symptoms. Jim was with her again. This went on through much of 2001. Sometimes she brought herself in, other times it was friends. Each time I would call Jim at their Novato home, and a few hours later, he would always be here to support her. After Morgan recovered in late 2001, they resumed dancing together. I think it was fall 2003 when Morgan came in with a collapsed lung from a broken rib, damaged knee, broken teeth and burnt leg from some car accident where somebody ran into her. I called Jim at their home in Novato and a few hours later he was at the hospital with her. I saw that he continued to support her in her rehab up until my health forced me to leave volunteering and ballroom dance in October 2004. About their homeowners insurance, CreamPuff and their trust. Well, Jim made it repeatedly clear he was proud of his businesswoman wife and their various Reno properties. He did always say he was her husband. He did always say she was his wife. They both always wore wedding rings. He had talked about their homeowners and landlords insurance in their married names. Liked to lecture us on the merits of having the right coverage as one can’t be too careful as a landlord. Same for their Nevada trust. He was so proud of CreamPuff. Brought it to a Reno dance in summer 2000 and dragged everyone out to the parking lot to oh and awe while he proudly told the story of how he forged Morgan’s name to buy it in Marin as a surprise for her. He did say that once he retired Morgan was moving back to their Marin home. He did say that was going to be soon as he also lectured us on the benefits of his buying early retirement credits. Doing it, he said proudly, with the money from the Reno houses.

I heard on Fox News that it’s Rudy Guiliani Jim Olson’s now supporting. They have that heterodoxy in common. Rudy, the cross-dressing, nonchurch-going, closet elitist, patriotic, pro-military, pro-choice, several times married, double-lifer, feeding at the public trough, New York Republican tying himself up has much in common with James, the cross-dressing, nonchurch-going, closet elitist, patriotic, pro-military, pro-choice, several times married, double-lifer, feeding at the public trough, Marin County Republican tying himself up. Both have urban cowboy (those high-heels again) Save A Horse Ride A Cowboy masks and costumes, are tough-talking liars, have moral unclarity in their rhetoric, have spectacularly rocky personal and professional lives, and have special vulnerabilities aka Secrets. In other words, nothing new under the sun here, the gun-slinging sheriff archetype, just with different ZIP codes. Savvy Mate? Kris & Charles Jr, those Little Caesar’s pizza and Pepsi specials have also gotten us through many a starving time. Now if we just can get them to add A Hot & Willing Female Topping with it . . .
