Remember Varsha Sabhnani?

She was the Demon Lady on Long Island who tortured two Indonesian maids for years. She was finally convicted and sentenced to eleven years--and is of course appealing, tho the financial part of her sentence is still pending. Back wages for her two tortured slaves might come to $1m. You can Google the name for more details. The new datum I thought interesting was that shortly after she'd begun her reign of terror, with just a single maid to torture, she began to diet--cutting back from 325 pounds to her current wraithelike 155. Is this somehow part of psychopathology of anorexia? Her two older-teenage daughters, who helped her with the torturing, are also ultra skinny. The family that starves together carves together?
