Drew Peterson Lawsuit

Taken from

Drew Peterson made an apparent slip Thursday on "Good Day Chicago" on the city's FOX affiliate, suggesting inexplicably that his fourth wife is gone forever.

During an interview on the morning show, he said that he tells his children their mother, Stacy Peterson, is on vacation and is not coming back.

When asked, "Why do you say she's not coming back," Peterson, a suspect in his wife's disappearance, first denied making the comment. Then, when pressed, he said it was merely a slip of the tongue.

Stacy Peterson disappeared in October 2007. Drew Peterson has been the focus of a police and grand jury investigation, but he has not been charged.

The death of Peterson's third wife, Kathleen Savio, in a bathtub was ruled a homicide after initially being deemed accidental. Savio's body was exhumed and re-examined after Stacy Peterson vanished.

Authorities have not identified him as a suspect in Savio's death. Peterson has denied any involvement in either case.

On Tuesday, his attorney, Joel Brodsky, reiterated Peterson's innocence after Savio's family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against him, alleging the former Chicago-area police sergeant drowned her in the bathtub.

I need everyone's opinion. I recently applied and got selected to do another Disney College Program starting this May and ending in December. I'm not sure whether or not I should stay around here and wait for a state job to open up so that I'll make more money and more importantly, have state benefits (mainly health insurance). If I go to Disney, I'll at least be making some income while working at a job I love, but if I leave here, I lose all of my chances to get into a state job while I wait to get into the academy. But on the other hand, if I go to Disney, I can always leave early if I have to.

Also, if I move, I'll have to continually make trips to Chicago to test for the academy, which could get quite expensive. However, if I stay here, who knows how long it might take for anyone to call me back about a job, and at least working for Disney, I would have some income, even though it won't be much.

As you can see, it's a bit of a dilemma. Please, let me know your thoughts.
