the plan

Michael and Robert Bever

“The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry” or so the saying goes. We center our lives around “plans”; we attempt to impart certainty to an otherwise unknown future. When we were young, we planned on being a firefighter, a policeman, a teacher, or maybe a nurse, most often than not, something heroic. Typically, that plan didn’t include hurting people; it didn’t include the desire to be infamous.

In today’s episode, we will examine the plan created by two brothers, Robert and Michael Bever, “a plan” that changed from wanting a future of normality to one that included the goal of infamy. This plan included a guise that was intended to strike fear and horror. The plan included the murder of their family on their way to a killing spree that would make them known worldwide.

There is also another saying about plans, and most of us are very familiar with it; we know it to be the truth, and that is, “things don’t always go as planned.”
