Rusty Yates Remarries

Rusty Yates, ex-husband of the soon-to-be-retried Andrea Yates, remarried today according to the Associated Press. Now, one can see many reasons why Mr. Yates might prefer new bride Laura Arnold over the jilted Andrea. Foremost among them, one presumes, is the fact that Ms. Arnold did not recently drown all of Mr. Yates’s children in a bathtub on the direct orders of Satan. But—and far be it from me to judge people on their looks—comparing recent photographs of the two, one might also observe that Yates “traded up.”
