Tonight I watched a new TV show IN PLAIN SIGHT. It's about the Witness Protection Program, or WITSEC as it's also known. This show has as its main character a US Marshal who is responsible for those in the program. Tonight she picked up a Ukrainian woman who worked as a bookkeeper and was slated to testify against her boss. Then she had to deal with the murder of the son of a family in the program. Surprisingly, the murder wasn't solved in the hour, it took an hour and 15 minutes. There's even a little humor in this show, her family is a little strange.
This is beginning to look like a trend in entertainment. I just finished a book by Andrew Gross called THE BLUE ZONE which dealt with WITSEC and last year WITHOUT A TRACE dealt with a missing girl whose father was in WITSEC.
It is an interesting concept. People are given a chance to start over, start fresh. All they have to do is give up everything they know, their friends, family, roots. I doubt if I could do it.
