Now, don't get me wrong here. I'm not saying that Lynn is unique in having an observer bias. The problem is that she can't seem to figure out that other people can't see inside her skull so she tends to say some pretty wacky stuff. As a for instance, she couldn't have made it clearer that she believed that she actually had to show a blow-by-blow account of April's time in hospital after her near-drowning and that it would take weeks to do so. Nothing in her half-education had ever prepared her for the possibility of her readers saying "Oh, right. John told Elly and his parents that he'd meet them at the ER. Hey, there's April. She must have checked out okay or they'd have mentioned a problem." if she'd done what I thought she should have.
When she really, really failed to see the point was, of course, when she wrote that "Please love Anthony" thing. As one could expect, she said a lot of things that made sense to her. The idea that that would only intensify the debate was a point lost on her because she can't see very far.
