“Aspiring Actress”

I remember reading about Claudia Hidic, before we knew she was an accomplice in her own death, and thinking that “aspiring actress” was kind of a weird characterization for a Bosnian immigrant to Texas by way of Germany.  Seriously, shouldn’t a seventeen year old have to accomplish something a little more affirmative than just telling people she wants to be an actress in order to qualify as “aspiring”?  Or perhaps they thought “Bosnian immigrant” might be . . . misunderstood?

Looks like she already had a list of accomplishments, all of them criminal. But you are right. At 17, never taken any affirmative steps to being an actrice, calling her an aspiring actress is unqualified.

Also, she should not even be in this country. Burglary is not one of those jobs that Americans won't do.
