That was almost movie like Ken. My uncle pulled that on me when I asked hom about my past a year or so back. Only he was whining and berating me for not being as strong as him and keeping quiet at the same time. Apparently my father raped him regularly. He wouldn't say exactly and I'm not sure I buy it he was trying to convince me he had alzheimer's at the same time to justify not answering any of my questions about what happened to me.
Anyway it was sorta nice to see it written up that way where the old guy kind of admired his progeny for being able to be open about it, and making it easier for him to finally unburden himself.
As Mark Twain once quipped, history may not repeat itself, but it does rhyme.
