A Helpful Hint

Don't want to have your picture taken as you leave court after your arraignment? Then don't stuff your seven-year-old son in a hot oven. How 'bout that? Who are you, the witch in Hansel and Gretl?

This was... just one of those days.

What the freakin' WHAT?!?!! Thank God they got the kid out of there. And I'm glad the daycare provider is having charges pressed against her too, because the fact that she didn't report it is just inexcusable.

I have to say, though, I love that your paper published her home address. Not that harassment and public humiliation would be a good enough punishment for what she's done, but you know, it's a start.

It's sad because that doesn't seem that extreme or out of the ordinary because of the world we live in and the things I've seen/heard first hand in my six years of teaching...It is still horrible, but it doesn't surprise me at all.

On Thursday (I think?) they found the bodies of 4 young girls in a house in DC. They're not sure how long the bodies have been there, but it's possible that it's been several months. Their mother was living in the house, and said they were possessed by demons. One was stabbed (they think), the other three suffocated or strangled.
Today I had to turn off the news radio when Gaby asked "why were four young girls found dead?"
