It Sure Sucks When Life Gets In The Way Of Blogging

Stories I meant to blog about but never got around to:

Missouri mother indicted in deadly MySpace hoax. Some of you my recall the case of Megan Meier, a 13 year-old girl who committed suicide after a series of nasty internet exchanges with who she believed to be her online boyfriend, but was actually a hoax perpetrated by Lori Drew, the mother of one of Meier's classmates. It was certainly a tragedy and Drew is certainly a nasty person, but as Orin Kerr points out on the Volokh Conspiracy, the indictment, which was brought in Federal Court in Los Angeles, seems to be a bit of a stretch.

In a story that made all the local rounds, kids are sharing inappropriate pictures via their camera phones. I actually blogged on a somewhat related Public Service Announcement back in February regarding kids not posting pictures online. Not surprisingly, kids don't seem to listen.

And finally, John Tierney brings up the real inconvenient truth: that certain brands of environmentalism hurt the world's poor.

VERY nice article on the real inconvenient truth. Not sure why conservatives aren't making people aware that higher food prices and to a lesser extent higher energy prices (two things that the libs are vowing to fight) have been caused by the libs themselves. The article touches on funding going away from ag projects. They make their point with out even talking about how many crops are being sank into "clean/renewable" (inefficient) energy, rather than the food supply and the stomachs of the world's poor.

Rising food/energy prices are currently being caused by inflation??? No Barack, they're caused by increasing scarcity thanks to your party.

where is the republican party to drive these points home? someone aside from ben stein needs to step up and educate the public on what really is happening.
