Some news stories that caught my eye...
Facebook Murder-For-Hire Are people really this dumb? Did this girl actually think that she could get away with posting an offer to pay someone to kill her "baby daddy" on her facebook wall and no one would notice? The sad part is, even though by the time he actually was killed, she was behind bars already. Which means either someone else took on the "I'll pay you a stack to kill him" bit, or some idiot didn't realize she was already behind bars and needed the money.
Flash Mobs Marc Lamont Hill, you are a moron. There are so many ways in which you are dead wrong that I can't even believe the Inquirer published this nonsense. All that aside though, my main argument is this: What about my right to walk down the streets of this city and not get nervous when I walk past a pack of teenagers? Doesn't that count for anything?
The Eagles I hate living in this area during football season. Eagles fans drive me crazy. They are the most fair-weather fans I've ever seen. One good game? Everyone loves them. One bad game? Everyone hates them. And now, with expectations of a "perfect" season after all these free agents they just picked up, a lost game is going to be horrific. It almost makes me want to move. I don't understand it. If you're going to be a fan, be a fan. I lived in Pittsburgh for 15 months. Now those are fans. Win or lose, they love their Steelers. Philly fans are just obnoxious.
9/11 Responders This makes me want to cry. These first responders saved countless lives in the days following 9/11/01. Now you're going to sit there in your big offices and pretend like they don't exist? How dare you!
Brain-eating Amoebas GROOOOSSS!!!!!
Michelle Bachman Really? You, single-handedly, will control the crude oil market and cause those prices to drop? You, single-handely, are an idiot.
