Un Dia del Death

First, and most importantly, condolences to the friends and families of the two journalists who were killed today.  I don’t really expect it to lead to reasonable gun laws, because if the slaughter of dozens of little kids isn’t enough, I don’t know why two journalists would be, except maybe the  fact that they  were actually shot on camera, and the governor of Virginia and President Obama have both responded to the incident by calling for tougher gun laws.

If it does lead to tougher gun laws, I’ll be happy, but I’m not holding my breath.

Just read about a very weird case.  An 18 year old girl is being charged with manslaughter because her ‘boyfriend’ (he was really more of a cyberbuddy – they’d met a couple of times in real life but they were apparently texting each other constantly) committed suicide.  Apparently, when police were looking through his phone, they saw a whole slew of texts from her saying ‘go ahead and do it’ and ‘don’t chicken out now, you’ve always got some lame excuse..’

Judging from the comments under the article, I’m expressing the minority opinion here, but I don’t think she should be charged with anything.  Sure, she’s a horrible person, but if being a horrible person was a crime, there’d be more people in prison than out.  I hope she never has children and I feel sorry for her future boyfriends -and there will be future boyfriends, physically she is not unattractive – but I don’t think she commited any crime.

It was loser boyfriend’s choice to kill himself.  He’ll have to live with…oh, wait, no, he  won’t.
