Faulty reports inflamed reaction to Florida shooting

Trayvon martin's supposed gold teeth, marijuana use, and facebook status updates could also be attributed to the fact that he was a 17 year old kid trying to fit in with peers. But, why am I not surprised they're automatically attributed to signs of being in a gang by the people who post on these boards? I have a 17 year old nephew who has been talked to for his hyperbolic facebook posts. (Maybe now those discussions should include, "Don't say that on facebook. A complete stranger who's never seen that post may shoot you and you'll deserve it!) I'm so tired of these "facts" being brought up. What does finding a baggie of pot in his locker weeks prior have to do with him deserving to die? I don't get it. The man that shot him has a record of assaulting a police officer. I'm completely perplexed by the people who are defending him.

Sound Off: It appears two people are living in trailers parked on Massachusetts Street in front of S

Yes, please- if you are going to correct someone's grammar or spelling, you should probably make sure you're using the correct spelling yourself.

Missing student told relatives of ‘creepy,’ drunken stranger

Here is a link to suggest the story to CNN. I'm pretty sure they've given it zero coverage so far.

As number of Pearl Harbor veterans dwindles, area survivors hope to keep lessons of history alive

I'm not sure the men who served in the military during WWII really appreciate being referred to as a "dying breed" but other than that, it was an interesting article.

KC police searching for missing 10-month-old

This story needs to be front and center instead of tucked away where no one is seeing it. Getting this little girl's face seen by as many people as possible can hopefully bring her home safely. PLEASE, LJW! There is no other news on the front page as important as this.

Is Physicist Stephen Hawking Overrated?

Wait. What? What is happening? Is this a joke? This guy's questioning the relevance of Hawking? I'm beside myself. This is a joke, right?

Who is most responsible for ensuring public school children eat a healthy lunch?

I checked "other" because although I ultimately believe that the responsibility falls to the parent, I think it should be parents and schools working together. If there are days when the parent isn't able to pack a lunch for the child (no time, not home, etc)- the alternative at school should be as healthy as possible.
That said, since all parents have a different idea of what is healthy and what is not (see plastics argument above), the final responsibility is the parents'. Personally, I would rather my child eat a salad off of a plastic plate than some other unhealthy meal off of a "safer" plate.

‘The Rachel Maddow Show’ coming to Lawrence's Free State Brewery; Owner Chuck Magerl responds to questions

Judging from this comment, I assume you know nothing about the owner of Tellers. Or you'd probably not frequent that restaurant either.

Thanks for posting this. I had heard about it but wasn't sure of the time.
