Cornealious Anderson actually got time served in the Missouri case where the state never told him when to report to jail on a robbery charge.

I’m sincerely shocked they didnt throw the book at this brother.

Davion Henry wants a family so he can get out of the foster care system that’s held him for 15 years.  A heartbreaking but also heartwarming story of a young man who knows God hasnt given up on him.

WWE star comes out as gay.

What else would he come out as?  A socialist?  Its a dumb headline.  Important moment, dumb headline.

Very interesting story on a mentally disabled couple fighting for their right to live together because they’re now married.

Though you have to get to the bottom of the article to find it, and that’s difficult let me tell you, there is at least one young man in Steubenville, Ohio with morals, decency, and sense.

Was this reporter fired for wearing and embracing her natural hair?

Not only is this an interesting article but for one of the first time probably since the internet existed, the comments are overwhelmingly supportive and eloquent. I’m utterly shocked.

I dont understand

Can someone tell me why in every article I see about the nurse who died in London it mentions she is of Indian origin? I dont understand the significance. She is a human being who committed suicide, possibly with a horrible prank as a trigger, that’s what’s important. Origin is important too I know but not in this story. Or am I missing something?

Why does the Duchess of Cambridge’s pregnancy make me want to write Hotch/Prentiss AU royal baby fic? Doubt I will but funny thoughts have been floating through my head for days.

What the fuck is the story with the shirtless FBI Agent? I would feel so much better if they were just talking about Derek Morgan.

A Chicago Tribune article says Tom Hanks slips from nice guy rep with F bomb drop on TV. OK, I know it was an accident that he said “fuck” on Good Morning America of all places but he was telling a story (well imitating someone in a story) and quickly apologized. It doesnt bother me one bit. What bothers me is the “ZOMG what?” the media outlets are having about it. Its a fuckin word. Its just a word. People say it all day everyday, even “nice” people. That’s the problem in this country sometimes, putting such value and shock value especially, on something that means next to nothing. I am sure no one’s day was destroyed by Tom Hanks saying fuck. Let;s forget about it and get back to real issues and problems.
