Well, I was wondering if we were going to see this. It is difficult to see how the parents can escape responsibility, and the ones who appear to be in complete denial look like they need to be taken upside the head with a mackerel.

It boils down to parental guidance. There just doesn't seem to be any. I hope the parents of the older girl get a lesson along with their daughter.

Yet another comment on current events that doesn't name names or point fingers (at least explicitly).

This is pretty comprehensive.

This looks like a very late version of the Great Anathema, originally a liturgical rite practiced in the early Middle Ages (9th-11th C or so), often in conjunction with the "humiliation of the relics" in which the relics of whatever saints were in the church were dumped out of the reliquaries and publicly scolded.  Both the Anathema and the humiliatio were used by a monastery after some secular injustice was committed against a monastery as an appeal to divine justice.  Both became less common after strong secular authorities capable of providing justice arose.

In 1523-24, Henry VIII was raiding the Scottish borders in an effort to get the Scots to agree to a marriage between James V and Princess Mary, and to kick out the regent Duke of Albany.   James was a minor, and his mother and Albany were engaged in a power struggle, so there was very little secular redress available for an aggravated archbishop.

My dog really likes steamed broccoli. Raw, not so much. It turns out that he is right keen on raw cauliflower. I may regret it in a bit since he usually hangs out in his crate which is right at my feet.

At least it's good for him.

Dear Fox News:

When you put captions on the screen speaking of how the highest court in Illinois struck down a particular law, they are *not* the "IL SCOTUS". That court is the Supreme Court of Illinois, for which "SCOTUS" is utterly inappropriate.

When the state in question is New York, the Supreme Court is not the highest court in the state; that honor goes to the Court of Appeals. In either case, the "NY SCOTUS" is equally absurd.

SCOTUS is the Supreme Court Of The United States. There is only one.

The offending law was Illinois' "Amazon Sales Tax Law". Illinois found it to be unconstitutional; it was noted that a New York court found a similar state law passed constitutional muster, so the two references covered both sides of the item.

I'm prepared to accept stupidity over malice for this, but the stupid is still stupid.

The anthrax vaccine was probably responsible. My sympathies. (I think that's still a fairly old vaccine. Could be next gen ones will be better.)

So, the editor in chief has "apologized," the list of affiliates has been sanitized (but they can't clean the cache), and DNLee gets to co-author some feature content.

I was hoping for something much more candid.  Let's see how they follow through.
