So true.
 
TURN OFF THE NEWS - Saw this on Facebook and I think God has a point... I mean, Morgan Freeman.

Morgan Freeman's brilliant take on what happened yesterday :

"You want to know why. This may sound cynical, but here's why.

It's because of the way the media reports it. Flip on the news and watch how we treat the Batman theater shooter and the Oregon mall shooter like celebrities. Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris are household names, but do you know the name of a single victim of Columbine? Disturbed
people who would otherwise just off themselves in their basements see the news and want to top it by doing something worse, and going out in a memorable way. Why a grade school? Why children? Because he'll be remembered as a horrible monster, instead of a sad nobody.

CNN's article says that if the body count "holds up", this will rank as the second deadliest shooting behind Virginia Tech, as if statistics somehow make one shooting worse than another. Then they post a video interview of third-graders for all the details of what they saw and heard while the shootings were happening. Fox News has plastered the killer's face on all their reports for hours. Any articles or news stories yet that focus on the victims and ignore the killer's identity? None that I've seen yet. Because they don't sell. So congratulations, sensationalist media, you've just lit the fire for someone to top this and knock off a day care center or a maternity ward next.

You can help by forgetting you ever read this man's name, and remembering the name of at least one victim. You can help by donating to mental health research instead of pointing to gun control as the problem. You can help by turning off the news."

I second that. I get regular updates on the web although it is not perfect at least I am not bothered by some commentators opinion.

I agree. He should have used more common sense and left this one for the barbershop. At least he would still be employed.

Yesterday we went to Parcha Sweets for the first time to try out the cupcakes. We have normally gone to The Flying Cupcake for such treats but decided to try some place different. We had the coconut cup cake and the carrot cake. While both were generally good they seem to lack the moistness of the ones served at the Flying Cupcake. While the price was generally the same the product slightly lesser. I think they have potential if the continue to work on the product.

Excellent work. My high school daughter had a problem with her transmission leaking. They came and pick up the car in the early afternoon and had the problem diagnosed and repaired by 4pm the same day. The cost plus towing was very reasonable.

Bought a variety of cupcakes for our daughters birthday's and had to go back 2 weeks later for a 2nd helping. Everything was great. The only thing I would change is the Red Velvet Cupcakes have 2-many chocolate chips in them.
