Nothing left for this one but WTF
My last post to this blog is dated May 31. On Jun 1 my husband suffered a serious injury, one that has required inpatient therapy, which still continues, and requires my being with him almost all of my waking hours. I am just now trying to carve out a few e...

The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth
On May 20, an editorial was printed in the Keene, New Hampshire's Sentinel . Titled " State's sex-offender registry overreaches ,” it says much that is good and grounded in facts. Its primary thesis is that inclusion on a public sex offender registry is pun...

Sex offender alert: get those bumper stickers off that window!
~~by Shelly This will sound like my friend Lenore Skenazy at Free-Range Kids , but honestly, this has just gone too far. Besides being poorly written and edited--it says "several police departments" and identifies none; it uses "sick" when it mean "stick"-F...

When is free speech not free?
~~by Shelly We know we can't yell fire in a crowded theater. Or incite to riot. Or threaten the president. What about gloating on air at the death of someone we don't even know because he is a registered sex offender? What about encouraging hate-mongering a...

I want to title this WTF but I'll settle for What the Hell?

"We have to say you can't go out and kill sex offenders, but .... you really should"
This opinion piece  masquerading as a public safety announcement has mastered the art of double-speak to a high degree. The stated purpose of the piece is to inform their reading public that they will be publishing names and information on all registrants w...
