The Rising Cost – Part 1

September 30th, 2010
Justin Aaberg was only 15 years old. He had come out to his mother when he was 13, and while on the outside he seemed to have a great life going, on the inside he was a tormented storm. LGBT students at the Anoka-Hennepin School that Justin attended were, like is so frequently the case, easy targets as other students, and even teachers turned a blind eye. It finally got to a point where he just couldn?t handle it any more and feeling he had no where to turn to for help, he hanged himself in his room. Justin was the sixth student from the school to take his own life in the last 2 years and most are believed to have been the result of homophobic bulling.

More on Justin at WCCO including a video.

Tax Problems

Obama seems to be plagued these days with administration picks with tax problems. While it means that the vetting process his team is doing needs some fine tuning, it begs the question? what are the odds that 3 of the people he has chosen out of the Washington elite have tax problems. It makes me wonder wonder how wide spread tax issues are among our law makers on both sides of the political isle.
