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.

More on Justin at WCCO including a video.

Collin Powell

Rachel Maddow showed several segments of an interview with Collin Powell last night. I thought it was very interesting.

Here she asks him what he thinks of the GOP Budget alternative that was put out yesterday. A transcript of the interview and other clips can be found here. I am currently reading through the GOP budget proposal and hope to have my take on it out this weekend.
