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.

This week in Twitter

I’ve joined the ranks of Twitters for the last week or so and it is quickly becoming an obsession. In those few days I have begun following about 350 people and have gained a following of 150. If you don’t know, Twitter is like a cross between an instant messenger service and bloging. Your limited to only 140 characters per post and is sometimes called micro-blogging.
In the last week one of the things I have learned from Twitter is…

That@johnleonardo and a few others seem to have some odd obsession with President Obama’s teleprompter usage, even though it doesn’t appear as if he has used it any more than other Presidents before him. It might be that they are seeing it more because Obama actually talks to people on a regular basis. The have even created a fake twitter persona called @BOTeleprompter.
@michellemalkin: seems to have become the first celebrity to ever reply to one of my tweets. I’m not sure exactly how I feel about that. This is how it went.

@michellemalkinVery effective that almost all GOP house members have text of Dodd/Treasury/Obama provision in poster form/on paper. Driving the point home.
@vastvariety: @michellemalkin If it’s all Dodd and Obama’s fault what was Paulson and Bush responsible for in September when the first money went to AIG?
@michellemalkin:@vastvariety They all have dirty hands, and I have said so many, many times.
@vastvariety: @michellemalkin They do Indeed.
