Some Comments on Our Twisted Culture

I like this post by Gerald Van der Leun regarding Bradley Manning -- or should I call him Bradley Womanning now?

Lloyd Marcus wonders what's going on with America's values.

Taleeb Starkes' column is titled If G.W. Bush Had a Son, He'd Look Like Christopher Lane.

A 10 year old lemonade stand owner was robbed by another boy at BB-gunpoint (let's ban BB guns now), and the victim has been honored for his entrepreneurial spirit. He is a capitalist in the making, and his parents should be proud. But the parents of the thief should be locked up with their son.

And Sandy Banks reminds us that killings that don't make the headlines deserve our outrage, too -- the epidemic of black-on-black murders that the media doesn't want to report because it's politically incorrect to do so.

Sick crimes like these have been going on for years, but it's only when they happen so frequently, senselessly, and brutally, and when the criminals are so young and so amoral, do they finally make the news and wake people out of their apathy.
