Weekly Mashup Stage 22

I'll show you mine if you'll show me yours!

Pennsylvania woman charged in deaths of infants: "Michele Kalina, who has been in jail since she was arrested August 9 on charges relating to the discovery of the infants' remains at her home in Reading, was charged Monday with criminal homicide and five counts of "abuse of corpse" and is being held without bail, Adams said in a statement released by his office."

TRICK OR TREAT: Just When Is It?: For when you just don't understand Halloween and assume its all about being anti-God.

Woman Kills Baby For Interrupting Farmville Session: "Alexandra V. Tobias says her three-month old child, Dylan Lee Edmondson, had been crying while she was trying to play the popular Facebook casual game. This angered Tobias, who told authorities that she shook the baby, had a cigarette to calm herself down, then shook him again. It's believed he "may have hit his head during the shaking"."

Congolese women raped on Congo-Angola border, U.N. officials say: "The United Nations said the women reported they were held for nearly two weeks in early October and raped. The U.N. said three people in the group were killed, including two men and a woman, who died after being repeatedly raped. Those who survived and were released then returned to the Congo in the nude and with no belongings, according to the United Nations." (I'm curious as to why is it that when rape in that part of the world is mentioned male victims are almost never brought up and when they do it usually just a brief mention.)

Not one post but two posts by Melissa McEwan on Living While Fat.

NC State Bar Panel Backs Anti-Bias Language: The ethics committee of the NC Bar Association is looking to change their rules of conduct to include language stating that lawyers should not discriminate while working. I thought such language would be in there already...

It’s hard to be a stepmother: Apparently being a step parent is an excuse for abusing a step child.

Due to going out of town this coming Friday (and will not return until Nov. 14) more than likely there will be no Weekly Mashup. See you on the other side.
