Arm the rebels?

WTF has the “no fly zone” in Libya morphed into now?  Obama is turning into moron GW in front of our eyes!!  According to this story from BBC , “US President Barack Obama has said he does not rule out arming the rebels seeking to overthrow Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi.” So we went from […]

Good article this morning in the NY Times about teen sexting and the potential pitfalls – especially of picture sexting.  Those pitfalls obviously exist for the person sending the picture, but there are also potentially  severe penalties for unwitting teens who pass the picture on to others, such as being labeled – and needing to […]

Bad cop – no doughnut
