Local story...
17 year old guy gets on a public transit bus with three friends.
He approaches a stranger and demands that the guy hand over his iPod.
Stranger refuses.
17 year old stabs him in the chest... and the guy dies on the spot.
This happened two years ago.
He was tried as an adult and sentenced to life (min 10 yrs) today.
What kind of fucked up life has someone got to live for 17 years to end up killing someone on a bus for an iPod before he's even old enough to vote?
Personally... I think that because he was a minor when he committed the crime... his parents (or legal guardians) should have been charged with "negligence, causing death" in addition to the kid being charged with murder... and that's what it was... murder most foul.
I'll tell you this... If one of my boys commits a violent crime before he's 18, I'm going to think it's my fault.
No question. None.

It isn't who you know,
Or even what you know.
It's that you don't smell bad.
Seriously.

You what I'd like?
I'd like to "use" a really good laptop... for a week or so...
Just to see what changes about my experience.
I'm using a Latitude D610 that my office issues me...
I saw it advertised locally for $299.00 LOL.
I tell myself that I'd love to have a mac-book-pro...
but that's really just on "spec".
And besides the m-b-p, I have no idea what else consititues a "great laptop".
I've dabbled with the notion of the solid state "little" sub-notebooks that run full-on OS's...
I wasn't all that impressed with the Air when I goofed around with one in the apple store last year.
sigh.
laptop letdown...
