Freedom of the Press

After starting my July 4th Holiday with a browse of my favorite MSNBC website I came to realize just how much freedom of the press means to me.

I can't imagine that if I lived in any other country there would be so many 'intriguing' stories to be read in the news.

For instance:

1. Students get X-rated surprise in class DVD


In this story a teacher made an end-of-school-year video for each of students. Unfortunately, she forgot to remove a clip of her having sex. What an education each student got! Melanie, I put this in here for you. Aren't you glad you didn't make a video for each of your students this year?


2. Police: Arizona woman led sons on crime spree



Here you can read all about how to get your house payment and car payments made
by driving the get-away car for your pre-teen boys. I can imagine what
these boy's chore charts look like: Monday - Rob a Bank / Tuesday - Steal
Cell Phone / Wednesday - Take Candy From a Baby.

3. Dognapper Demands Sex


This is just WRONG for so many reasons. Maybe the thing that bothered me
most . .. the dog's clothes!

4. Father Says He Shot Sons for Refusing Chores

Let's just say that each of my boys have been made aware of these new
consequences for not doing chores. Also, I noted that maybe my 20+ year
old children should MOVE OUT!

Ah . . . Freedom of the Press. It's just one more beautiful part of this holiday!

OMGosh! This is maybe a new reason for me read news. I typically stay away from the news, just because of all the negativity. I guess I was just looking at it through the wrong perspective...humor, my new eyes!

Oh man...1st: Not such a good idea for that teacher's job security. 2nd: Maybe her students had driven her to insanity hence the reason for NOT PREVIEWING it before giving it to them! I feel like this might be the students' fault... ;)
