    in small print, but the front page headline is so awful for this kid -
    Libel may be hard to prove, but this one seems offered on a silver plate.

    What the hell ever happened to rules of journalism that were drilled over and over into our heads in college ??? How do they look at themselves in the mirror?

    My husband came home from work yesterday and told me the guys on the job were showing this picture around yesterday - I told him that this guy wasn't who they were looking for, we were waiting to see.

    "No," he told me, "so-and-so on the job-site has a brother in who's a cop and he told him that that is the guy they are looking for, probably the one that was arrested -- they don't tell the press this stuff ..."

    Yeah, right they DO tell the press this stuff and that's why so many reporters, local and national were red-faced last night.

    Women are 51% of the population yet are represented in congress by barely 17%! Until our representation reflects the population, we risk sliding backwards .....
