Twelve Year Olds Aren’t Adults, They Just Aren’t

If you are from southeast Wisconsin, you are probably aware of two twelve year old middle school female students who tried to kill another female classmate by stabbing her 19 times…with the intention of impressing a fictional online character.

Dear Mr. President:

It is apparent that the Republican party continues to marginalize what can best be described as your historical victory this past November.

Under construction by contractors with top-secret clearances, the blandly named Utah Data Center is being built for the National Security Agency. A project of immense secrecy, it is the final piece in a complex puzzle assembled over the past decade. […]
