Just a quick note on two things that came through my reliable RSS today.
The first is the vote count on the bailout plan. Looks like the Bush and McCain backed bailout plan wasn't fully vetted (and really was there any time to do that at all?) within their own party. Notice the apparent disparity between Reps and Dems voting (link to full roll call on the vote) on the package:
And the 2nd thing to catch my attention was the story of the bodies of two children found in a freezer in Maryland. That's not the only thing that caught my attention. At first I was disgusted that this sort of thing happens and then the rest of the header really made me go "huh??". "The frozen bodies of two children are found in a house in Maryland, US by police investigating reports of child abuse." Way to handle that child abuse case Department of Children's Services. If the police are involved in an investigation, that leads me to believe there were past complaints. If not, wouldn't social services be showing up at the house first? I suppose the other side of this coin is that without proof someone is innocent but if little johnny or jane keeps showing up to daycare with a broken jaw, isn't that more a case of "where there's smoke there's fire"?
