Please Kill Me

It's now apparently strange that a woman carries money with her.

It's apparently a crime for an adult woman to cross state lines without informing her parents and husband-to-be.

The "kidnapping story" was operative for 3 hours in reality in the wee hours of the morning but operative for a week in the alternative reality of cable news.

CNN now plans to become the 24 hour local news channel, nationalizing every local interest story. Car chases, missing young white women, cats up trees, ...

... and, what must the families of the "4 soldiers killed in Iraq today" think of this being CNN's "top story of the day" and every day... the CNN anchor is wondering if maybe, just maybe, there could be federal charges filed...federal charges? for what?
