Face Book

So I've been on Face Book for maybe a month. And I have joined two causes. The first is "Justice for Tyler McMillion".

Today his dad pled guilty to second degree murder. He is going to testify in his wife's trial and after that he will be sentenced. This boy's dad and his stepmother tied him outside to a tree to disipline him. (Haven't heard what the boy did to deserve it.) It was on one of the hottest days we had last year. And the air was filled with smoke from the fire near the Outer Banks. He was tied to the tree all night and most of the next day. Late in the afternoon the stepmother called 911. He died from dehydration and heat stoke. They say his body was bitten by insects. It made me sick when I heard it and I have not forgotten him. Last Friday was the one year anniversary of his death.

The other cause I have joined is the Fire David Letterman website. I think the "jokes" he made at the expence of Sarah Palin and her two daughters is a slam at women everywhere. Imus was fired from CBS for saying "Nappy". I agree he should have been fired. Now I think Dave should be fired also.

It is time to stand up and let the sponsers of his show know how upset we are over his remarks. No wonder there is so much violence against women and girls in this country. If you are interested there is a website here.

Amen! I think about the little boy tied to the tree all the time. I saw his dad on the news this morning. So sad!

I couldn't agree with you more! I hadn't heard about that story...makes me cringe! I just do NOT understand people!

I didn't know you were on Facebook! If I knew your last name, I would have befriended you already! Befriend me, won't you? Pretty please!

I will certainly join both causes. I hope that step mother gets convicted, and I won't even say what punishment I think she really deserves!

As for Dave, I agree, he should be fired!!!!

How dreadful for that little boy. He is lucky to be gone, if that was his life.
I detest David Letterman, an ugly vain talentless man.
