Just out of curiosity . . .

Just out of curiosity . . . how many of you have seen a news report about this:

Megan Williams tortured and raped by six people for at least a week

It happened several weeks ago, and the first I heard about it was today, on Facebook (of all places). Is it really not getting media coverage? Or did I just miss it somehow. In any case, it's disgusting and heartbreaking and infuriating and . . . well, just read it, if you hadn't already heard, okay? I do not want to live in a world that allows things like this to happen. Of course, it's just one small example of the myriad horrible things people do to one another in this world. Yeah, I know there are wars going on right now, too. Somehow, it needs to change. I wish I had an answer as to how to do that, but right now, I just feel like crying. Also, I must admit to being a bit curious as to why the media thinks OJ Simpson and Michael Vicks are more newsworthy.

I read about it on CNN.com when she was rescued, and they reported updates for at least a couple of days after, as the disgusting pieces of shit were charged, and her mother spoke out. (And bravo for speaking out about this crime).

Between them posting news of that story, and this one, I am encouraged to see more attention being paid to women who aren't Caucasian.
