I can't read the news anymore...

...without wondering why local officials don't label domestic and sexual violence an epidemic in our state.

Everyday I check to get the local headlines, and everyday there is at least one headline about a recent domestic or sexual assault or murder.

Yesterday it was about the doctor who assaulted a number of patients yet is somehow avoiding jail time (wtf??) and today it's about a recent DV stabbing.

I'm sure I'm not the only person who notices this...but really - are we that jaded?

ugh. I know how you feel. I just read the results of a forum on Vets returning from Iraq and Afghanistan and the significant increases in domestic violence and suicide.
it was in MarketWatch, of all things. I should post the link.

Or maybe we should have a silly animal video post or something :)
