Bad news

But not unexpected. Looks like they found Nevaeh Buchanan's body.

Every ten years, or so, an abortion provider gets murdererd. Stories such as Nevaeh's are a tad more common. There's been a lot of hand wringing about who is responsible for "creating" the atmosphere that caused Tiller's murderer to become who he was and do what he did. Pandagon devoted countless posts to the issue. They were pretty much similar to Obermann's opinion on the subject.

MSNBC Host Keith Olbermann went much further, flatly blaming Fox News Host Bill O'Reilly for inciting the murder of Tiller. Olbermann noted that O'Reilly aired 28 stories on Tiller, with such statements as: "Killing babies in America. That's the subject of this evening's "Talking Points Memo."

How about we show just a fraction of that concern for the hows and whys we create monsters who prey on our most vulnerable? Can we assign blame to Hollywood, that presents a hypersexualized image of youth? How about the creators of children's clothing?
