Three parents were arrested last week because their children had been truant too many times, officials said Wednesday. The consequences for parents arrested for their child's truancy include up to one year in county jail and/or a $2,000 fine for each child not in compliance. "Sometimes we have to reinforce the idea that it is a crime to not send your child to school," said Chief Deputy DA Karen Bell. "We don't want to take that route, but some parents force our hand and give us no other choice but to file criminal charges."Read more »

If you haven't heard, the ethically questionable web host known as GoDaddy is supporting SOPA. In addition to their terrible customer service and elephant-killing CEO, GoDaddy is backing the bill that wants to cripple your internet as if it's some sort of moral obligation.

If you didn't get around to ditching them already, there's no time like the present.Read more »

You'd think the world's self-proclaimed richest country, with an agricultural sector heavily regulated to secure Norwegian self-sufficiency of food, would never experience shortages. Wrong. Right now, we are experiencing a butter shortage in Norway.
