Little Brandon Williams did not have an easy or long life, due to his mother, Diane Marsh. This beautiful little boy was only allowed to grace this earth for five short years before he was murdered. What separates Brandon from the thousands of other children killed because of child abuse is that Brandon also had autism. Autism is a developmental disability for which there is no cure. Autism impairs language and communication, social interaction and is often characterized with restricted and repetitive behavior. Individuals with autism are prone to emotional outbursts and inappropriate behavior. It takes a strong parent with a strict therapy regime to combat the symptoms of autism. Diane Marsh was not such a parent. Unless you count torture, abuse, starvation, drug over dose and burning as a strict therapy regime.
We just had a pretty heated debate going on last week about the perils of drunk driving, personal responsibility and whether or not being impaired by drugs or alcohol makes a person less responsible for an accident that causes another person to lose their life. I think the reason the argument of a certain person got so frustrating for people like myself who believe being drunk or high is a piss poor excuse for taking a life is the fact that that other person didn’t understand the collateral damage that come with something that terrible.
Perhaps this story will make the point a little clearer.
ANDERS TO SPEND 98 YEARS IN PRISON, JURY: GUILTY OF ALL 10 CHILD PORNOGRAPHY CHARGES
by Janet Jacobs
Corsicana Daily Sun
Navarro Mills, TX – A Navarro County jury found Kevin Wayne Anders, 35, guilty of 10 counts of possession of child pornography after about an hour of deliberations Thursday, and District Judge James Lagomarsino followed that up with ten 10-year sentences, to be served consecutively. It was his first felony conviction.
Possession of child pornography is a third-degree felony, with punishments ranging from two to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine for each count. Anders will receive credit for the time he has already served in the Navarro County jail since his arrest in September 2007, leaving him 98 years and four months.
Spring – the flowers are in bloom, the birds are singing and it seems as if the entire world is waking up from a long winters nap. For a lot of us, spring is a time to either take a vacation (spring break anyone?) or plan a vacation. In June 2006, that is exactly what Torgny Hellgren of Sweden did, he took a vacation to the Greek island of Crete. Some rest, relaxation and a little sun, a little booze, maybe a woman, exactly what every red-blooded young man could want. While on Crete, Hellgren met Christine Schurrer, 32, of Germany. According to Hellgren, they had an extremely passionate four or five day affair. But vacations do not last forever and Hellgren returned to Sweden with fond memories of the Isle of Crete and Christine Schurrer.
This is thirty-eight year old Daniel Axtell of Santa Ana, California. Daniel is a Teacher and is was employed at Talbert Middle School in the City of Huntington Beach, California. For just as many Teachers that are out there teaching, you will get just as many answers when you ask the lot of them, “What made you choose Teaching as a profession?” Some will tell you that they entered the field because of the impact which they wanted to have on the lives of young children. They may further explain that they wanted to “make a difference”. Others might tell you that they have a passion for the course material which they teach and especially enjoy introducing the beautiful wonders of, let’s say, the double helix, or the brilliant prose of Shakespearian sonnets, to the eager and malleable minds of young students. Some teachers may even tell you that they were attracted to the field simply for practical reasons, such as good fringe benefits, competitive pay, or the entire summer off.

I’ve been here on PYSIH for a few months now and my time here has caused me to take inventory of my life. I used to get upset because I couldn’t figure out why my Pug, Gump, kept getting worms (finally I came to the conclusion that he does as many Pugs do and eats poop). I felt imbecilic because I couldn’t balance my checkbook to save my life ( I still can’t balance it, so I just leave it to the husband).
Today is the day when Christians all over the world celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ Of Nazareth. Now whether or not you believe Jesus was the Son of God, one has to admit that while he was preaching he said a lot of beautiful, intelligent things. A scribe once tried to trick him into blaspheming by asking:
“What commandment is the foremost of all?”
“The foremost is;
‘Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is one Lord; and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’
“The second is this;
‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’
