Amber Alert For Devon Davis

An Amber alert was issued for a two year old named Devon Davis, in Texas, on Tuesday. His family moved there about a week ago. According to the statement given by his mom, April Davis, she was taking a nap, and when she woke up, the door was open, and her son was missing. At this point, police have begun calling the search a "recovery", rather than a rescue. Not very encouraging.

This is Devon. The FBI is now involved, so if you see him, please alert local law enforcement.

Update: This is so sad; the little guy was found in a lake. He appears to have drowned. No one is sure how he got there.

Colorado Adoptive Mother Who Misplaced Her Children Goes To Prison

This case, from Colorado, is interesting because Kansas, next door to Colorado has a very similar case. In 2000, Linda and Edward Bryant adopted two boys, Edward and Austin, who have not been seen by anyone since late 2003 or early 2004, yet, until last year, they collected various incomes from the state for each child. No one knows where Edward and Austin are, and Edward and Linda are not telling, but Colorado threw the book at both of them for fraud and theft. Edward's court date is in April of this year, but Linda was sentenced last week to fortytwo years in prison. "In her plea agreement, Bryant pleaded guilty to 4 counts of Felony Theft, 2 counts of Conspiracy to Commit Theft, and 48 counts of Attempting to Influence a Public Servant."....KRDO. To the right is Austin's age progressed photo.

In Kansas, we have a couple of lovebirds named Doug and Valerie Herrman, who did the same thing with their adopted son. In 1993, they adopted Adam, and some time during the fall of 1999, they "lost" him. They told the rest of their family one untrue story, Adam's biological family another untrue story, and never once bothered to inform the state, when they got Adam's stipend checks, that Adam was no longer living with them. They also never filed a missing persons report with the police. They also never cooperated with law enforcement in any of the efforts to find Adam, which took place in 2009, when Adam's biological sister finally discovered he was missing and reported it. To the right is Edwin Bryant's age progressed picture.

Doug and Valerie Herrman initially entered a plea of "not guilty" to charges of theft and fraud. They changed it to "guilty" when it looked as though they might lose, in a trial involving a jury of their peers. They also thought they would avoid going to prison if they admitted that they are disgusting thieves. Their lawyer had it all worked out, too. But then they learned the hard way, a day or two before court, that judges are under no obligation to accept a guilty plea. He sent Valerie to prison for seven months, and Doug to prison for nine months. He was quite outraged about Adam. But here's the thing: how can two states that are so close together have such different penalties for the same crime? Shouldn't Doug and Valerie Herrman stay in prison for fortytwo years, too?

Adam Herrman, and an age progressed picture.

Do Racoons Have Opposeable Thumbs?

The latest questions for Siri have certainly been interesting. I still get a steady amount of "Siri demonic", Siri Satan", and "Siri 666", but for a change of pace, Siri was asked, "How tall is Rick Santorum?" The answer is 6' 4". Also, among the Siri searches was a request to see Siri naked! Hahaha! There will be no pics of Siriunsun naked, because the picture on the right is the closest to adult content I am willing to publish! Asking for naked pictures.....geesh! Where do some people think they are? Walmart? There was also a query of, "Siri, do racoons have opposeable thumbs?" The answer is no. They do not. But they are very able to manipulate locking mechanisms, and in studies done with racoons in captivity, have been shown to be able to remember how to spring different locks three years after only doing it once! That's pretty impressive. They can also open doors with their paws, turn on water with their paws, and use their paws to pour cereal out of boxes while you are at work. They never remember to turn the water off after they have turned it on, though.

My Cat Looks Just Like This

Petition To Inform Governer Browncrack That Education Is Important

This is not really much of a surprise, but Kansas governer Sam Brownback has proposed tax cuts to corperations, (does he think corperations are people, too?) and to the wealthiest citizens in the state, and has told the rest of us that the formula for funding for public schools can no longer be supported and he wants to continue to slash education. The truth is, he cannot afford to ignore the schools, and he should insist upon more money for them, not less. Kansans United In Voice And Spirit has put together a petition, and this is the link to it.

Private Message

Hey Lightlilly, lowlevel government drudge in Marysville Kansas; just a little knowledge of the etymologies of your first and last name should clue you in to who you are, but if not, don't worry, someone will write letter or petition requesting that you clean up your act. Consider this your warning. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT, ever ask anyone to divulge personal information that is designed to remain unavailable to folks of your ilk ever again. If you cannot do your job without overstepping medical and and other confidentiality bounderies or violating the law, then perhaps it is time for the community to find someone who can. Consider this your warning, Lightlilly. No one is messing around, here.

One more point I should make, Lightlilly: when you consistantly badger a citizen for personal information about another citizen, and the citizen you badger does not wish to divulge any personal knowledge of another or does not have any personal knowledge of another to divulge, yet you continue to pester and threaten legal action, (!!) it becomes harassment. Harassment is against the law. Threats of legal action to obtain information from someone who is not under oath are also against the law. Unless you want to hear this again, from someone who can force the issue, I suggest you cease and desist.

A Little Boy Got Killed By A Train Today

What a sad day for the family of a nine year old boy in Russell, Kansas today. While playing too close to the train tracks, he was killed by a freight train going from Denver, Colorado to Salina, Kansas. He was pronouced dead at the scene.

Perhaps, in addition to using extra caution in the future and realizing how dangerous being too close to railroad tracks can be, and in addition to making sure all children from now on are never allowed to play too close to train tracks, anyone who reads about this on the internet can be gentle when posting comments about this. This incident is not even a day old, and I have already seen some comments posted under stories about it by people who do not realize that this little boy's parents woke up this morning with a son, and will go to bed without one tonight.

Sky Metalwala's Dad Has Custody

Solomon Metalwala, father of Sky Metalwala, who disappeared in November of 2011 while he was in his mother's care, was granted custody of Sky and his sister, Maille, in court today in Washington. Now that he has custody, he can insist that Sky's mother, Julia Biryukova, give Sky back to him. If she does not, she can be charged with custodial interferance, parental kidnapping, and contempt of court. I hope that Terri Horman and Justin Dipietro are paying attention. When the Horman divorce finally gets to court, Terri will not have any custodial right to her stepson, Kyron, at all. Her estranged husband, Kaine, and Kyron's mother, Desiree young will. Since she was the very last person with custodial rights to care for Kyron, perhaps she can be ordered to return him to his parents. Hopefully, if she does not, she can be forced to testify and jailed for custodial interferance and contempt of court. Hopefully. And whatever will Justin Dipietro do if he is ordered to return his daughter, Ayla Reynolds, to her mother? It would behoove him to testify in such a case, rather than continue to play games with law enforcement. This was never the intended function of family law court anywhere, but in the cases of these missing children, such legal actions could work!

Sierra Lamar

A fifteen year old girl named Sierra Lamar has been missing since Friday morning from Freemont, California, when she was not on the bus, not in class, and nowhere to be found all day. Her cell phone was found about twentyfive miles from her home, with it's battery dead. Her family is working with law enforcement to bring her home. Please keep your eyes open and let the police know if you think you have seen her.

The Link To Kyron's Petition, Again

Here is the link to the petition to the police and prosecuting attorney in Multnomah County, Oregon, one more time. I shared it a few weeks ago, and it has been circulating on the internet for over a month. Kyron Horman has been missing since June 4, 2010, and his community and the rest of the nation would like an update. This may not happen if we are not more aggressive in our request. So far, there are only around four hundred signatures on it, and that is not enough for the amount of time it has been available. Please share it. Kyron needs to be found, before his missing persons case fades into obscurity.

Kansans Who Pray

Sickening. A house session in Topeka started with a Christian prayer. Not a generic prayer, or well wishes toward everyone, Christian and not, but a prejudiced, nasty, christian-slanted, insincere prayer, meant to intimidate anyone who does not see the world from within the confines of Kansas.

Here it is:
"Father James Gordon of St. John Vianney in Maple Hill, delivered the prayer, saying, "We ask you to strengthen our understanding of traditional marriage: one man and one woman. We ask you to bring us back to virtuous morals in society, morals that kept us from killing a child in the womb through abortion.
"We ask you to defend us now in the fight for true religious freedom and freedom of conscience, that seems to be threatened now in the public sphere."....Kansans United In Voice And Spirit

Can anyone say "Pharisee"? As in St. Luke, chapter 18? As in "Hi God. I know I'm better than others, who see and do things differently. That's why Jesus loves me more, and that's why slavery, discrimination, human trafficking, corruption, child pornography, deceiving the general public, and the destruction of the planet at the expense of the poor, and eventaully at the expense of everyone is okay with you, as long as I'm the one who does it. Thankyou for making it okay for me to sin." That's my interpretation of Father Gordon's lawless "prayer", since it was unlawful of him to pray in such an instance, and would have been much more respectful of him to just decline, and "render unto Ceasar that which is Ceasar's, and unto God that which is God's". Our taxes are NOT paid to favor any religion, and Gordon was favoring his own. As for "understanding of traditional marriage", perhaps that could be aided by setting an example of respect, which Kansas did not do today. "Virtuous morals" are something Kansas has never truly had. Neither has the rest of the country, or the rest of the world. We don't need to bring those back, we need to bring those in for the first time! And if Father Gordon is truly worried about "religious freedom being threatened", he needs to shut his mouth. By using his religion as a tool against others, he is a bigger threat to his own religion than any other person's lifestyle or ideas.

Luke 18:11, The Pharisee's Prayer; "The Pharisee stood up and prayed about himself: 'God, I thank you that I am not like other men--robbers, evildoers, adulterers--or even like this tax collector." A few months ago, Mike O'Neal , (R, Kansas) also did some praying and sent some very spiritual emails to others, calling upon his "Jesus" figure to "make Obama's little girls fatherless"! If "Jesus" actually feels that way about Obama's children, or anyone's children, wouldn't the world be a better place without him? Just some food for thought, Kansas!

D'Andre Lane Is Charged With Murder Of Bianca Jones

Surprise, surprise. Bianca Jones's father has been charged with the murder of his daughter, Bianca Jones. She disappeared in early December of 2011, and he reported a carjacking to explain why she went missing on his watch. He had another child, a fifteen year old, in the car with him during the road trip that culminated in the alleged carjacking, and his vehicle was found a few minutes later, (possibly where he parked it?) with Bianca's car seat but without Bianca. All this happened in Detroit, which is kind of a busy spot.....not the type of place one can carjack, pretend to get carjacked, or pretend to babysit, without the notice of other people; or, in legal parlance, eyewitnesses. The prosecuting attorney, Kym Worthy, followed up with all of the eyewitness accounts to events that happened on the morning Bianca was last seen, the best of whom were probably the cadaver dogs who picked up Bianca's scent in her car seat and in her father's home. She looked at all of D'Andre's conflicting statements, and she may have even looked at impromptu pictures garnered from traffic light camaras. And BRAVO, Ms. Worthy! D'Andre Lane is being held accountable for his daughter's disappearance.

Hopefully, this will set a new precedent, and speak to anyone else who would attempt to pull a "Casey Anthony" upon tiring of parenting responsibilities. Our culture needs updated mores concerning to safety of all of our children.

One More Reason To Omit Mitt

I noticed this on another Blog today, and decided to share it here. It's a video describing yet another reason why Mitt Romney does not belong in public office.


Happy Birthday Terri Horman

Happy Birthday Terri! Your incredibly oversized posterior end has taken up space on the planet for forty-two years. Carol and Larry must be very proud. Below are some birthday cupcakes, just for you. They look like, you, too! You could almost look like one of the cupcakes!  I hope you enjoy your day enough to do something human, for a change, and cooperate with law enforcement to help find you missing stepson, Kyron. He's missed two birthdays with family now.

Don't these piggies look like Terri?

Westboro Baptist Church Strikes Again!

This time I can laugh at them. Westboro Baptist Church won't be up to it's usual funerary shenanigans. They have been invited by American Athiests to attend the Reason Rally on March 24, in Washington, D.C. This should be interesting; Westboro Baptist Church and reason are not words that usually occur in the same sentence. Before I moved to Kansas, I only thought that people who carry signs, get in one's face and yell "God hates fags....God hates Jews....God hates you, too!" were either Neonazi lunatics or actors in B movies! I have never seen a straight man as obscessed with gay culture as Fred Phelps, the paster of Westboro Baptist Church, and related to most of the members! It's been speculated that his whole hateful stance is the response to some closet urgings......and perhaps in his wildest dreams, the picture on the left is how he wishes he could look!

This past weekend, Westboro Baptist Church surprised Rick Santorum with the news that God hates him. It seems Santorum was more concerned about what the votors thought of him. Church members were kind enough to carry signs conveying God's hatred of other politicians, too, so perhaps it all balenced out in the end.

Family portrait of the Phelps's of Westboro Baptist Church, of Topeka, Kansas. They are never without their signs!

Newt Gingrich Puts The Hippo In Hypocrite

A commenter on a news forum here in Kansas explained to me, the other day, that Newt Gingrich puts the hippo in hypocrite. That seems about right, and it reminded me of this:

Kinda like a hippo. Hippos are nicer, though.

Then Kansas caucused for Rick Santorum, even though most of religious fundamentalist Kansans are against abortion, and Santorum and his wife opted for a second trimester abortion back in 1996. Santorum is more of a white washed seplachure, though. "White washed" because "white" is his big qualification for presidency that makes certain people want to vote for him.

Mr. Christian

And I wouldn't want to omit Mitt Romney! (hey....Omit Mitt....I like that!) He puts the money in the corperations; because, of course, corperations are people too! Hopefully, he won't attempt to register corperations to vote!

Mitt Romeny's REAL reason to want the presidency.

Siri Search; Leave It To Beaver

Someone asked Siri about Leave It To Beaver today. The question was about who June  Cleaver's sons are. That's easy; they are Theodore, (Beaver) and Wally, played by Jerry Mathers and Tony Dow. This show depicts an American family in the 1950's and early 1960's, before the Equal Rights Amendment was passed, and before we stopped investing in the middle class.

Good Cartoon

If You Missed Church Today

I came across this a couple days ago. With all the new new information about Pat Robertson's position on legalization of marijuana lately, it seems appropos.

Rick Santorum Is White Enough For Kansas

It's official. Rick Santorum is white enough for Kansas. Today, Kansas caucused for him. That's fine; in fact, it was predictable. Something else that's sadly predictable is that none of the people quoted in the article linked above were able to give intelligent reasons why they want Santorum in the White House; they just want him. It's all about beating Obama, yet they cannot articulate exactly why they don't want Obama in the White House. It's weird. Here's a sample:

"After she voted Saturday, Arliss Douglass, of Topeka, said she can’t get behind Paul because she is afraid he would “get rid of our military.”
“I just hope and pray Santorum gets it, and I’d sure like to see Newt as vice president,” Douglass said. “I think that’s the only two that can beat the villain we have in there now.”

This is quite typical of the "schtuff" the sheeple are dropping from their mouths. They call Obama a villian, but will not say why he's a villian, they admire Gingrich's family values, but he has an established and documented habit of whoring everywhere he goes, and they can't tell us anything they really like about Santorum, except that he is NOT Obama! If Santorum were black, but still not Obama, would they still want him in the White House? And exactly why do Kansans not want Obama as President, and why were they so terrified of him back in 2008? Has it got anything to do with the fact that he does not need sunblock at the pool? Hmmmm......Kansas? Just asking.

There are actually people in Kansas who would want this type of "family values" dude in the White House!

Utah Amber Alert

Utah Amber Alert

Aliyah Kaye Crowder, eleven years old, was abducted from West Valley Elementary School, in Utah today by her noncustodial mother and her mother's boyfriend. This apparently happened once before, last October, and she was found in trailer in South Dakota with them. She was seen leaving her school during lunch with her mother, and an Amber Alert was issued. The vehicle is thought to be a dark colored Chevy Malibu or Impala. Her noncustodial mom's name is Athena Venus Barker, and if you see them, law enforcement is asking that you dial 911. Here is Aliyah's picture:

Update: Aliyah was found and returned to her dad late last night.

Pat Robertson Wants Pot Legalized?

Either the earth has completed it's feared polar shift, and we are all on a different dimension, in a parallel reality, or hell has officially frozen over. Pat Robertson, of the 700 Club, that very Christian, fundamentalist bunch of right wing people who never cease to amaze yours truly with their unrealistic "rightwingness", has declared that he thinks marijuana should be legalized and treated the same way our population treats alcohol!

I never thought the day would come when yours truly would actually agree with something said by Pat Robertson, who thinks there are demons in Halloween candy and that the earthquake in Haiti in 2010 was caused by a pact with "Satan" made three hundred years ago. Usually, when I hear about him, I just think of every born again nut who has tried to tell me that the master puppet hates me and that I won't be in heaven and laugh. But this time, I have to wonder why all the other fundies aren't listening to him. He's making sense! (I still don't understand how that's possible) Here's more.

And here's a quote from CBS:
"I just think it's shocking how many of these young people wind up in prison and they get turned into hardcore criminals because they had a possession of a very small amount of a controlled substance," Robertson said on his show March 1. "The whole thing is crazy. We've said, `Well, we're conservatives, we're tough on crime.' That's baloney."

And another:
 "If people can go into a liquor store and buy a bottle of alcohol and drink it at home legally, then why do we say that the use of this other substance is somehow criminal?"

And one more:
"Defenders of marijuana prohibition... must be wondering if it's only a matter of time before theirs proves to be a lost cause."

Whoa! Either Pat Robertson got hold of the wrong page of the calendar, and thought it was April Fools Day, or the whole Christian population in America has been on the bandwagon with something that is very political and not at all spiritual or moral since 1937.

Naked People Who Get Arrested

What's up with all the naked people who have been arrested lately? In California, someone named Jose Ayala walked into a Sacramento welding shop to ask for a job. Apparently, he did not have anything he considered appropriate to wear for job-hunting, so he completely did away with clothing for the occasion. He got arrested and did not get hired. Jason Wayne Strickland, of Arkansas, was arrested, naked, several months ago for taking his clothes off, dousing himself with gasoline, and threatening to burn his mother's house down. Yesterday, in California, someone else was arrested for stealing some assorted odds and ends from a church.....he was clad in a tutu! While fleeing and eluding, his tutu got caught on a chain link fence, and he was naked when he got arrested. But the headline stated that a "man in a tutu" had been arrested....and CNN only ran a picture of a lousy police car with that story! Dammit; aren't they aware that we need pictures with these headlines?

There's also the infamous Verdon Lamont Taylor, of Pennsylvania, who got arrested in February at a Walmart for being naked and stealing socks. At least CNN and the local news gave us the video. No one's ever naked when I'm at Walmart, though. And here's another one, Matthew James Ibarria, of Florida, was just arrested after driving his van naked. He was wanted for domestic violence and attempted to run over several officers while driving his van....naked. At least Clickorlando had the decency to run a picture with their naked man headline!

Has it really been warm enough to get arrested naked this winter?

Josh Powell's Crimes Might Pay His Family

What an outrage. First, Josh Powell's wife, Susan Cox Powell, disappears in December of 2009, and Josh declines to cooperate with law enforcement's efforts to find her. Then, a series of a series of custody battles ensued with his inlaws, over his two sons. Then Josh Powell's sperm donor goes to jail on unrelated charges, having something or other to do with child pornography, (sounds like a lovely, enabling family) and it also came out that Josh Powell's sperm donor had the hots for Susan!

As if all of this is not enough dysfunctionality, Joshy-boy loses custody of his two sons, but then gets supervised visitation at his house, (since when does supervised visitation take place at a murder suspect's house, or anyone's house, for that matter?) pushes the social worker away after gaining physical access to his sons, and blows the house, himself, and his children up. All done with the enabling and support of his family. That should really be enough.....those of us who do not set houses on fire and blow people up are still reeling from reports and pictures of all this, but here's something new: Josh's brother and sister want the life insurance to pay them! That's right; about two or three months before Josh carried out his murder-suicide, he changed his life insurance, making his brother, Michael Powell, the main beneficiary, and granting smaller payouts to his sperm donor and his sister. Of course, getting help for Josh would have been much less attractive in the face of a huge paycheck for simply waiting for his mental illness to run it's course, and going to authorities with any information they had concerning their brother's premeditiation of murder would not have been as lucrative, either. So there you have it; one family's reason for enabling mental illness and crime. Who says crime doesn't pay?

Josh, Susan, Braden, and Charlie Powell

What?! The Baby Had To Get On The News And Tell Mom And Dad They Forgot Her?

Thoughts of this kind of situation give Siriunsun nightmares! The parents of a three year old girl in Maryland took her to a family party at a Chucky Cheese resturant, left without her, ASSUMING that other relatives had taken her home, and found out she was MISSING when police had the local news air her picture! She's been reunited with her family, but I still would never have left the resturant without my child.

Another Siri Search

Among some of the Siri searches lately was someone looking for Pagan Festivals. Oh.....why didn't you say so? Witchvox has information from almost everywhere in the United States. Here's another link, Beyond Dead, from the Northeast.

Brushfires In Rick Santorum's Home State

Rick Santorum has a new home state. For some reason, he has taken a liking to Oklahoma. Pennsylvania will not hold their primary until April, so Rick Santorum needs a place to call home. But instead of actually learning something about his new "home state" and the history thereof, he pulled a truly stupid sounding comment out of an unmentionable part of his anatomy.

"Get this brushfire going," Santorum told the hundreds of supporters who filled the church gymnasium Sunday night. "I saw a few brushfires on my way over. ... We need another kind of brushfire from here in the heartland.".......Yahoo; The Ticket 2012

Seriously, Rick.....brushfires? So close to where tornados have recently dug new paths? You must be out of your mind! Maybe you're waiting to get a message from a burning bush, like Moses. We usually try to put brushfires out as quickly as possible in this part of the country.

A Burning Bush, or "brushfire", also; apparently, the source of Rick Santorum's inspiration. Could this possibly be what he considers an authoritative source for some of his ideas? Especially the religious ideas he wants to take with him to the White House? Is he just another narcissist, or does he have a full blown messiah complex?

This is the best way to handle a brushfire!

I'm Impressed With Rush Limbaugh's Former Sponsors

My day just got better! Hearing that seven advertisers, and counting, are pulling their ads out of Rush Limbaugh's show after he got on the air and called a law student a slut because she wants contraception and other healthcare for women to be covered by insurance companies made me very happy. Watching other Americans sit back and simply coexist with people like Rush Limbaugh, and various other conservatives and assorted nuts had gotton me a bit sad, lately. But now I can see that there is hope. The seven companies who no longer wish to be associated with Rush Limbaugh are Quicken Loans, Legal Zoom, Sleep Number, Sleep Train, Citrix Systems, Carbonite, and Pro Flowers.

Update: The count of advertisers who no longer wish to be associated with Rush Limbaugh is now at forty-two, and counting!

Texas Teen Who Needs A Kidney

Here's a young man whose mom is using the internet to find a kidney donor for him. His name is Blake Jordan, he's staying in the Ronald McDonald House in Dallas, Texas, and he has already had one kidney transplant fail. He needs a healthy donor whose blood type is O positive. He is so cute that I could not stop myself from posting about this.

Arpaio Thinks Birth Certificates Are More Important Than Real Police Work

Sheriff Arpaio strikes again! He's hot on Obama's trail! (seriously; where's the eye-rolley when I need it?) He's training his merry gang of volunteers, the Cold Case Posse, to scan copies of Obama's birth certificate, over and over again, with a magnifying glass, and....who knows...maybe a ouija board....for anything at all that can stir up the merry gang of "birthers", those determined but unstable folk who think it's not okay to have a president of mixed race born in a rather new state, (bona fide, inasmuch as our constitution is concerned) but think it would have been okay to have a whiter president born in another country, namely Panama, in a CIVILIAN hospital. (possibly not bona fide, according to the constitution)

Isn't there enough actual crime in Arizona and nationwide to keep volunteers for any law enforcement organization busy? Everyone from Sherlock Holmes to Donald Trump has had a look at President Obama's birth certificate, only to determine that it's authentic. Arpaio's efforts to reduce recidivism among convicts resonated among his constituents because they were a teeny bit parallel to reality. While his ideas to reduce illegal immigration in his community were unconstitutional and unethical, the ideas still responded to a real situation. But this birth certificate thingy has been proven quite a few times to be imaginary. Just a bunch of undereducated, undersocialized, unsmart prejudiced people who want a white male for president.

Crime in Arizona sometimes requires volunteer efforts.....let's see: we have the Jhessye Shockley case. Other children sometimes go missing in Arizona and need to be found. Volunteer efforts are almost always needed at some level in those cases. Why don't we see Arpaio putting his time and energy into that? Or....if he really has time to snoop at things that are not truly his own state's jurisdiction, such as another citizen's birth certificate, why not help with out of state missing persons cases? Kyron Horman,  Lisa Irwin, and Ayla Reynolds are still missing. If Arpaio doesn't want to do anything difficult, such as actually search or do police or hard core volunteer work, but prefers riling up the public with his take on documentation, instead; what's wrong with organizing volunteers to update and age progress some of these missing childrens' pictures?  

If Arpaio is using the President's birth certificate to garner attention from right wing loonies and gain votes during the next election, perhaps he would gain better and more solid attention for actually mobilizing his volunteers to solve real crimes and real problems, rather than acting on unbased impulses and insane thoughts.

Petition For Status On Kyron Horman Case

This is a link to a petition to law enforcement and the district attorney in Multnomah County, Oregon. It is a request for an update on the Kyron Horman case. He disappeared from his school on June 4, 2010, and the community would like an update, as he has not been found.
