Health Care Bill

The Health Care Bill narrowly passed the House of Representatives and I'm so excited! I will write more on this later, but I definately had to add this to my blog!

Berlin Wall

I always knew about the Berlin wall, but I actually didn't know about the paintings along the sides of it. The reason this story striked my interest was the fact that the artists actually come back to fix up their artwork after it has dried. I also found it interesting that the east side of the wall was freely painted on, but the west side was not before it was taken down. The very interesting thing is that there is a show on the history channel on now about the Berlin wall.

Unemployment linked to crime

Is the economy crisis linked to an increase in crime? A recent couple of shootings occurred lately and the link above is one of them. I wonder if someone who normally wouldn't go crazy would during this time? I think this is a social issue since Columbine, but I wonder if the violence is getting worse?
