News: Random kid stories / Verbiage: Too many kid stories.

Some articles regarding "kids". A 12-year-old Arab boy tried carrying a bomb into Israel, luckily it malfunctioned, otherwise, they would have murdered him too. Must be age discrimination. Life isn't worth living if you can't make bombs yourself.

Egypt, is hosting a workshop to stop female circumcision.

And here's a couple "pre-teen" thirteen year-olds. And a 12-year old surviving a 45-foot fall.

Seems like a lot of child-related news lately. I guess they're so fed up with adult violence, we now must now focus on child violence. Hey, why not start them young?

Age shouldn't be reported in most stories, as it usually isn't relevant, other than to get the reader to care. ...It probably won't be long before we build altars to the young.

Bah! Can anyone remember the name of the current top Chess dude?

Since there is condemnations against Israel all the time with repsect to the their use of violence in defending themselves, where are the UN condemnations of these terrorists using children? How sickening can you get. The palestinians should be ashamed of their actions allowing a child to kill try to kill himself.

As far as female circumcision, I can see no reason for it. I cannot understand why some one would desire to do such to a child. What is really kind of amusing is to think that these suicide bombers think they are going to get their couple score of virgins. Don't they realize that half the fun of making love is pleasing the other person, and if you are unable to please her because she is scarred permenantly they are going to miss much of the fun? Bah, perhaps this whole thing is not thought through completely.

Killing a retarded child, whoa, that had to make them the cool boys on campus huh? I agree the the judge, lock them away, they are not fit for freedom.

It says that it was not known if the child was wearing a seatbelt, but it is pretty tough to get thrown from a car while wearing one. Geesh, people, they are your kids, probably the most precious people on the planet to you. Don't try to be cool, be a parent. Do not start the car moving until everyone is buckled up.

I believe this is done when she becomes a teen. Similar to Arabs giving boys circumcisions at the age of thirteen. At that age, i wouldn't quite call her a child. She can make her own decisions to some extent. Though, it is nice that they are addressing the issue in the open. To me that's the most important part.

Do not start the car moving until everyone is buckled up.

I'm in agreement on that one. I generally recoomend everyone buckle up before i go.

Garry Kasparov

I do believe he is not the champion right now.

Hmm, I have heard of it being done at very young ages. Either way, terrible idea.

Ah. I have no idea then.

A few people corrected me on this one. Guess you were correct.

they were pre-teens at the time (1)

the article says the murder occurred in Feb 2003, which means if they are 13 now they would would have been 12 (or possibly 11) at the time.

Yes confusing, but if my only problem with Faux News was confusing writing that would be a big improvement.

Yeah, i figured as much. But, it is poor writing.
