A look at the headlines
Here’s a glance at some of the stories that were staring at me yesterday:
* A man is on trial in Philadelphia for murder in the beating death of his 17-month-old daughter. Her offense? She apparently unplugged his Xbox video game system while he was playing it.
* That comes after a hearing for a 14-year-old Lansdowne kid who has been in jail on first-degree murder charges since last July for the stabbing death of his 16-year-old brother. Police believe they were arguing over a video game.
* A man in Scranton is accused of drugging his 9-year-old daughter with cold medicine, then putting her and her 8-year-old sister to bed so that he could slip out for awhile. Why? He was looking to hook up with his mistress.
Yep, some days you just want to pull the covers over your head.
