Christie Blatchford Has The Biggest Stones in Canada

Thanks to Kate for flagging this ("committing journalism").

There are legitimate questions that need to be asked before we are legislated into more "anti-bullying" crap.

First and foremost: 

Where were the parents during all of this? 

More power to Christie Blatchford for this excellent article. 

There are judgement issues here.

Anti-bullying is for p&ssies. 

You can quote me on that. 

It is short sighted to commit suicide over perceived internet humiliation.

Where are the parents? Where is the moral fortitude, the moral education? The parents who teach kids that even if things are tough-and they can be very tough-that suicide is a permanent "solution" to a temporary problem.

That drinking until you pass out is not a good idea. That it is a good idea to sleep in your own bed?

And who the hell uses Facebook postings as appropriate and legitimate first stages of grief/mourning?
