Sneakerhead Uproar -

There's big money in celebrity athlete sneakers,
especially when a limited edition is issued . . .

In Miami Gardens many youngsters who are fans of Air Jordan were disappointed because burglars got to the available sneaker supply of Air Jordan XI "Breds" before the kids could take them home.

Spoofing on Tragedy -

William Henderson is reporting that there are fraudsters posting fake messages on the Internet who are pretending to be the Sandy Hook school shooter.

I have lived through a number of these school shootings, shopping mall shootings, and similar events. The Mainstream American Media has settled into a formula for covering these events which I often find distasteful by now. In an effort to avoid glorifying the shooter and turning him into a celebrity they have tried to create a hagiography of the victims.

It would be interesting to learn more about the shooter and his mother, his activities on the Internet, and other circumstances surrounding this event, but people need to be patient and give the detectives some time to investigate.
