Melissa Busekros, the schoolgirl taken by police and placed in a psychiatric hospital because she was diagnosed with a "school phobia" and was being homeschooled, has fled state custody to make a midnight trip back to her own family, according to Joel Thornton, president of The International Human Rights Group.

"At 3 a.m., in Erlangen, Germany, Melissa reached her home to the surprise of her entire family," Thornton told WND. "Earlier in the morning Melissa left a note with the foster family where she was being held and began the journey to her family. She left of her own volition."

Thornton said April 23 is Melissa's birthday, and on turning 16, "this gives her broader rights than it does in America. It gives her more of a voice in her own custody. So, she decided to return home."

"In fact, if the state police come for her again she is prepared to refuse to go on the advice of her attorney," Thornton said.

When I read this today, it just warmed me all over. This kid has guts! And she has thumbed her nose at the tyrannical german educrats that kidnapped her. Good for her!

Ronaldus Magnus speaks to Rep. McCarthy

"There are those in America today who have come to depend absolutely on government for their security. And when government fails they seek to rectify that failure in the form of granting government more power. So, as government has failed to control crime and violence with the means given it by the Constitution, they seek to give it more power at the expense of the Constitution. But in doing so, in their willingness to give up their arms in the name of safety, they are really giving up their protection from what has always been the chief source of despotism---government. Lord Acton said power corrupts. Surely then, if this is true, the more power we give the government the more corrupt it will become. And if we give it the power to confiscate our arms we also give up the ultimate means to combat that corrupt power. In doing so we can only assure that we will eventually be totally subject to it."

VA Tech, II

Open question to the press: can't you leave these people alone so they can mourn in peace without having a camera shoved in their face at every turn?

Also: who care's what Cho's dorm room looks like? Hello, CNN? In case you were wondering, inanity like this is why your ratings are dwindling.

Great Ways to ruin your meal

1. While eating dinner at a local restaurant with your family and celebrating your wife's birthday, happen to glance up at one of the TV's placed every 24 inches around the perimeter of the dining room to see Bill Clinton holding forth on why it was wrong to fire 8 federal prosecutors. Bonus ruin points for ranting about it to your wife while she was enjoying her meal.

2. While crunching your granola at breakfast, turn on the radio to hear that Sen. Harry Reid has declared the Iraq war lost, and "The Surge" a failure (about 30 seconds after it started). Dump granola down drain as you now can't stomach anything from the wrenching in your gut you got from hearing Harry Reid. Side note: I thought you Nevada folks had more sense than to send a doofus like this to Washington. A recall election would go a long way toward remedying this negative impression. Or you could what SoDak did to Tom Daschle and vote the, umm, uhh, guy out. When is his term up, anyway?

VA Tech

Before commenting on the reactions, it must be made clear that what the VA Tech gunman did was deplorable, reprehensible, and immoral. There is no justification for murder - mass or otherwise, whatever the means used.

Today's comments from the Gun Owners of America are spot-on:

It is also worthwhile to note that Virginia Tech is -- because of
deliberate policies set by its administration -- a victim disarmament
zone, where even those with a state-issued concealed carry permit are
denied their right of self-defense.

In fact, pro-gun forces just last year tried to get the Virginia
legislature to address the problem. The bill to allow permit holders
to carry on state-supported college campuses died, due in no small
part to rabid opposition from Virginia Tech itself.

VT spokesman Larry Hincker put it this way after it became obvious
that the bill would not pass: "I'm sure the university community is
appreciative of the General Assembly's actions because this will help
parents, students, faculty and visitors feel safe on our campus."

The unfortunate irony continues when one recalls that not long ago,
two students at nearby Appalachian School of Law managed to stop a
gunman at that institution. Happily, they were able to dash
off-campus to retrieve their guns from their vehicles.

If a person licensed to carry a concealed pistol were present, and had the will to stop the murderer, many lives could have been saved. That is the bottom line. It isn't gun owners and advocates for all the liberties the Constitution recognizes who have blood on their hands today, it is those who would take away any means for law-abiding citizens to defend themselves against the Cho Seung-Hui's of the world.
