An Iowa newspaper takes a tough front-page stance against bullying
Today’s Sioux City Journal devoted their full front page to an editorial about a gay teen who recently committed suicide. On the death of 14-year-old Kenneth Weishuhn, which the paper called “a kind-hearted, fun-loving teenage boy,” the paper had this to say: "This is not a failure of one group of kids, one school, one town, one county or one geographic area. Rather, it exposes a fundamental flaw in our society, one that has deep-seated roots. Until now, it has been too difficult, inconvenient — maybe even painful — to address. But we can’t keep looking away."  A must-read that offers concrete solutions to a major cultural problem; check it out for yourself. (page via Newseum; thanks sarahlee310 for spotting)
