Ever here of the expression, "Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover?" I'm sure that you have had. The news media is just pathetic these days. They need to dig down so deep to find a fault in someone, just so they can get a story. I guess that's okay, I mean who cares about the future and child support when you can look back and see a whole persons history. Is that what it really comes down to? To see if a person has been "Little Miss Perfect" their whole life? People make mistakes and stupid decisions, some worse then others. I'm sure you can think of someone who has been influenced by drugs and done something they regret. It just so happens that she was'nt so lucky. I'm not saying that you should just pretend everything is hunky dory and say murder isn't a big deal. I'm trying to say that people can change, and humans can rarely see that. Lisa has probably changed her life for the better. As a society we need to look past misfortunes and see what we can do for future. needs.

I think Congressman Weiners bill is a good one, the responsible parent should not have to pay any fees because of irresponsible ones. That being said I think that the Congressmans staff should have done a bit of homework, Ms. Bongirono should be no one's poster child she committed a serious and unnecessary crime. I hope she is truely rehabilitated but as a tax payer who always obeys the law how much did her incarceration cost me and you for that matter? I am sure alot more than 25 dollars.
