A crackdown in Texas.
America - land of the free. And to guarantee that freedom, everyone has to be constantly watchful. Like the photo store clerk from Eckerd
who dutifully reported a Peruvian-born couple's lewd shots of their infants to the Richardson (Dallas/Texas suburbs) police. The photos showed the parents' two infants bathing naked, lying together in bed with their mother (again naked) and the 1-year-old Rodrigo suckling his mother's (naked) breast. So the couple was arrested -- the maximum prison sentence for the crime in question being 20 years -- and the children taken away. (verbatim k5

Who do you root for when everyone's a villain?
It turns out that everyone
involved in the "Internet Twins
" fiasco is scum. Sure as hell the biological mother is (she gave the babies up twice
and now wants them back; I wouldn't trust her to care for my cat); the woman from the UK
is, and now the man in the US
is. A plague on all their houses.
Now the biological father, Aaron Wecker
, has begun proceedings to gain custody of the babies. I hope he isn't as despicable as everyone else involved. Let's hope this circus doesn't follow the girls around for the rest of their lives. If there's any sort of lesson in this, I wish someone would tell me what it is.
