By now you’ve heard about the verdict in Dharun Ravi’s trial: he was convicted of intimidation bias, invasion of privacy, and tampering with evidence. do you think this is the correct outcome? I’ve read a couple articles on this tragic incident which were very thought-provoking, so I’ll re-post them here for your perusal.

I think both of these articles have an element of truth; the thesis of one doesn’t cancel out the other. what do you think? have you seen other thoughtful commentaries?
Got a tag on your body but don't want the expense of having it burned, frozen or cauterized off by a licensed professional? Well, the good news is that there are several ways to remove a skin tag at home inexpensively and all you have to lose is the time it may take. One word of warning though; removing a tag naturally, like using a home remedy, may take a few days to a couple months for it to work.
