What is the cost of more education?

  Basically this article was about how many college credits you actually need to go to college. It states that "not all schools will accept all your previuos credits" if you plan to switch schools or your major.
   I don't think that's fair. I think people should be able to keep their previous credits becase they worked hard to earn them.

Long live ''The Simpsons''

   This article was about The Simpsons and that it is the longest-running American Prime-time series with 500 episodes. The creator Matt Groening says, ''Ther's no real end in sight''.
    I think this is a great show. I used to watch it when I was younger. I didn't even know it was still on TV actually. Though, I'm not surprised  that it's still on TV because alot of people like having pieces of their memories around so of course they will continue to watch the show. I have a lot of memories through the program as well.

When Feeling Good Isn't Good Enough

   In this article self-control and self-esteem is discussed. It explained that in order to build your self-esteem you must have self-control. In the article it states "self-control resembles intelligence..." therefore when you know you're intelligent your self-esteem increses.
   I thought this article was a very interesting article. I can now understand the importance of self-control and self-esteem. Though I think thus article should have a more effective tiltle.
   I think I have alot more self-control than teenagers my age. I know what I'm supposed to say or do and the appropriate time to do so.

Search for missing Ga. girl turns up body in trash

      In this article a 7 yr. old girl was abducted from her apartment complex north of Atlanta on Monday Dec. 5. Jorelys Rivera was found close by in a garbage bin. Her family as well as neighbors put flowers and stuffed animals on the playground where she was last seen. Investigators haven't found any suspects.
    
     I feel as though younger children that are Rivera's age and younger should be kept a close eye on. Little kids get into a lot of things and should be constantly watched. I feel bad for her family; it was wrong for that person to do that to her. There are a lot of other child victims in the USA as well that have been through what Rivera has been through.
