Lord of the Flies in London

Melanie Phillips: Britain's liberal intelligentsia has smashed virtually every social value

We're on the way there, but for the American people who still lean center-right.

And we've been down this sad and sick road before, but our president threatens to push us into the abyss.

Marriage is the foundation of a healthy society.
The first duty in civil society is toward one’s own children; everything else is built around it.

Meanwhile a father-of-four has told how he dragged the unconscious victim away from a fire in an attempt to save his life.

Chicago Tribune:  17-year-old charged in slaying of Brown Line rider. 68-year-old woman suffered fatal injury after fall down stairs:
Watson's grandmother, who worked for the state unemployment office for almost 30 years, sat on her sofa Wednesday and ate an ice cream bar as she talked in a matter-of-fact tone about the tragedy of her youngest grandsons' lives.

After their mother's death in 1997, Prince and Rico were often left in the care of older siblings, including their sister, Marshalla Johnson, Ashford said. The siblings — all college graduates — tried their best to mentor the twins, but it fell on deaf ears, she said.

"They would give them good advice, tell them to stay in school," Ashford said. "But they just took a wrong turn."

In August 2010, Johnson, 28, a day care worker and former standout basketball star at Marshall High School, was fatally shot in her West Side apartment, allegedly by her husband, Simon Simmons. He is being held without bond in County Jail while awaiting trial, records show.

A month after his sister's murder, Rico Watson was charged as an adult in the cabbie's armed robbery.

"They had money; I don't know why they did those things," Ashford said of the twin brothers. "I guess they wanted more money."

Ashford said she knows that Prince Watson did not mean to kill anyone.

(I just realized this, btw, thanks to your excellent contribution to the Bob Schieffer Blog Roll this morning).
