More on Backpage from the Washington Post

Here’s the link to the Washington Post article that first reported the shutdown of Backpage’s “adult” section. I’m not feeling the least bit sorry for poor Backpage. If they weren’t trafficking in children they might gain some sympathy for their outcry of censorship. They had become a venue for low level traffickers and pimps, advertising children who would be¬†obviously underage on the streets. It was far too easy. This won’t stop the trafficking, but it might slow down the ones with lesser skills. One small step.

President signing the Violence Against Women Act

Very powerful opening words by Diane Millich, a Native American woman. She showed great courage sharing her story on behalf of so many who have suffered in the same way. I’m grateful to live in this country and to have a President and other leadership that believe in protecting the rights of women.
