  •  Did CNN report on the case of Hana Williams? (0+ / 0-)

    Hana Alemu Williams was an adopted child originally from Ethiopia who was abused to death by her adoptive parents.  The parents were charged in her death and a jury found them both guilty yesterday.  I think the verdicts differed with the mother being found guilty on 3 counts and the father on 2.  The national media is just now picking up on the case,  but us fundamentalist watchers have known about it for some time.

    Here's a news report about Hana's case:

      Your reply on the heels of my question seems like a non sequitur.

      Was this case described in the diary somehow related to religious fundamentalism??

      If not, my earlier question stands.

    •  OK, I reflected on your remark (0+ / 0-)

      a bit more.

      As I understand it, you're saying this diarist performs a service by reporting an awful situation that's under-reported in other news.
