Cliff Lee and Rangers Get Whooped By Giants in Game One of World Series

One of the greatest Game One World Series pitching match-ups turned out to be a clunker last night. Both Cliff Lee and Tim Lincecum were far from sharp. Cliff Lee proved last night that he is mortal afterall - getting shelled for 6 runs in 4 2/3 innings. Lee entered the game with an undefeated 0-7 record in the preseason. Tim Lincecum had a so-so start, giving up 4 runs in 5 2/3 innings. The Giants wound up winning Game One 11-7. The Giants' offense which has been seen as their weakness came up huge in game one. For Phillies fans hoping for a Rangers sweep, forget about it now. In fact, this could cost them the series.

Boyertown Boy Commits Suicide and Parents Blame it on Bullying

Once again we have another case of a youngster commiting suicide over what appears to be relentless bullying. Jesse Buchsbaum, 17, of Boyertown was bullied and relentlessly harrassed by classmates at school and couldn't take it anymore, thus deciding to take his own life. According to his parents, he was bullied because he didn't have a lot of friends. Gotta love high school kids these days. They prey on anyone who doesn't fit in and never let up. Just another disgusting case of bullying in our country.
