Myspace is totally lame. I am still a member and all, blah blah blah. But? I doubt the website itself is to blame for a teenage girl getting on a plane to frickin Jordan, of all places. And naming her the Myspace Teen, a la Motorist Rodney King or Track Star Shellie Turner (what the press called a local murder victim), is kind of, sort of, blaming the site, isn't it?
I especially like this little gem: "Shawn Lester told The Saginaw News that her daughter has "never given me a day's trouble. ... I just don't understand with all these new laws protecting America how a 16-year-old kid could get out of the country." " (op. cit.) (I think- it's been a while, okay!) What? Lady, you got scammed. And don't blame the government, how'd she get out of your house?
Oh my God. She'll be in college in a few years. Teacher Lady, we should be on our toes.
