Information overload dangerous
As often as network news broadcasts the tragedies of the world, never before has the murder of a 15-year-old girl affected me. While leaving my Spanish class earlier this monthmy professor stopped me to ask about the young La Place girl who was beaten to death. While it was not surprising that this information was new to me, it was baffling that such a story from my hometown would receive national coverage. Unfortunately murders happen every day, but when one hits as close to home as this one did for me, it is difficult not to be interested in the investigation.
