When I read stories like this I think a giant mass extinction asteroid hit might be the best for our species....


A Cobb County mom was arrested after her severely malnourished daughter was found dead inside the family’sSmyrna home Friday.

And neighbors were reeling from the news of the deadly discovery.

Ms. Ebony Berry, 38, was charged with murder and first-degree cruelty to children, according to Cobb County police.

The investigation began about 1:30 p.m. when officers were dispatched to the home in the 600 block of Concord Road regarding an unresponsive teen, police spokesman Officer Michael Bowman said.

By the time they arrived, the girl was already dead, Officer Bowman said.

“The investigation revealed that the victim was severely malnourished and neglected,” Officer Bowman said. “The other juvenile children, all younger, that were in the residence were in good condition.”

They were released into the custody of Department of Family and Children Services, he said.

Meanwhile neighbors are disturbed by the girl’s death and some wondered if they could have done something to help the troubled family.

"I was shocked and I felt kind of bad about it. Sometimes you wonder; maybe I could have done something," Mr. Miguel Vega told Channel 2 Action News.

Others said police have been involved with the family that lived at the home at least twice before.

"That's amazing that parents can [allegedly starve] their kids," Mr. Vega said.

Neighbors told the news station the girl who died had run away at least once and was found at a department store.

They said her younger brother did the same and was found hiding in a tree.

Several neighbors also said they never saw any of the kids going to school.

Police said an autopsy will be conducted to confirm the exact cause of the girl's death.

On Saturday, Ms. Berry remained in jail without bond.

Policehave not released the name of the victim.

Barack Obama will debate his party's 2004 presidential nominee, Massachusetts Senator John Kerry, in order to prepare for the fall debates with Mitt Romney, his campaign says:

Kerry will help Obama prepare for among the most consequential events of his reelection campaign — the three fall debates against Romney. As the senior senator from Massachusetts, Kerry has studied Romney’s career and campaign style for nearly two decades and has first-hand knowledge of his record as governor.

Kerry has long been considered one of the Democratic Party’s most skilled debaters, and his performances in more than 25 debates in the 2004 race earned plaudits. Some credited his strong debates against President George W. Bush with tightening the race in the closing weeks of the 2004 campaign.

It is his perspective on Romney, though, that could be especially valuable for Obama. Kerry was a key surrogate on behalf of the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) when he defeated Romney in 1994. And Kerry closely observed Romney’s successful 2002 gubernatorial campaign, where his performance in debates against Democrat Shannon O’Brien were believed to have helped him win.

“There is no one that has more experience or understanding of the presidential debate process than John Kerry,” said David Axelrod, Obama’s chief strategist. “He’s an expert debater who has a fundamental mastery of a wide range of issues, including Mitt Romney’s Massachusetts. He’s the obvious choice.”

Kerry and Rommey both handle themselves well in debates, referring readily to lots of studies and numbers -- numbers that when it comes to the economy, at least, continue to be a hard sell for President Obama. Figuring out a way to highlight what few good indicators there are out there will be a big part of his convicing voters to give him more time in office.
