Today I missed my Japanese class again, since I have gotten a bad throat. I only went to the class once this week, so I am probably so far behind now. I will catch up in the summer tho so no worries hehe.

Anyway today has been weird, at 3 some guy ringed the bell.

I went down and recognized it was my sister's former boyfriend.

He told me he wants to get his fishing poles back. I told him to wait downstairs while I get them for him. While I was searching them, he is already in the house.

He is still here right now, smoking, walking all around the house with his shoes on which btw I just washed the floor 2 days ago!

Hopefully he will leave soon, oh yeah working on the jap report as we speak!

The latest tragedy capturing the imagination of the blogosphere: Michael Mullen, a thief, a con man, an alcoholic drug abuser, a victim of child molestation, and most recently, an executioner of two sex offenders in an attempt to gain some sort of redemption, with exacting vengeance.

"I am Agent Life! And I alone [am] responsible for the deaths of the two level three pedophiles in Bellingham Washington, and they are not the last to be executed unless things change for the better," posted Mullen on his AOL Journal blog, just before turning himself to the authorities.

Mullen deleted the original post, but not before it was indexed by Technorati, where a screenshot of the post can be found.

After looking up the addresses of two registered sex offenders in Whatcom County, Oregon, Mullen posed as an FBI agent who was there to protect them. After a twelve pack of beer on the lawn outside the pedophiles' home, Mullen shot each of them once in the head. Read more of the story from this excellently written article from the Seattle Times.

Mullen adds his entry to the list of recent eerie and telling blogs detailing violent episodes. Last spring, a Chinese student's blog led to the identity of his killer.

In the summer, Joseph Edward Duncan III, the pedophile murderer who attracted national media attention during the man hunt that followed the kidnapping of an Iowa brother and sister, wrote explicitly about fighting the demons within himself on his blog.

All forms of badness are to be found in all things.

But it is sad to see human mortality leaves such an acrid acidic stamp upon the blogosphere.
