From www.coloringbook.com, the folks that help you teach your children through the wonder of a crayon rainbow with titles such as:

Because they have your best interests, and the interests of the United States in mind.

It's never too early to learn what life is really about.

Because we want our children to know right from wrong.

To know friend from foe at a glance.

To teach them what it means to be free.

To show true leadership.

Color me clueless.

Prodigal Son

by on Jul.18, 2011, under Crime, Family, Parenting, War and Terrorism

Mothers and their sons don't always agree on everything. But they ought to try to get along. Konrad Schmidt, 47, of Oberhallau, Switzerland hasn't had a good relationship with his mother for a few years. Neighbors said he had a long-running feud with his mother. "They had a lot of heavy issues over a lot of things," one said. He phoned his mother to tell her he was dropping by. And he meant it literally. He buzzed his mother's house three times in a leased Diamond Aircraft DA42. Knowing his mother was inside, he dived into the house and crashed, resulting in a huge fireball and explosion. Konrad's mother, Rosemary Schmidt, 68 survived. She was in the basement when he struck. Neighbors helped to rescue her from the rubble. Mrs Schmidt, who is being treated for shock, told police that shortly before the crash her son telephoned her from the cockpit to say, "Are you home? I am just going to drop by." Witnesses said there was no possibility that it had been an accident. One bystander said, "He had all these flypasts. He was lining himself up. And then he did it. It was like seeing a mini re-run of 9/11."
