Not getting along  
I mourn the murder of Kelsey. A young life of promise destroyed. A family shattered. But I wonder, would I feel this way if she was old, ugly or a man? Possibly not. Maybe it is the destruction of beauty that spurs good to take place.

I realize that part of the media of coverage is because she is white, young, and obviously female.
But, I think a major part of the coverage is also the location. Oak Park Mall? Who knew? I don't even remember the last murder in Johnson County. We are all sort of lulled into a sense of security by the fact that we have money and live in the suburbs. It's weird. I don't know.
