>> The Supreme Court struck down a federal law today banning videos depicting graphic animal abuse, saying that free speech includes videos with animal cruelty. Michael Vick loves those Constitutional rights. (the Washington Post)

>> Mexico's abortion debate is heating up as a pregnant 10-year-old girl, allegedly raped by her stepfather, comes to the country's attention. Mexico City allows abortion but many of the country's states do not. The girl's home state allows abortion in cases of rape during the first 90s days, but the girl is nearing into her 18th week. No ten-year-old should have to go through that. (CNN)

>> And finally: The Pew Center found that teens send more than 50 sext--oops, I mean text--messages per day, and one-third of teens send more than 100 texts daily. Wow, how can they have so many brilliant thoughts every day? (CNN)
