Blogging makes teen kill mother.

Not really, but I’ve seen a few blogs refer to the story of the Alaskan girl who killed mer mom. The original news stories, around November 21, fail to identify her as a blogger, but I notice that Boing Boing refers to an Associated Press story dated November 23 that refers to her online journal.

I hope that this isn’t going to lead to criminal defenses like “the blogosphere made me do it”, similar to when we used to hear that rock music, or more recently the internet made me commit that crime.
