Monday morning items...

1) A 36 year old man by the name of Richard Dorsay was as late as last December living in a bridge near downtown Chicago. His interview is in today's Sun-Times. He talks of living a normal life but he does have concerns about living in an apartment and working....

If he rents an apartment, couldn't another tenant accidentally burn down the building?

He also disdains what he sees as willingness in the mainstream work world to cheat to get ahead. A regular job also would bring a schedule and a boss.

So he might also return to the street.

2) Latoyia Figueroa was five months pregnant when she disappeared over a month ago. Unfortunately her remains were found in a grassy area in Chester, Pennsylvania. Her ex-boyfriend was arrested for her murder. He was found with a pistol and a bulletproof vest when he was arrested in Chester. Ms. Figueroa's story was gaining traction in the media thanks to some Philadelphia area bloggers who were covering this story while campaigning for the networks to give the same attention to Ms. Figueroa who is hispanic and black as they are for Natalee Holloway.

I wouldn't have known about it if it wasn't for CNN. They had reporters looking at the blogs on TV and they mentioned her name. At that moment I did a google search on her. Hopefully we'll see more of how this case works out or even why her ex-boyfriend opted to murder her.
