  • Facebook rants carry a hefty price

    Ever ranted on Facebook? Maybe posted a snide comment or two? Most of us have, and never thought anything of it. I imagine Cincinnati photographer Mark Byron figured the same. He expressed anger about his pending divorce and child visitation issues in a...

  • In Florida cyberbully case, where were the parents, teachers, friends?

    There is perhaps no more heartbreaking story in the news these days than the suicide of a bullied 12-year-old Florida girl, a death all the more distressing because it was a preventable loss of young life. The sadness extends beyond the obvious. Two...
