The most recent contender for the category of femme fatale of the century, Casey Anthony, is still woefully fresh in the American consciousness.  This past summer, the pert young single mom from Florida stood accused of killing her two-year-old daughter, Caylee.  When Anthony was acquitted in early July, many pundits visibly seethed at their certitude that a villainous “tot mom” had escaped her rightful due, with cable news star Nancy Grace erupting in an impassioned anti-Anthony tantrum that went viral. But Anthony’s saga, and all the attention it garnered, also sparked a counter-trend: vocal and often eloquent critiques of the 24/7 news cycle that has made a lucrative enterprise of sensationalizing stories of young white female victims and perpetrators, while ignoring countless other cases of equal moral gravity (say, crimes committed against non-white, non-poster-child populations).Mens alle 131 parlamentsmedlemmer fra Orbans regjerende høyrekoalisjon stemte for, manglet de likevel ytterligere to stemmer for å få den påkrevde to tredels majoriteten som skal til for å endre grunnloven.Forslaget var ment å gjøre det mulig for landet å nekte å ta imot flyktninger og migranter som blir fordelt gjennom EUs kvotesystem.At forslaget ble avvist, var et noe uventet tilbakeslag for Orban, som allerede har…

More than a century later, Borden still features in children’s jump rope rhymes (“Lizzie Borden took an axe/and gave her mother forty whacks…”), academic dissertations, award-winning documentaries, themed bed-and-breakfast retreats and a well-reviewed punk rock musical, “Lizzie Borden: A Musical Tragedy in Two Axe.” Most recently, HBO announced the development of a mini-series based around the lurid murder, starring Hollywood it-girl Chloe Sevigny, who apparently regards Borden as a “countercultural icon.” How did Patty Hearst cross the line from being a perfect girl-victim to an unforgivable girl-perpetrator?  Around 9 pm on February 4th, 1974, the 19-year-old heiress to the Hearst family publishing fortune was kidnapped from her apartment in Berkeley, California, where…
