10. The “Teen Mom” story we don’t see on TV: Why high school students need birth control and parental leave
At the Guardian:
The classified service website Backpage.com has come under renewed scrutiny over its use by sex offenders just as it fights a lawsuit in the supreme court.
Police in Indiana said Darren Vann, a registered sex offender suspected of multiple murders, met his latest alleged victim through Backpage.
Vann, 43, was charged on Monday with murdering Afrikka Hardy, 19, who was found strangled at a motel in Hammond, near Chicago. The former marine has confessed to killing seven women and has hinted at more victims over a 20-year span, police said.
The investigation renewed controversy over Backpage as the US supreme court in Washington prepared to hear arguments on Tuesday in a case filed by three sex trafficking victims who say the website helps promote child exploitation.

Dave Matthews: “This song is about the worship of women but this is a bit of a crazy man. He’s the type of person that you’d call the police on. Some guy who’s just peering in keenly at his neighbors.”

Ken: Yes – except the Dave Matthews Band doesn’t rock.
