I’m sure the MSM will have lots of fun with this:

“Just to let everyone know, my mother was murdered.”
This simple yet startling sentence marks the last entry Rachelle Waterman made in her Internet journal before she was arrested on charges she participated in killing her mother. And it marks the beginning of an online discussion that’s as remarkable for its popularity as its content.
Waterman is the 16-year-old high school honor student from Craig jailed with two 24-year-old men who troopers say schemed for months to kill 48-year-old Lauri Waterman.
Waterman started her diary on LiveJournal.com in September of last year, and anyone with Internet access can read the 100-plus entries she’s written.
She made her final entry Nov. 18, the Thursday after she spent the weekend in Anchorage playing in the state volleyball tournament. While she was at the tournament, police say, her two accomplices killed her mother.
The Nov. 18 entry includes two more sentences by Waterman explaining she won’t be online for a while, because police seized her computer.
For several days, the Web site was quiet. Then came stories about Waterman’s arrest and arraignment, some of which mentioned the journal. Since then, it’s become a hot spot.
On Wednesday, the day of the arraignment, 11 readers had commented on Waterman’s final entry. By midday Friday, the number was up to 256. Twenty-four hours later, it was over 1,600.
Most seem to be written by teens and young adults. Many are glib, some are heartfelt, a few are disturbing and a number are obscene.
Taken together, they create a fascinating peephole into a world where lock-and-key diaries have been replaced by journals written for the whole planet to read and respond to, a world where voyeurism has been compounded by participation.

So finally it’s come to this!
Here’s the proof (the fatal journal called “My Crappy Life”). (Via Geeklife.)
Blogging causes murder!
I just knew it!
Clearly, something has to be done. How many more must die?
If we could save just one life!
(And I thought all blogging might lead to was political hardball.)
UPDATE: Here’s an example of the type of political hardball which I might expect to be directed against bloggers of unpopular opinions. (Via Glenn Reynolds.)
