Online Predators are Stoopit

Last night Elizabeth and I watched Dateline NBC's special about online predators. They had teamed up with a police unit who lured predators to a house by posing as teens on chat sites - but when the predators got there, they found Dateline and were interviewed and arrested. Some of the offenders had even seen the "To Catch A Predator" special on TV previously! This leads me to the following conclusions:

1) Adults who believe that intimate relations with kids is 'okay' are idiots.
2) Kids spend too much time online and at weird hours of the night.
3) Some parents obviously aren't doing a very good job.

Sometimes the world is a pretty dumb place...
