William Dunn, 44, of Lakeland, Florida is suing that state’s Department of Children and Families, claiming that it failed to properly investigate an allegation of child sexual abuse against him. Read about it here (The Ledger, 7/13/09). Florida DCF separated Dunn from his daughter for almost a year before determining that no abuse had occurred. Apparently the child had told the agency that her father had sexually abused her and then recanted the charge at the final hearing into the matter.

Over the course of our lives we wait for lots of things: wait to see a doctor, wait in check-out lines, wait in traffic; some state employees may even have to wait to get paid during this budget stalemate. But the nearly 20,000 children in Pennsylvania’s foster care system — placed due to abuse or neglect — should not have to wait one more day for us to make life better for them.

|J.K. Rowling Must Register as a Potential Pedophile
Posted: 16 Jul 2009 11:05 AM PDT
In a stunningly misguided program implemented by the British government, all children’s book authors who visit schools must register with a national database intended to protect children from pedophiles, and they must pay a fee to do so. Beginning October 12, 2009, the Vetting and Barring Scheme (VBS) will require that all adults who work with children, including authors such as J.K. Rowling and Philip Pullman if they make special visits to schools, will be required to register with the database for a fee of £64 ($105).
