Microwave Mom


It looks like the story of the baby-microwaving mom has made it all the way to China and getting front-page play in the New York Daily News. For those of you who haven't heard, this Dayton mother of four (pictured) is accused of stuffing her month-old baby in a microwave and burning the child to death. It's yet another national accolade that's sure to perpetuate the image of Ohio as a backwoods Thunderdome. -- Kevin Hoffman
