The rape case from Steubenville seems to be a media storm of epic proportions. At least in the US – I’ve overheard a few conversations about it and seen some Facebook shares from European friends but the two continents are still two different planes of existence as far as media goes. That would be an interesting subject for another post but right now I just want to share a couple of items about Steubenville that I have come across.
