Two teenagers were charged Thursday with planning a high school shooting as part of a satanic killing crusade, allegedly convincing the gunman that "murder was a viable means of accomplishing the purposes and goals of the shared belief system," according to the indictment. Grant Boyette, 18, and Justin Sledge, 16, were originally charged with murder conspiracy. The new charges, two counts of accessory before the fact of murder, are punishable by life in prison.

TUNICA, Miss. - Marie Barnard was delighted when, after decades of silence on the topic, Mississippi passed a law requiring school districts to teach sex education. But the lesson involving the Peppermint Pattie wasn't what she had in mind for her sons. The curricula adopted by the school district in Oxford called on students to unwrap a piece of chocolate, pass it around class and observe how dirty it became. "They're using the Peppermint Pattie to show that a girl is no longer clean or valuable after she's had sex - that she's been used," said Barnard, who works in public health.
