Can you put a price on the life of a child? I know I couldn't, but that's mostly because I think they're worthless. Seriously, try holding a conversation with one. They don't know anything. And forget about them having any kind of aesthetic point of view. But one Louisiana woman (pictured, sad to say) knows exactly what her children are worth: $175 and a cockatoo for the pair. And now she's been sentenced to fifteen months hard labor for human trafficking. According to her attorney, she was just trying to do the right thing by putting her kids (a 5-year-old and a 4-year-old) up for "adoption" instead of, say, throwing them into a city canal to be reared in the sewers by a gang of penguins. Plus, she really needed that $175 and a cockatoo. Have you seen those birds? They're adorable. More details here.
