Eraser Law

eraserHow would you like to go back and delete something you posted online. A new law in California will allow minors to delete embarrassing or incriminating social media posts…so Twitter, Instagram, Facebook. It’s called the “eraser law,” and says kids under 18 can ask that posts and pictures they put up be deleted by the hosting company. As it is now, everything is saved. Even if you delete it, someone can go back and dig up anything you’ve put online. The idea is kids make mistakes and ones they make when their 15 shouldn’t  haunt them the rest of their lives. See, some things are still reserved for parents.

Brent Lee

QMIX Afternoon Guy, Brent Lee, grew up near Greensburg -- where he started working on the radio at age 14. Growing up as an only child may have been lonely at times, but it led him to be the creative, fun guy we all enjoy on the radio! Brent graduated from North Decatur High School and Ball State University. His first summer during college, Brent actually filled-in as the QMIX Afternoon Guy all summer, when there was a full-time opening on our staff. Little did he know he would return to that job many years later. Brent has worked in radio all over Indiana (and a bit in Illinois too), claiming to never have had a real job. And he’s has been back at QMIX since 2011. We hope he’ll be here for a long time to come! Some of Brent’s favorite things are IndyCar, movies and good food!
