Bristol Palin has said goodbye to her baby daddy. According to a MSNBC story, here, Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston have broken up. The reason is unknown, but they have been broken up for a few weeks. An unnamed source says "I thought they would stick it out. But I think they can work together to raise Tripp." Another source says that even those 'in the loop' don't know why the couple split.

"I'm not sure what caused [them to break up] – it's common knowledge," says another source who knows the family.

Are you surprised? What are your thoughts on this?

In 2006, then-editor Steve Smith of The Spokesman-Review had the idea of starting a publication for an often forgotten audience: teenagers. The Vox Box was a continuation of the Vox, an all-student staffed newspaper published by The Spokesman-Review. High school student journalists who staffed the Vox made all content decisions as they learn about the trade of journalism. This blog's mission was to give students an opportunity to publish their voices. The Vox Box and the Vox wrapped up in June 2009, but you can follow former staffers' new blog at
