FWIW, if you read that story about the boy in Indiana who was abducted by his grandparents and he's been found 19 years later in Minnesota, please know that what you've read probably is wrong and misleading. The stories I've seen in non-Minnesota newspapers have been inaccurate and paint the grandparents as saints and the mother as a homeless person living in her car.(Something she did do for *three days* while waiting for housing to open up.)

AFter she got back on her feet and got an apartment, the courts said she deserved to work on getting her son back full time (she had him on weekends so she could focus on employment), and that's when the grandparents took off.

This is what her lawyer is saying, there is no proof of any of that yet.
I also read she is mildly retarded (other words used).
Much to this story, and I am favoring nobody.

Not just her lawyer, but the cops involved as well.

I would prefer that the grandparents be sent to prison until they die.

Chicago papers were saying that the boys father was not in the picture. That presumably would be the grandparents son.
It would be awfully hard to hide 19 years when they were able to track the boy through his social security number, which means someone knew the number.
Separate and apart from the grandparents actions, it doesn't sound like anyone was looking for the kid too hard.

FYI, if you know someone's SS# and have a valid reason to search for them, you can send a letter to the IRS who will send a letter to the last employer who shows wages paid in on that number and tell the "lost " person someone is looking for him.

There are three sides to every story.
Only one is the truth.

Race, et al. This is fascinating. Finnish sniper killed 700 Russians (WWII) in 100 days. With no scope.

AFter one guy shot the sniper's jaw off, the sniper killed him before h passed out. Amazing.

I accepted all kinds of friend requests when I was new to FB -- mostly, former coworkers and HS friends. I've since gone through and deleted a lot. AS in, "Oh, after we became FB friends, we never talked, so after two years, I'm cleaning this up a bit."
I wish FB would make it easier to delete friends. It's three clicks per friend now.
Yet only two to accidentally "pocket friend" somebody on the mobile app, as I have done a number of times. Yaaay!

I've done the same and I'm about to clean house again. Watching an athiests vs. Christians argument get really ugly this morning. Old friend, A, is in the hospital for something. Posts something about God helping see him through. Other old friend, G, decides that this is the time to debate A's faith. Seriously? What a prick.

I think I'm the only one in this class (aside from the teacher) who knows anything about WW1. Also, I already know everything he is saying. I have a headache.

This is what Jess was posting about a while ago. They have the same thing at her boys' school. This is what liberalism gets you, people. Wake up.

It's a good thing you don't label.
