AGREED Ponderous - I would think that he would have had his DNA tested a long time ago since he is adamant about not being apart of his family.

Weird.

I NEVER open links in TOPIX, AND I certainly would NEEEEVVVER open one from YOU (or from any of your other characters either).

You're weird too like Barnes - maybe he shares your DNA - you should get in touch with him.

John Barnes sounds like he is mentally ill. I felt sympathy for the pain he is putting his poor family through & I agree he should have his dna tested for his family's sake.

Once John is confronted with the truth (which he will feebly try to dismiss), it will be easier for his father to stop feeling like he's guilty of some awful thing.

Even IF John actually believes this story he's telling, the way he's behaving to the family who loved him is very cruel & selfish.

oh - add the word "dude" to the above:

It should've read - "DUDE, I never open links in Topix ....."

I think you are confusing my being nice to you with stupidity - you couldn't be more wrong DUDE.

Agree with you. I feel especially bad for his father. How must he feel now?

I also agree he comes forward after all these years does a DNA test finds out he is not this liitle boy and the grief he is putting is own family through must be terrible. I thought when the story first came out something was no right about it.

Here you have a father and other family members that are telling you that you are not this missig kid. The father provides proof positive you are not and yet you continue to believe. Time to check in to the rubber room motel before the guys with the white coats and straight jackets come for you.
