Jaycee

The most amazing story of the year is the discovery of Jaycee Dugard alive and mostly well. It amazes me that in 18 years no one discovered her existence. I am so happy for her and her family and I hope that she can heal and get on with her life. It gives me hope that Jacob Wetterling is somewhere out there alive.

"mostly well" ?

huh?

Well yeah, it's twisted Rick, and awful but her family is euphoric; she's alive and coming home to them. The sickos that took her need to burn in hell. They stole 20 years of her life and God knows what they did to her. But they didn't kill her and she seems mostly OK.

What a strange world we live in. In the last couple of years there's been the girl who was kidnapped and held in a cellar for years by a guy who eventually killed himself (I forget her name); then there was the Austrian case of the father who kept his daughter imprisoned in the basement with some of the children he sired, the others looked after by him and his wife; now this latest case. I wonder how many more girls are hidden away like this?

I'm pretty sure her loony captor had been released from prison a few years before he took her (sex offender, I think). Guess he should have been forced to serve his entire sentence...

Unfortunately CA is probably going to add this problem Betsy now that the state is broke and thinking of early release of prisoners. So sad.
