Beaumontdave, how do you know the little kids were cute? Maybe they were all ugly.

Ever been in the situation where your car is just like the Amber Alert car? And while you are driving people are staring at you weird? My sister was a jumpy wreck when she got home from work, she drives a similar Saturn, and felt like she was Public Enemy #1...She is a good lady, so it was a little bit funny because she is the LAST person who'd harm a kid...I am glad the boy was found, hope his home life won't be a crappy mess.

The headline read "12 yr. old boy finds safe" my 1st thought was were there any valuables in it and hope he didnt climb in and close the door.
