So that kid in Alabama is still being held hostage in an underground bunker. His birthday’s coming up soon, soon enough that he might be celebrating it down there. Sigh.

On top of everything, he’s got Asperger’s and ADHD. While the cops have been able to send down his medication through a pvc pipe they’ve been using to communicate with, along with coloring books and crayons (my heart breaks), this guy clearly doesn’t have the sort of patience required to do well with this little boy’s illnesses.

My hope is that he wants to keep his bargaining chip in good health. My fear is that his paranoia will get the best of him and he’ll kill himself and the boy.
