  1. What the hell is a fifteen-year old boy doing "dating" an eleven-year old girl? I think we can see an entire domestic situation in the fact that boy is described as the "boyfriend." Ye Gods!

  2. The motive was "just typical teenage angst"? This is "typical"???? No, I'm sorry, this isn't typical, it's insane.

  4. Sorry for getting a bit het up about the story, but I have eleven year old twin daughters and if any fifteen year old boys started hanging around them, those boy would have to remove my husband's boots from their rear-ends so I could replace them with mine!

    And Richard, I agree totally--this is not "typical" behavior. At least, not in my house!
