Move Along: Nothing to see here. . . .

An update from the CBC: “The RCMP say the 12-year-old North Vancouver boy who went missing on Wednesday has been found safe and alone in Richmond – just hours after they asked for public help in finding him. ”

I’m honestly relieved that this was simply an old fashioned case of a kid running away from home for a couple of days to show the parents a thing or two, and that the boy is fine and back home.

It’s also a good thing nobody jumped to any crazy false conclusions like sexually predatory child molesters in New Hampshire and illegal border crossings by a minor and evil Xboxes that allow kids to chat with perverts or any of those kinds of things. Because now that the kid is back home safe, it might look like the understandable worries of a concerned mother had somehow been reported as Hard Facts by the city’s news organizations, and those organizations would look pretty stupid.

Just sayin’.
