Just some more random thoughts here:
I understand that the prison sentence handed down to Genarlow Wilson was excessive. And now that it's been thrown out, a lot of people feel that justice has been done. Fine. But can we please not turn him into some kind of folk hero? Thanks.
The Red Cross accepts donations online, for amounts as little as $5. Some people hesitate to help because so many organizations set minimums that might be out of reach for a lot of people. $5 may not sound like much, but a whole lot of $5 donations could add up.
When you meet someone online, do not go alone, go to a public place, and let someone know where you'll be, who you will be with, and how long it should take. It sounds so elementary, but another adult has been found murdered, after meeting someone she set up an appointment with through Craigs' list. Nothing is foolproof.
