Because, yeah, I'll cry in public

The authorities had discovered the rarest and most pitiable of creatures: a feral child.

I found this story linked through Dooce, and sat in my little corner of Starbucks last crying like a fool. Please read it at some point, but maybe wait until the end of the day or something because this is not a story that will necessarily make you happy.

On the completely different topic of newspapers and the Internet (one we all know I am quite fond of), this is one of the dumbest ideas I've heard in a long time. (Linked from Romensko.) I mean, really? Thank heavens the T-U is into Web (mostly), but I can pick out a few people who would think the Inquirer made a brilliant move. Good grief.
