    This episode might have caused the family some grief for about 10 hours, but millions of people now know about Sunil Tripathi. And if Sunil is out there, he's more aware than ever that his family is desperately looking for him.

    Nobody is going to think that Tripathi had anything to do with this. painful as it might have been at the time for them, that's totally history. Now, they're left with more publicity for his case than they could have ever dreamed.

    I'm not saying this entire episode was "good", but it was understandable speculation, and some good might come out of it.

    Freedom isn't free. So quit whining and pay your taxes.

      have a day to all work to get the word out about Sunil's disappearance. If we all use our contacts online, maybe we can help bring him home.

      Fitting, since I helped spread the erroneous information about him.
