    But neither you, nor I, have any remote idea of the consequences to the boy who stepped forward, nor the other pages that were the victims of this predator.

    Abuse does not always come physically. You can bet your ass that this incident, along with it being plastered all over the news 24/7 has had a major and life altering impact.

    To say that the situation was "the best thing that could happen" is incredibly naieve.

    The problem with America Today: There's a difference between The American Dream, and The American Way.

      Let me tell you that the 24/7 coverage and constant barage of "sick" and "despicable" labels being hurled at the situation are in themselves DEVASTATING to the victims, many of whom experienced nothing more than the creeps initially, and especially to those who went along with it willingly. This selfrighteous uproar is dragging every last one of those boys through something much worse than a majority of them suffered initially.
