I'm with ya, Spaw! lol I realize now that my previous posting reads like the whole thing was directed at you, to argue a point and I apologize--was not intended to be aimed at you. You and I obviously agree on this (as do most of the folks here, it seems).

Hmmm. The vote. We had a similar discussion in my office this week and I really can't vote either way, unfortunately. Don't know anything about Mom OR Dad, for that matter. But based on what I know of the story, on the one hand, you could say that Mom had the boy's best interest in mind because she tried to give him a better life in the U.S. On the other hand, how responsible is a Mom who risks the life of her child, across 90 miles of open ocean on a rickety raft? What does that say about her judgment? That's a tough one. I'm interested--what do YOU think??
