City of Extremes

Lindsey once described Los Angeles as a city of extremes (eg. poverty and wealth). We’re now learning that Coeur d’Alene has its extremes as well. Compare: Burt Rutan (famous rocket scientist) vis-a-vis this lady (its depressing; read at your own risk).

    when i worked in CPS, i saw lots of really bad living conditions. this case, though, sounds especially bad. i hope the girls are placed in a loving foster home (are you available? 🙂

    i’m sorry — i made a little joke about a very serious story. Old social workers tend to do that when something is so horrific they don’t know what else to do. those girls are so damaged they will need years of very specialized care and treatment to have any hope of living a semi-normal llife. i hope the gr.mo. and mo. go to jail for a long time!

  3. I didn’t take any offense! And actually Lindsey and I have discussed becoming foster parents, though we aren’t rushing into it. We do plan on adopting a couple of our kiddos in the future, too!
