I know it hardly compares with what critters live in Shannon's garage, or what Patriot might be putting on the grill for the 4th, but I'm surprised to see no reaction to this story.

Even if you haven't followed it (and the FARC) for years, as I have (as part of my job, and that's really all I can say about it), I would think the liberation of people who have been held for so many years and their reuniting with their families would be a human interest story, but I don't see anything about it here.

It's because Ingrid Betancourt is French, isn't it?
