A couple of years ago I saw a story that was widely publicized, and I said to myself something is not right. I shared my discontent with a few people, and while no one said I was full of it, no one seemed to share my view. I dropped discussing it, and never even posted my concerns here.
This week there is a lot of coverage on the release of Jill Carroll. And some people have started to question the circumstances surrounding her kidnapping and release.
It's still too early to judge the story involving Ms. Carroll, but now I am starting to wonder again about Elizabeth Smart, and her kidnapping and recovery. In Ms. Smart's case, too many issues in the story were too neat, too convenient. I am hesitant to restate my entire concern here, but suffice it to say the media provided me some circumstantial (at best) evidence that backed up my suspicions. The issue of Ms. Smart is now moot, at least as it relates to Ms. Carroll.
However, I am going to watch what happens in the next week regarding Ms. Carroll. If her story doesn't add up, and as of now I am unsure if it does, I will state it here.
