Things I think about at work when I’m supposed to be working, but I’m actually reading cnn.com

Is it just me, or does it seem like kids are being kidnapped and killed a whoooooole lot lately?
Is it just getting all sorts of press because of the semi-recent Amber Alert?
I mean, children are probably kidnapped all the time, but it’s not headline news.
I’m not saying it shouldn’t be, but it seems to be the equivalent of “THIS JUST IN: SOMEONE DIED.”
It’s very sad an unfortunate, but…hasn’t it been happening since, I don’t know, the beginning of time?
I guess I’m glad it’s all over the news…every day…
I mean, if I had a missing child, I’d be grateful that cnn.com cared enough to make it its headline, but it’s getting rather morbid.
I can’t tell if it’s just getting more media or if kidnapping is some general growing trend that’s signaling the apocalypse.
I have half a mind to kidnap some kid just because it’s the new hip and trendy thing to do.
PS — Just kidding, FBI.
