The fact is . . .
but . . .?! 1st . . .

A son. A daughter. Missing. An year. 2 years. 3 years. 4 years. What I'd like to see in any film version of "Thanos Rising," which is not in the graphic novel, is the discovery of his victim's bodies, which are probably buried with the great cave ape in the same area, and that can be done by a sudden flashflood, a sandstorm, etc. Just to provide the parents of these missing kids with some relief, as to what happened to their kids.

The fact is . . .
There are too many sexual assaults, both here in the U.S. and around the world. Though . . .?! Most do not rise to the level of an international incident. Though . . .?! There was one that did almost 10 years ago, which may be why I feel some empathy for its victim.

His parents were separated, and while his mother and his older brother remained in Europe, while his older brother was in school, he lived with his father in a Mideast country, where his father managed a hotel, and all was good. Till after one day at the beach and an evening at the arcade at the mall, he was looking for a ride to take him home to eat dinner with his father. And that is when he ran into a boy he knew, a 17-year-old classmate from school, who offered him a ride home, and he accepted, thinking nothing wrong, nor did he think nothing wrong when 2 more people, an 18-year-old and a 35-year-old showed up at the car, as they were cousins of his classmate.

He only knew something was wrong, when they did not turn off at the exit, that would take him home, but . . .?! instead continuing out to the desert, where they stopped on a desert road. That is when he tried to use his cellphone to reach the local police, and that is when they took away his cellphone, beat him, and at knifepoint, stripped him naked, and when he was stark naked, they each took a turn sodomizing him. And when they had finished, they threatened him with the knife and a pool cue and told him, if he went to the police, since they knew where he lived, they'd kill him, kill his parents, and burn down the house.

It is said that a rape victim is raped twice. Once by their rapist and once by the legal system. I don't know how true that is, but . . .?! That is what happened this time. When his father, despite the threats took him to the police, after a perfunctory medical exam, since it was obvious he had recently he had sex, and there is only the crime of "forcible homosexuality" in this country, he must have been a homosexual, and he was going to be arrested and charged as being a homosexual, as homosexuality was illegal in his country. To prevent that he fled back to Europe to his mother and older brother.

Never get between mama she bear and her cub. She'll eat you alive. I'd like to see his story made into a film, as what follows is a great story and would make a great film. When she found out what had happened to her son, having made friends with many of the French politicians, including at that time the President of France, from her days in French TV, she used her political connections to have the French government bring pressure on the other government, and she started an on-line petition calling for a complete boycott of his country, which I signed, till they did right be her son. Thus with private pressure and public pressure, pressure from above and pressure from below, this lone woman wrestled the other government to its knees and got it to rescind the charges against her son and arrest his 3 attackers.

The youngest attacker was tried in juvenile court, but . . .?! the other 2, after a lengthy trial of 3 days, were sentence to 15 years in prison. Still she was not satisfied, as he wanted the oldest attacker tried for attempted murder, as he was HIV positive, and she protested vociferously in court at this injustice, and had to be removed from court. And the other government knew the oldest attacker was HIV positive, but . . .?! they did not notify the boy nor his family of this, even though there is apparently something that can be done to help prevent becoming HIV positive, but . . .?! it must be done quickly, and when the boy and his family learned this, it was too late to do something. So there was the fear that he'd become HIV positive. Fortunately, this did not happen.

Alexandre Robert.  Teen. (15 at the time of the incident) Hero. French-Swiss. Upper middle class. Injured. Victim. Unknown. Present.

A perfect example of "Wrong person. Wrong place. Wrong time." Thus . . .?! my wish for all of you is "Right person. Right place. Right time."

Okay. That is enough about me.

Next time: The 67.

Your post was interesting, but why do you kept writing ...?! in about every other sentence?  I counted it as bout six times, twice in a three line paragraph.

Just curious.

The group Blur's song "Song 2" was actually meant as a "joke" piece, a spoof of alt-grunge scene that was popular at the time.  That's even gave it such a generic sounding name.  If you listen to the rest of their album, we'll find their music is radically different.  Crazily enough though, "Song 2" ended up being their only real hit.
