    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    That's a pretty long taxi cab ride.

    Wow, it sure is. No indication she works at Dairy Queen (her entire day's wages would have gone for cab fare), so she must have been meeting someone in the parking lot, maybe?

    A lot of information left out of that article. Her husband last saw her at "her" house at 6 p.m. Sunday. Last contact was by telephone Monday afternoon (is this with the cab company? She must have had contact with the cab driver in person I would think). Husband reported her missing Tuesday. Doesn't say whether she lives with her husband -- perhaps he left Sunday for a business trip or something. So . . . . a lot of gaps.

    Murphy's ex-husband told police relatives have not seen her since Sunday.
    Neighbors say Murphy lives alone in the southeast Cape Coral home near Veteran's memorial Parkway and Del Prado Boulevard.

    That looks like about 15 miles to me - not really a long cab ride.

    I don't see the cause for concern here. The ex last saw her on Sunday the 27th, and she was last seen by a disinterested party - the cabbie - on the 28th where he dropped her off in a parking lot of a dairy queen.

    It seems very very hopeful she's gone off on an adventure of some kind and will turn up fine.

    I wonder if there is surveillance video from nearby businesses.
