    Should I post this in the Missing Forum?

    Volunteer groups from Findlay, Dayton and Columbus are helping officials in Noble County search for a monkey that remains on the loose after escaping from his owner on Monday.

    Do you think I would get timed out if I posted this in the missing forum? Mods? anyone?
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Does that mean you don't think I should or you don't think I would get a time out?

    This reminds me of a "family vacation" story. We always went camping across America, Canada, and Mexico for 3-6 week each summer when I was a kid. One year, while my brother was sleeping, we were driving down the interstate and I noticed something odd by the highway. About a mile or two later, I just couldn't stand it so I said, "Is it just me, or was there a monkey beside the road back there?" My parent started laughing hysterically--they had both seen it too, but thought that they had to have been imagining it!

    It means that I don't think that you should. I never said anything about a time out. The people who have family members missing and those people who work tiresly to bring them back home may not appreciate any "comparison" between a chimp and their loved ones. NOT that you were comparing, but you know what I mean.

    Actually I was just kidding. The way they were talking in the article about the searches that were being conducted for the monkey, reminded me of the searches for the missing. Until a few years ago they couldn't get that much attention for missing people, and now they are looking for attention for a missing monkey.

    This reminds me of a local case:

    K-9 dog went missing; scared by the 4th of July fireworks, apparently.
