    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."

    Biochemistry major - means a couple of things to me. 1.) He's ambitious and smart - wants to be a scientist, physician, etc. 2.) The required classes for a Biochem major at IU are hard and seem intended to weed out people who are not suited for medical school. Wonder if he had a bad exam score or two and just decided to give up and quit school. I hope not.

    I would think that it's a little early in the school year for that, but that's just MOO.

    Police don't suspect foul play in Medley's disappearance, but they have few leads to his whereabouts after searches of Smedley’s residence, car, computer and phone records. Family members said Smedley told them he planned to leave the country. http://www.heraldtimesonline.com/fre...ba094f385.html

    I just saw the text he sent his sister at 4:15 AM. He says that by not telling her where he is going he is protecting her. That she shouldn't try to contact him on his phone because it won't work and that he will contact her once he is overseas. He says that he loves her and thanks her for everything.

    Hope he just needed some time to think things through.
    Go home, Joseph.

    I would guess he's in Indianapolis. hopefully, they're checking friends back home.
