    "Durham police are searching for two suspects..."

    Call me stupid, but I don't understand. I guess its a different world in some of these families. These two boys are 16. Why do the police have to 'search' for these boys? I guarantee you the cops wouldn't have to 'search' for my kids. Because I would KNOW where they are. Why is there a 'search'? Can't they simply ask their Mom or Dad and get an INSTANT answer? Ahhhhh! But that's the problem. The parents don't know WHERE their kids are. As I said, I can't understand this type of parenting or family atmosphere. And I'm glad I can't understand it.

    The difference between following directions and not following directions is that sometimes by not following directions you miss the boat and sometimes you find out it's faster to fly~ daniel stuliman

    notagain: It would be awesome if you read the article instead of skimming for key words. The golf cart was stolen from DUKE HOMESTEAD, a state historic site and part of the Department of Cultural Resources--A STATE AGENCY! It was not, as you imply, stolen from Duke University. And it's the attitude that "this is just mischief" that has our world in the condition that it's in. When you commit a crime (and THEFT is STILL a crime as well as destruction of state property), you have to be held accountable. BTW: the golf cart is used to cart disabled and geriatric visitors around the site, not on a golf course.

    And this is headline news why?? Teenagers doing mischief and stealing a golf cart from Duke... Oh that must be the reason. Wonder if it would have made any noise if it was from Hillandale golf course...?
