Madeleine McCann

I have written only one post before this about the disappearance of Madeleine McCann; I have updated that post tonight. I don't plan to write any more about it until and unless something of substance develops. I see little utility in endless speculation in the absence of 'facts' on which to base theories about what has happened to her; there is more than enough of that in the British and Portuguese media, not to mention the 'blogosphere' where there are both fervent supporters and detractors of the girl's parents. Some of the recent developments have been extraordinary, but I suspect that our sensibilities will face more shocks before it becomes clear, if it ever does, what fate has befallen this young girl.
