Weekly News Comment #12

Filed Under (Uncategorized) by Emily on 20-11-2011

I have a  few questions about this article. Where specifically was the boy when his sandwich was stolen? Was he sitting on a park bench? Was he waiting to cross the street?

Apparently, the men were so hungry they didn’t care about the boy’s cell phone. Maybe they were homeless and desperate to find something, anything to eat.

Why is this news? I think this could be considered news in a local newspaper. However, I don’t think this is worthy of being national news.

 I hope the boy is okay, and that his loved ones are looking out for him.

What I really want to know is, “Why did the men steal the sandwich? Did it look delicious, oozing with meatball sauce and cheese? Did the boy cut in line ahead of them at Blimpie’s? When I read a news story, I want details! At the rate at which Yahoo’s articles are getting smaller, they will soon be only a few sentences long.

File it under bizarre, I suppose. Not much here, other than that someone was robbed of a sandwich at gunpoint. To find out more, you will have to hope the newspaper covers the trial and interviews the thieves.
