Readers react to Carmel High School’s same-sex “Cutest Couple” becoming an Internet sensation:
This is awesome!! Love the Dad’s support! We’ve come a long way, but certainly have much further to go in terms of acceptance. Thank you for being proud and normalizing your relationship to the world!!

Good for them, and kudos to Carmel High School for having such an accepting environment.

Way to go Carmel, that’s how it should be …

Readers comment on the shock expressed by missing Indiana University student Lauren Spierer’s parents after comments made by her boyfriend’s family:
… This is really sad, and I hope and pray that Lauren’s family gets some sort of answers or closure or (their) daughter back for that matter. It just goes to show that anything is possible. Any child can be involved in something without a parent knowing.
— Jen Tysall (via lohud.com)
From the sound of this news on Lauren, it sounds like she had three strikes against her with people breaking the law: first alcohol, then drugs, then gone without a trace. …
— Pat Burke (via lohud.com)
No parents should be attacked or do any attacking. For everyone to say what they would do is also a joke as no one knows what they would do if they were actually in either parents’ shoes. …
— Michael Meyer (via lohud.com)
… Somebody knows something … just bring this poor family the closure they deserve!
