I am Irrationally Fascinated by this News Story
Governor of South Carolina Goes Missing
Honestly, I don't blame the guy for wanting some time to clear his head and get away by himself for a few days. I understand that desire to spend some time alone.
However, when one is a GOVERNOR of a STATE, it seems to me it would be PRUDENT to tell your staff where you are. And, oh, I don't know, maybe alert the person who's second-in-command, in case there is a some kind of emergency that might require the attention of the person who is supposed to be running an entire state.
What I find most curious is this statement about the governor's wife:
"The governor's wife, Jenny Sanford, told The Associated Press she had not seen him since Thursday but was not concerned because he'd told her he wanted to get away and do some writing." (Emphasis added.)
Perhaps the Sanford's have a different kind of marriage than, say...the average married couple.
But, if I hadn't seen my HUSBAND in DAYS, and he was missing ON FATHER'S DAY and I didn't know where he was...I am pretty sure I would not be telling people that I hadn't heard from him but was not concerned.
(And, those of you who know me in real life are thinking that if I hadn't seen Husband in days and didn't know where he was that I would have to be sedated because I would a.) be completely hysterical with worry and b.) would have called the police, the FBI, and in all likelihood, some kind of psychic.)
Wasn't the woman worried that he might have been KIDNAPPED? I mean, it seems to me that a sitting governor would be a prime asset for a terrorist kidnapping?
I don't care who you are, but disappearing without any explanation of your whereabouts to your loved ones is RUDE and CRUEL and a little bit crazy.
So, what do you think? Was he hiking? Was he in Argentina? Or was he holed up in a hotel room with a lovah?
I would put my money on the last option...
