Brits: anyone else sick to death of "Missing Madeleine"?

UGH!!!!!! For goodness sake. If I have to hear one more friggin news report on missing Madeleine and her damn appeal, I'm going to break something.



There's a lot more stuff going on in the world than a missing British girl abroad.

Women's tennis sucks.

Little girls are snatched every day. Hundreds of children go missing every day. Why should I have to hear or even care about this one particular girl every day for THREE WEEKS.

Re: Brits: anyone else sick to death of "Missing Madeleine"?

Yeah bit harsh. I may be fed up with the coverage but i understand why its being done.

Its important to keep the search in the news so people are aware of it.

I think its become so big cos it was a british family abroad, also it may be a factor that both parents are doctors. I have a friend who should be working with the dad in a hospital in leicter now.

Re: Brits: anyone else sick to death of "Missing Madeleine"?

Forgot to add, i don't think it looks good.

From watching Without a trace children who aren't found withint the first 48/92 hours not sure which one either don't turn up at all or are dead.

No kidding. Can you just imagine how drastically different this coverage would have been if the parents were chavs from Liverpool.

Well for a start they would have been lynched to death for leaving their 3 kids unattended while they went out for a meal and a drink...

Re: Brits: anyone else sick to death of "Missing Madeleine"?

Yes, I know what you mean.

As a sociologist, it's very interesting how one in a large number of these stories really take off and get so much publicity. (For me, I was just curious what part of Portugal they were vacationing in, because I'd love to go to Portugal sometime. )

I was just looking at a band on Myspace, for ex, and I noticed they had some kind of link or logo for Madeline. What can we do?

Re: Brits: anyone else sick to death of "Missing Madeleine"?

Well I sort of agree, I really want her to be found, and I feel for her family, but having it as the main news item when there are no new developments, nothing new in the search, etc. is weird

Still, it's a sad situation

Donate to the Missing Madeleine Fund!! They've apparently recieved or raised close to £3 million pounds now altogether. A businessman has offered a £1 million reward for information and colleague of the girl's mother has also offered £100,000.00. It's ridiculous.

As I've already said, kids are snatched and children go missing every day, hundreds of them. Why should I care or even donate money to this particular one?

OK, so they were in Portugal, she's pretty, her parents are doctors. But seriously, why has it been front page news here for three weeks!
