Internet replaces Jerry Springer

It appears talk shows are no longer the only place to be ambushed by crazy relatives. The Toronto Sun (via Fark.com) reports:

«EDMONTON — The father of a boy who was taken from him 14 years ago by his estranged wife says his son learned last year he’d been abducted by seeing his own photo on the Internet. “He pulled up his own picture,” said the teenager’s 43-year-old father.

The father, an electrician who lives near Ponoka in central Alberta, said he learned in 2003 from a Canadian missing children’s organization that his long-vanished son was somewhere in California.»

That sort of thing isn’t likely to make a moody teenager more sociable.
