I’ve had to slightly edit this letter regarding Thursday’s column, but thought it was worth sharing:
News worthy? It depends on one’s perception of the story, I guess. Yet, with the TMZ loaded, UTube star studded events that choke the news daily– including your own — when the Lindsey, Spears, Hilton … stories based more on voyeurism than humanity command the light; where clips of Hiltons Chihuahua, Brittany’s (privates), and Lindsey’s lesbian affair are aired on the major networks and we are like…WOW’D–
Yes,I believe the Davis storyabsolutely shines.
Why? I mean, who cares? Everyday cowardly punks prey on the less fortunate. What makes the Davis story so news worthy?Simply this…at the end of the day theirs is less a story of tragedy than it is one of triumph. Against all odds they have survived. Lacking glamour, their story is a testament to the strength and power of the human spirit.
Their story is as mucha “purse” story as Titanic is a “boat” story.
I also received this email, which came via our Letters to the Editor:
Article in Around the Region in today’s (April 1) edition of the
“The former owners of Moe the chimp . . .” WHERE IS MOE? IF THE
DAVISESDON’T OWN HIM NOW, WHO DOES???
I have wondered what’s happened to him for quite a while now, and I’m
sureI’m not the only person who has wondered that.
Thanks for any information you can email me.
My boss Steve Hunt was also interested in finding out Moe’s whereabouts, so I asked super attorney Gloria Allred and the Davises that very question Wednesday. They answered that Moe has been moved to another facility. They did not release the name. The Davises still visit their “son” once a week, Ms. Allred said.
Finally, I received an email from Allred as well. Here’s the last line:
Mr. and Mrs. Davis have been through so much. It is heartbreaking to see them suffer from yet another senseless act.
As of Thursday afternoon, police said they’ve had no luck identifying the woman suspected of snatching LaDonna’s purse inside Target in West Covina.
