It hasn’t been headline news, but New York Times reporter David Rohde was kidnapped by Taliban elements and held captive for the last 7 months. That’s not forever but it’s a long time. He was writing a book. He escaped and is safe.
“[Rohde’s] father, Harvey Rohde, said that while he regretted that his son had made the trip, he understood his motivation, ‘to get both sides of the story, to have his book honestly portray not just the one side but the other side as well.’
“I guess that personifies my son,” Mr. Rohde said.”
Happy Father’s Day, gentlemen.
