We’re Still Wondering Where Andrew Compton Is

This sad story about Andrew Compton’s memorial last night has us wondering where his body is:

Hundreds gathered in Noblesville tonight to reminisce about a missing Carmel High School graduate believed slain last month.

Andrew Compton, 18, disappeared from the Sullivan University campus in Louisville, Ky., on Oct. 28. Police believe Compton was slain by a man whom he’d met online, but they have yet to discover his body.

Outside the memorial service at Grace Community Church, family members preferred to think of an all-too-short life well lived than Compton’s tragic and untimely end. Cousin Sean Vance said the number of people who turned out for the ceremony was “very gratifying and humbling” for the family.

Where’d that alleged murderer leave his body? Disgusting.

Such a sad, screwed-up situation.

We don’t know the girl. And maybe she was acting worse than the average drunk. But we can’t figure out why it’s important news for days and days and days that a police officer was arrested while acting like an intoxicated psycho.

SHOCKER! The Pentagon says gays could serve in the military with no harm. Can you believe that? Gays? In the military? Imagine that. [HuffPo]

Some Really Do Care About Stopping Hunger

Last week I said you should support Dare to Care and you did.

Dozens of you turned out in the cold rain. Even more contributed financially.

And some of the wealthy folks I called out actually showed up – meaning no one has an excuse not to love this community and to support the hungry. Greg Fischer, Jim King, Tyler Allen, et al braved the gross weather.

Let’s be thankful for them. And remember to give.
