I read this article and then read the article that Gwen Florio wrote for the Missoulian. I have to say that Gwen completely fucked her article up. When describing the incident, she uses language like David "plowed" into the girls. Plowed? Really? This is a tragic incident and exploiting it like that is terrible. Her article was hard to read because it was written by an ignorent reporter. Jamie's article was hard to read because it was sad but more over appropriate. I have to say that I am disappointed Gwen never mentioned the DUI that one of the mother's got into afterword. I think that the mothers also need to take some responsibility in the fact that a fourteen and fifteen year old should not be walking along the side of the road in the middle of the night. I feel so sorry for everyone involved in the tragedy, and Jamie has written a beautiful article.
