The Holloway Case

I saw the thing on TV last night interviewing the van der Sloot kid and it struck me how much older he looked and spoke. Granted, he was probably coached pretty well before coming on, but it made me think of something completely unrelated to the missing girl.

That young people who are traveled or at least are aware of other cultures are so much more advanced, both intellectually and in other facets, than their American counterparts. Which can be bad, because they become adults quicker and can lie their way of things, but it just struck me how much more advanced this kid seemed than you average, 18-year-old American kid.

An American kid would've been on with his father or lawyer, probably would've cried, and wouldn't have been nearly as composed as this kid was.

Just a thought.
