As a side note, I should note that I've known an occasional family whose
child(ren) were harmed badly enough to need a lot of therapy even when they
weren't touched and no laws had even come close to being broken.

This is one set of cases where I have to squelch my immense curiosity about
people and things, and trust that the people who do know have very, very
good reasons to keep details quiet.

Alban, who occasionally wishes very much that tarring, feathering,
and burning alive (after proper legal procedures) were permissible in 
some cases.
