Re: Real life playing out one of my ideas.
I thought about the possibility that they might try to get to Cuba, The Bahamas, Jamaica, or where ever. Then I thought, did they plan this far enough ahead to have gotten passports for themselves and the kids? Probably not. So I think they are going to have a lot of trouble getting any other country to let them in. My guess is that they're up a river trying to hide somewhere.
Eventually they are going to get caught. I can only hope that the idiot parents don't do something to endanger the children when that time comes. But given their record so far, I'm afraid that they probably will.
