    The Debevoise connection is pretty thin - he was gone from the firm for six months before the abuse is alleged to have begun. (Though the boy, now an adult, sued him saying it started much earlier and lasted much longer.) %0AThe NYTimes recently debated whether such abuse should be called %22rape,%22 seeing as sexual penetration of a child is statutory rape. See Editorial department columns by %22Public Editor%22 11/20/11 and 11/27/11. Good question - why should news media pull punches on the correct language?

  • Wow - Does anyone else notice the similarity between Apogee and The Second Mile? Non-profits set up to supposedly help disadvantaged children and young people deserve a higher level of scrutiny!!
