I read about this yesterday and just cringed when I saw that kid!=20

Maybe it's just me, but if some student exchange organization told me I =
couldn't email or contact my kid while he was in EGYPT for heaven's =
sakes, I'd have just said "No..you aren't going there."

And I'd also have done a LOT of research about the culturer and the =
religion of the people he was staying with, and would have been aware =
AHEAD of time, of the dietary restrictions.

The parents were asleep at the switch, and their son almost died because =
of it.

Now you watch them sue AFS for a bunch of money....and win.

That poor kid!
