36. Not surprising.
Edited on Thu Jan-14-10 01:11 PM by girl gone mad
I intentionally avoided a meeting where he was present a few years ago because of his predator reputation. I've always been young looking for my age, so I know his type very well. Trust me, if he wasn't in a chat room, he'd be out in the community trying to groom some naive underage girl into a very one-sided sexual relationship. These men get off on the manipulation as much as the sex. I'm sure he knew the risks of being in a chat room, but he was addicted to the power trip. In many countries, teenagers are much more street smart and know how to turn the tables. I'm surprised that American teenagers haven't become savvier.

Ritter's work on Iraq was commendable. I don't know that this should sully his professional reputation. It isn't as if he was a priest, cop or teacher.
