Give Jill a Break

SHAME ON ANYONE WHO STARTS JUMPING TO CONCLUSIONS -- FOR IDEOLOGICAL OR OTHER REASONS -- ABOUT A WOMAN WHO'S JUST SPENT 82 FREAKING DAYS IN CAPTIVITY.  YES, OUR 24/7 NEWS-AND-PUNDITRY UNIVERSE DEMANDS INSTANT ANALYSIS, BUT HOW ABOUT LETTING THE POOR WOMAN BREATHE FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS BEFORE WE ASSAULT HER WITH AMATEUR PSYCHOLOGY AND SELF-SERVING COMMENTARY? THERE'LL BE PLENTY OF TIME TO SORT OUT HER STORY.
