Apparently this all unraveled due to greed. The boy's have family in MA who want custody of them (IMO for greater state-aid). This custody idea was not even a thought till Jerry went looking for permission to move them to MA with him. The father of one realized this advantage in TX.
Apparently, no one really gave the state-aid issue much though until jerry went looking. In fact, this money-angle was the instant, knee-jerk reaction by one member of the Ricky Lake Nation gang down there in Odessa TX.
Its turned into one great big cluster-fk so the poor stray boys will not be coming to live with Jerry and his stable, sane home.
Anyone else got any good aspects of humanity to point out to me today?
