Now that the "kidnapping" of 16-year-old Kelsey Stelting of Independence has been revealed as no such thing, Kansans caught up in the drama surrounding Tuesday’s Amber Alert can only wonder what would cause anyone to tell such a costly fib and, in the process, mobilize multiple law enforcement agencies. Maybe the tale will at least deter other kids from doing such a thing. Then again, as the sextuplets scam in Missouri this week again demonstrated, people of all ages think they can get away with really dumb things.
