4 Ethiopian athletes missing in Scotland

Barry Artiste Op/Ed
Those poor souls, 4 Ethiopian Athletes missing?  One wonders if they were kidnapped for their running and jumping prowess? Certainly a skill in great demand I asume in Scotland.  Lets hope a world wide manhunt will find them safe from harm, so Scottish officials can promptly put them on a plane to Ethiopia, cause I am sure they are homesick and eager to get home in time for dinner!
