Dad Records iTunes Album to Fund Investigation For Missing Daughter

http://www.cnn.com

Paul Sacco says searching for his missing daughter feels like something akin to bleeding out. All the hope, heartache and anxiety that go into it leave him feeling diminished.

When The Rabbi Asked Me For 100 Million Dollars

http://hosted-p0.vresp.com
