What happened to this young couple was unspeakably horrible, and there is of course no excusing such barbarism. It is hard, though, not to shake your head at the couple’s unworldly naivety.

Slightly more readers agreed with my impressions.
I doubt that....I seriously doubt that. But we'll never know that as National Review doesn't publish the reader's comments.
