Alabama Governor Bob Riley Calls for Aruba Boycott
Alabama Governor Bob Riley called for a travel boycott of Aruba until the island’s authorities cooperate more fully in the investigation into the disappearance of Natalee Holloway.
Alabama Gov. Bob Riley called for a travel boycott of Aruba on Tuesday until authorities on the Dutch Caribbean island cooperate more fully with the family of a Mountain Brook teenager who has been missing since a graduation trip in May. Riley asked the governors of the other 49 states to join him in urging a boycott of Aruba on behalf of the family of Natalee Holloway, an 18-year-old Mountain Brook High graduate last seen on the island May 30.
Thanks to the yeoman efforts of Greta Van Susteren, who has made covering this circus the focus of her career, one suspects people know about the case. It’s rather dubious for a state governor to be organizing a travel boycott under the circumstances.
