I have just examined perhaps 8 on-line reports on Scott Lee Zulfer, who has pleaded guilty to 69 counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child and 11 additional charges of ongoing sexual abuse over a 3 year period. He has been sentenced to 80 life sentences. The man is from Texas.

I have recounted virtually all I can learn about this case from reading the on-line reports.

Now, should I conclude that Mr. Zulfer, as a Texan, has exhibited behavior "typical of Texans"? If I could learn his trade or place of employment (no article I read mentioned this), would I be justified in thinking that all such employees are likely also child abusers?

Is there a reason why this is not on front pages of news services across the country?

If the perpetrator were a Catholic priest, where and how would this reporting have been done?
