The Federal Bureau of Investigation has put Adam Yahiye Gadahn, 25, at the top of its list of people suspected of helping terrorists commit mayhem around the world.

Gadahn is one of those lost boys who found himself in Islam -- that most gentle of religions, which he celebrated by, according to Orange County police, punching a mosque elder when he critiqued the kid’s work skills. An even better contradiction is from today’s New York Times, which passes on an image of Gadahn as “seeking a simpler and less materialistic life than he had found in California.”

That life was as a child of a goat farmer and carpenter who “lived an isolated life ... ‘off the grid,’ relatives said, seldom watching television or using a telephone.”

Kids! Never satisfied.
