It was a good episode. Love the story behind Georgie becoming a salesman

Is that true about children and buses ? I can't believe they're not allowed to travel alone as old as ten and the police would stop a bus.

He was traveling on a coach bus without parental knowledge or permission.

I know. I was asking whether it was true he needed it at his age.  Calling the police seemed somewhat OTT and as for them taking any notice ......I was surprised.

I don't live in the USA but it does not seem OTT to me. The Amber Alert system originated in the US. This was not a case of abduction but his parents did not really know what was happening. On the other hand the Amber Alert system only came into existence in 1996. 

By the way I live not far from where Clifford Olson had his killing spree in the early 80s. The culture here is quite different to where I grew up in Alberta in regards to freedom for kids.

Sheldon left a note to say where he was going. If his parents thought he might get lost trying to find his way to a hospital in a strange town, the sensible thing would have been to get a  cab firm recommended by the hospital to collect  him when he got off the bus. Sheldon has his unworldlinesses and gullibilities, but he's ten, not four. If the police know what he's like and consider him vulnerable, I can see they might have stretched a point and got a colleague from the other town to meet him off the bus. But following the bus, sirens going and everything ? 

I think they could have made the incident more interesting by having the hospital rules refuse to let unaccompanied children under fourteen see patients and then somehow  Doctor Sturgis catch a glimpse of Sheldon, followed by funny developments.

I'm wondering why Medford didn't have its own psychiatric facility.
