Maybe They'll Found Rome?

By AR - Legend has it that the founders of Rome, Romulus and Remus were suckled by a she-wolf as abandoned infants. As legends go it is... fabulous, but when you hear the modern day equivalent you'll get a shiver down your spine.
The UK Telegraph reports on coroner Alistair Hope's investigation into aboriginal suicide rates: "Aboriginal children in Outback Australia are so neglected by their alcoholic parents that some have suckled from dogs' teats in a desperate search for food."
These are the same sort of children Kevin Rudd has apologised to on our behalf... not for allowing such a situation to occur, but for actually rescuing them from their plight. Is there some nuance that I don't get?
