    Recently I had alludud to some ingenious ways that runaway slaves had found their way north. One story that sticks out is that of Henry "Box" Brown who was "mailed" northward to freedom in a cargo box.

    Well a recent news event has some parallels where a guy named Charles McKinley shipped himself to his parents to save money. Use "Charles McKinley" as a search on googlenews.

    BET has this article which compares and contrasts the stories of Henry "Box" Brown and Charles McKinley:,,c1gb7394-8213,00.html

    or put Henry Box Brown in as a search string in googlenews.
