Frantic (from the San Francisco Chronicle’s SFGate.com, regarding the San Francisco family lost (and partially found) in Oregon. Great headline word, and totally wrong here. Yes, someone somewhere is frantic over this guy’s whereabouts and condition. His friends and family, for sure. The searchers? If I were among the frantic ones, I’d hope they were determined, meticulous, thorough and fast; anything, in fact, but frantic.
