Skillings slowly improving, still no arrests

Posted by Geeky Swedes on January 29th, 2008

Students from Adams Elementary signed a big yellow banner for Joseph Skillings, who’s recovering at Harborview Medical Center after getting attacked at a Capitol Hill bus stop for trying to help a woman in distress. Now the banner is hanging in his room, and Skillings is “bragging” about his students, according to the latest entry from friends and family in his online journal. Meanwhile, it’s been a few days since police released a sketch of the suspect, and there’s no word of any arrests. And if you missed it, the Times wrote up a story on Sunday about Skillings and his “core ethic” of teaching his students to help others.
