And our next story begins in Merry Old England when Julia Romp, she gives birth to what she hopes is a healthy baby boy.<p>JULIA ROMP: George was an unusual baby - just cried, very agitated and the first signs immediately to everybody was that there is something wrong with him. Three to six months come along - he never smiled.

They want to be rescued from whatever it is they find themselves in. But what if you're fine? What if you've got it together, but you stumble across an injustice? Do you walk on by? Or do you make it your problem?<p>SNAP JUDGMENT regular contributor Katie Mingle tells us her story.<p>KATIE MINGLE, BYLINE: I stole a dog once. He was a little curly-haired mutt; a small, pathetic creature. I'd been walking by him for years, and he was always there on the same three-foot length of chain.

Today, we're talking to people who find themselves in a whole heap of trouble and they're frantically trying to dig themselves out. Now, coincidentally, SNAP JUDGEMENT's producer Mr. Mark Ristich - he spends the majority of his time in a whole heap of trouble, trying frantically to dig himself out.<p>MARK RISTICH, BYLINE: It's over. It's officially over. We're given our stuff back and we get to the books. She hands me my book by Henry David Thoreau. It's not "Walden." It's his journal entries.

It was a dark room, there was a nightlight on. As soon as I walked in, I felt like there was a presence or a person standing behind me. So instinctively, my shoulders went up and I turned around quickly but there was nothing there. I'd never felt something like this before. And the only way I can describe it - as if someone had an electric glove and was rubbing the length of my back.

I'm doing a special Uncle Glynn's SNAP JUDGMENT "Campfire Tales." All right, all right, all right, all right - it's from NPR and PRX. I said it. And I've got a story for y'all that comes straight from the darkness. So there's this guy I knew. His name is Alan, and he worked with mental patients in the Midwest. And he started working in a wing with the healthiest people, but Alan wanted to be where the action was. He actually asked to be transferred to the acute ward which housed some of the most psychotic people in the region.

If something ever looks too good to be true, run away.<p>NICOLE SELKEN: The funny thing about it is when I walked in the door the first time, there was kind of a pretty big wooden picture frame with all these little pictures in it. It was the only thing in the house.
