Large font in text message leads to child sex abuse arrests

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-40828788

        A nursery school teacher has been called a "hero" after she
        spotted a plane passenger allegedly sending text messages
        discussing child sexual abuse. The woman, who has not been
        named, was able to read the messages of the man in front of
        her on the Seattle-San Jose flight because they were in a
        large font on a large smart phone. She took pictures of the
        screen and informed airline staff, police say. It led to the
        arrests of Michael Kellar, and later Gail Burnworth. Two
        children, aged five and seven, have been identified as the
        alleged victims.

For the record, there appear to be conflicting reports on this story,
as to whether the children were found to be actually abused or not. I
suspect we're going to be hearing a great deal more about this
incident.
