Commentary on Politics & Culture

One of the most human-spirited stories, in the past few months.Sure beats the murder and mayhem.
Oh no...we need Trapp's law now...to require a floatation device on every small aircraft... and an aircraft down alert system too.
I think they already are supposed to have floatation devices when they fly over water. Maybe he should be fined. I ask you, did he fly over Canadian airspace without calling in first? Right there is $1000. And if he has a plane that means either he's a spoiled momma's boy or he's an evil Republican. Make that rich guy pay his fair share.
A great ending to a story. I never thought to see that he was found alive. The man must have thought he was going to be out there for- ever. 17 hours must have felt like forever.
The boat that rescued him was a Viking, a BIIIG, TALL boat and VERY expensive. Also probably owned by some rich guy who doesn't pay his fair share. Bastard. Maybe a rescue tax would make things more fair.
And you KNOW that big rescue boat didn't call in like he was supposed to. There's another $1000 into the Redcoat coffers. They had no right to rescue someone in trouble without getting clearance from an arrogant Queens Border Guard first. You can't let up on security. What if that boat had untaxed ciggies on board?
