Why is this headline so exciting? What's with the exclamation point? Are these stories written by 1st graders?

How can people be so unprepared!
Glad the kid is safe, and I hope mom does not try breeding again. What an airhead!
Locals too! You would think they would know better.

The mother is an absolute MORON. How unprepared was she? Running out of gas? No means of communication? Jumping overboard with a small child? Someone needs to investigate this lady. She does not sound fit to be a mother, or even a boater for that matter.

I want to know the REAL story! exclamation point!

The story is really strange when they say the mother and child "tried" to swim to land. How does a 2 year old swim to land?

Very strange story.

The story is exciting because they had been missing for some time causing authorities and family members to fear the worst.

This is EXCELLENT! So little good news nowadays. God bless mommy, baby and everyone who cares for them, AMEN!

Ouoth the Sun-Sentinel: "The boat ran out of gas shortly after they departed..." NO, the boat is an inanimate object. The boater failed to put gas in her boat before departure; or, the boater ran her boat out of gas. As usual, it's all about personal responsibility, which no longer seems to exist for the leftist press.

Jim, take your meds and go to bed for eight years. When you wake up you might, if you're lucky, have anohter Republican retard as President. Somehow I doubt it, so be prepared for another eight years of a government actually doing something for the people who voted them in, and not the corporations who contributed to campaign coffers!

Brilliant. Throw a 2 year old in the water and swim to shore.

Boaters, you've missed the key word....Bayliner. Not a boat designed for the ocean, a lake, canal or pond.

So that leaves us with the next question, how many idiots own a Bayliner in Key Colony?
