This is a very sad situation, but it makes me wonder about the wealthy being rescued at sea vs the poor.

Do you think they would have sent an ROV down to look for the bodies of the couple in LA (that got hit by the barge) if he had not been the brother of two state assembly persons?

This is a very expensive rescue, I hope it succeeds.

Oh, I see that the the republicans are here.

It is a sad fact that many black folks don't swim, but at least Cooper does.

I'd rather be unable to swim than unable to think (like you you racist t-u-rd).

Completely unnecessary comment. As a matter of fact, a news interview with family members stated that the NFL player is an excellent swimmer, and an experienced boater.

Nature is unforgiving. It only takes seconds for a boat to capsize.
