It does smell like the "conversations" that Reich or Krugman have when they want to write a column.OTOH, when I was a kid in St. Pete we used to find bales of pot washed up on the beach frequently enough that it wasn't worth comment.-XC
Too good to check.
Like the dishwasher Trump refused to pay wages to.
Pilots refer to the Cessan Citation as the Munson Burner.Another go-fast celebrity death.
Expat(ish) said...OTOH, when I was a kid in St. Pete we used to find bales of pot washed up on the beach frequently enough that it wasn't worth comment.I hear that's nasty, dangerous stuff. So dangerous that the only safe way to dispose of it is to burn it, and then only in small quantities at a time.
The bag with the signed balls had his checkbook in it. Maybe he was signing the balls for charity auctions.
@Ig - @LOL
He might have taken them with him to sign while on the boat. That seems like the kind of activity you would do to get it finished while at the same time trying to enjoy a nice day. Why stay cooped up in your house signing balls when you could do it in the fresh air and sunshine on the ocean?
"I'm really skeptical about the autographed baseballs washing up on the beach."I would be if the finder had kept them and the story was written. There would be a definite financial motive. But turning them over to authorities...
Trust in God . . .But Steer Away from the Rocks.
"Fritz said...Trust in God . . .But Steer Away from the Rocks."Pretty sure they never saw them, or saw them too late. Not too different than snowmobile drivers hitting islands on frozen lakes.
"Why stay cooped up in your house signing balls when you could do it in the fresh air and sunshine on the ocean?"Texting while driving?
What is poignant are the balls he signed saying "Dear God Help Me I'm Drowning".I am The Replacement Laslo.
If I was going to forge the signature of Jose Fernandez on something in that bag, his checkbook would be more remunerative than the baseballs.
The baseballs, I might buy. But the 200 signed jerseys and the completed handwritten novel? I'm calling bullshit.
He was a passenger, not the boat operator. But the charts and GPS almost surely had the rock pile marked, and with a little care, this need never have happened.
Nothing good happens to people out at 3:00 AM in Miami. And the Baseball season was not over.
1200 horsepower + dense fog + idiot operator = boat in barNot a sand bar. An actual bar.http://www.tampabay.com/news/publicsafety/accidents/vessel-slides-up-ruskin-shoreline-and-crashes-into-little-harbor/2218816Add another 300HP and he could have made the parking lot...
baseballs float for only about 10-20 seconds then they sink. So perhaps they rolled ashore on the bottom of the bay. Sure. Why not?
@Just_Mike_S, go here. The baseballs were in a zipped-up waterproof bag.
The sad part is that his arrogant, foolish recklessness cost other people their lives and will deprive his child of a father.
Are you kidding? Beginning with OJ’s butchery and slow-motion chase twenty years ago, we have experienced event after event that even the boldest novelist would be embarrassed to write because they are too implausible for real life and too on-the-nose for a satirist.
