Re: Sailboat perishes off Hatteras, USCG rescues crew
Unfortunately, we now live in a culture that has decided it will make the world safe for everyone in every situation, damned the cost, damned the idea of personal responsibility and consequences for raw stupidity. We've decided to protect the stupid and irresponsible at the expense of everyone else. I feel bad for the kids on USCG duty, ski patrols, and mountaineering patrols who have to risk their lives because of irresponsible, ignorant, idiots. Ask me how I feel about this issue.
