Re: The Emotions Over The Bounty Tragedy

Wonderful post, Roger.

Julie,
In my recollection, there have been multiple long posts arguing for and against the wisdom of the decisions made in most of the tragedies which end up being discussed here. This one may be a little more rancorous, but it follows the pattern of previous discussions.
Except for the personal attacks which follow from these discussions, I think they're good in making us more aware of the gravity of our own decisions. Maybe they'll make us all safer sailors.
