The old saying among rescuers in the Coast Guard is:

"You have to go out--You don't have to come back".

I worked with some Coasties in DC - this was their saying when talking about lunch on Friday.

It happens so frequently that it feels like harassment. The locals call them the "blue meanies". Fortunately they usually focus on the power boaters.
IMHO they should hand out LARGE fines till the public get's it.
At which point they should go to the unemployment line. Job done.

Re: A Chat with the U.S.C.G.

When they are doing "police" duties they can be annoying, but when you are in more C*&p than you can handle, chances are they are going to be the only ones who will come and bail you out.

If I was president, I would seperate the two functions....well that and come up with a more sensible drug and immigration policy.
