Maybe the bigger story is that duck boats are pieces of crap, always have been, the NEWEST of them were made in the mid-forties, and every one of them must be decommissioned. It's not even a real boat! It's a bus you can steer in water and that's about it.
As for ignoring the Middle East, which channels do you watch?? If you think you're not getting enough news, get a Facebook account. Two of my 77 friends on Facebook are screaming-rabid Liberals who, between the two of them, outpost ALL of my other friends put together. And when they're not bitching about Trump, they're screaming about how unfair the universe is to everybody else BUT us, but we suck so it doesn't matter.
