  •  Verbosity? (8+ / 0-)

    You keep using that word.  I do not think it means what you think it means.

    I think you are looking for the phrase "beautifully written" although I have no idea why you would apologize - unless you feel bad for those of us who are not so gifted.

    Sad tell with no happiness.  Father, it would seem, did all things right - a responsible gun owner perhaps.  And the son acted like a 13 year old - and let exuberance rule the day.  Tragic all around.

      I have tried to avoid passing too much judgement on that guy's actions. I have little direct info about exactly how much time and training the boy may have received other than on that day. My own training has been extensive but in my opinion my chances of a making fatal mistake aren't all that different. I'd have known better than to shoot over water but there are an infinite number of other opportunities for a simple, tragic mistake.
