    why was it news?

    Look, not wanting a flame-war... But the dude fell off a dock, didn't he? Guess it was just dumb luck he wasn't driving or doing something else that'd have left him in a more vulnerable situation. Maybe you know better than me and he's got it under control. But don't fault me for repeating something that was in all the newspapers when it happened.

    Was never very good at math. Oddly, though, I can count by twos if I start at the number 1.

    •  He did not fall off a dock. And it was news (1+ / 0-)

      because it was sensational. You wanna muckrake? Go after his former law partner.

      The problem with stories like this that are "all over the news" is that often they are highly distorted. The other thing they do is violate people's neighbors' privacy, which is exactly what happened to me in this particular case.

      Argue the man's court decisions, and leave half-true media reports alone. You'll be doing better journalism than those who put it "all over the newspapers".

    •  For the record, he fell ON a dock, not off it (1+ / 0-)

      The same dock where I keep my boat.
