Long Island "Death Yacht" Only Technically a Yacht

Yesterday they raised the "Kandi Won," which is the "DEATH YACHT" (as per the Post) that sunk on the 4th of July, on Long Island, killing three children. It's not really germane to that tragedy, but when the tabloids went wild over "Long Island Yacht Disaster" and the like, I most certainly was not picturing this wee 34-foot Silverton. (On which I would no sooner board 27 people than I would try to land a helicopter on it.) Anyway, terrible story, very sad, and I blame the media.

Just goes to show how the only accuracy in reportage these days comes from sports writers, who would know a fishing boat when they saw one.

I make the same joke for every Post story, but if they don't give a fuck, neither do I.
