So let me get this straight, a raft full of little children and cute kittens flipped and all the kittens and children died because the playboaters couldn't get to them as they had no paddles because they needed one hand for the schlitz and the other for the turkey leg as they threw loops while debating Sarah Palin, plus they were hypothermic without any coats in their playboats? So then the asshole playboaters went to warm themselves up in their Nissan 370Zs, but they all died too because they couldn't find the keys?

And you watched all of the kittens die. You watched all the children die. You laughed as the play boaters died by their fancy sports cars of hypothermia and unbandaged hang nails. You could have helped, but instead you dropped your innertube and bandaids and your coors light and hurried to teh intranetz to rant and get high! You should be banned from tubing the river FOREVERRRRRR!

Cats are a waste of air... I wish more boats full of kittens would flip.

Hey! I like cats like everyone! I like them baked in a oven at 400 degrees for a couple of hours and served with a lemon sauce!

Bazaar foods FTW! Or FTL of your lunch, whichever it may be! My wife loves that show, but I could do with out it.

I believe in karma and it would also have been heavy on your conscience if you would not have lent your hand and your strength to those who need it.

Witnessed the incident in question and I was stunned. These same people had one of their party swim out of their boat right after our launch at Stone Bridge. Our group retrieved the boat, she self rescued,and we sat in an eddy with them for 20 minutes while she walked down to us and got her boat. I did not know them personally, thought it just river courtesy. When a 2 person Tomcat overturned in rapids later, the female beginner riding shotgun took way too long a swim in some pretty cold water. Her more experienced female companion was able to self rescue. She was finally intercepted by 2 of her group further downstream and brought out okay, but cold, on river left. Members of the group were separated at various points along river left and did not know of her downstream rescue. Her duckie companion was upstream, frantic with worry. Whistles were blowing, people calling out, etc. Although they were obviously experienced kayakers, in a position to effectively assist in the rescue, they chose not to get involved and paddled off downstream. W.T..F
