Note to self when drowning in the Niagara River, if rescued report to US customs first


Two Toronto-area men are behind bars in Buffalo after being dramatically rescued from the Niagara River.

Both were riding Sea-Doos when they were knocked into the water after hitting strong currents.

One was rescued by a US tour boat, the other was washed ashore. They were taken into custody by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Service and were charged with failure to report on landfall into the States.
They will attend a closed hearing before an immigration judge today. It's expected, they'll either be issued a removal order and deported back to Canada or the judge may dismiss the charges against them.

"If a removal order is issued, the two will need to go through an extensive application process in order to return to the U.S."
So much for that the largest unprotected border claim at least on the south side.

Canada's department of foreign affairs has declined to comment.

Shall I sarcastically state that these two men should be sent to Guantanamo Bay?

I was stopped by a German border patrol car and the officers asked if I had any cheap cigarettes in my daypack. After showing my passport and my daypack, I was let go and continued my journey into Germany.

But, at least I didn't take my gun to a pizza joint to break up a pedophilia ring in the basement and end up getting four years in prison, like Ed Welch from North Carolina.

Boys are not allowed to hit girls

Don't do much anymore except make breakfast for one of my grandkids, a seven year old boy, walking him to school, picking him up and then having philosophical conversations about his day. Living in the basement of my daughter's house, I really try, to not interfere with their parenting, but what the hell, right now he spends as much time with me during the week, than he does with them.

The other day my daughter who came home early and ended up eavesdropping on our conversation about when to fight and when to walk away. Apparently it was one of those days in the school yard.

"Look, it is really simple" I started, "there are only two rules about fighting.The first rule is, you don't start the fight, but if a boy hits you, hit him back, as hard and as fast as you can and don't stop until he runs away." He liked that part and demonstated how he would punch. "In other other words," I continued "you will only be in trouble if you started the …
