Claire McCaskill (never one to let a tragedy go to waste during an election year) has introduced legislation requiring DUKW boats to have higher safety regulations including the removal of all roofs. 

How kind of her and forward thinking of her.   ::)
If by some chance she gets re-elected you won’t see her for another 4 years around these parts

Not unless there is another accident with loss of life or injuries....

It would be political suicide to do nothing too.

Wish we could let the experts actually make the regulation changes instead of letting the political head just react because they have to or be labeled as being uncaring by there opponents.

She’s just so predictable on stuff like this.  I cannot wait for her to lose her seat.

She doesn't miss an opportunity to exploit a tragedy.

Have you ever met her in person?   She’s not a nice person.  Very fake.

I have not met her in person but she has helped a friend of mine so I will be voting for her. Maybe she is fake but she did what she promised to do for my friend. And that goes a long way with me. 

As for my original post I thought the unwritten rule was to not discuss politics but you opened the can.

Politics got involved with the topic at hand, therefore, this bypasses the obvious rule. That being said, they need to keep their noses out of the case, and let the investigators who are trained and experienced, work on it. Simple fact, mother nature is the only one at fault. Sue her.

I wonder if the Ripley's Believe it or Not locations are going to survive?  I haven't heard anyone talk about that.  Could the lawyers go after that whole business?  Sell off there collection of stuff?

If they're smart they'll have it set up as a separate division so that it would only be that division that takes the hint. but that doesn't mean that's how it's set up.
This is a stick up!  Get it? Stick.... Nevermind, it's a train robbery.  I want everyone to get your hands up and act scared.

Well... if they have to sell off their aquariums, HFEC could pick them up and that would be a win in my book. 
The Believe it or Not... would be a good fit for Merlin brand

Claire has made sure if she loses, that the money was good for her hubby while she was up there. No Todd Akin this time around.
