I almost forgot that it is July. Halfway through another calendar... OMG, OMG, OMG... what a half a year it has been.

I recognize that this story is not over, yet, but I have been buoyed all day by this: Thailand cave rescue: Boys found alive after nine days. I never expected this to happen.

I'm surprised as well, and happy for the rescued and their families. smile

Remember, this is a W. pick. Literacy was not a hallmark of his administration, either. I think, though, that the judge in question misses the larger point - whether literacy is a "fundamental right" is largely immaterial, because it has become an "Equal application of the law" problem since the legislature now insists that literacy is a requirement to "graduate" third grade.

I think the solution might be to teach those kids how to scuba dive. They have brought in months worth of food, so they have lots of time to do it. The distances of flooded caves they have to traverse is incredible. It might be faster to just drill a shaft down to where they are.

I was thinking the very same thing. Hmm One map that I saw showed that the group was 1.25 miles in from the mouth of the cave.

How did they get in there with a dry cave floor bed in the first place? Did water "suddenly" come from behind them? Hmm
