    Day 6 of search for missing firefighters spreads far and wide up to the Carolinas

    I had been wondering why so many were listening to the scanner there. Over 13,000 yesterday, Jacksonville Beach Marine
    The sixth day of searching for two firefighter friends missing since a Friday fishing trip is down to 150 volunteers in 40 boats hunting in the waters from Port Canaveral and Jacksonville up to Charleston, even as far north as Cape Hatteras, according to fire department and Coast Guard officials.After calling Wednesday's search a "race against time" to find Jacksonville firefighter Brian McCluney, 37, and Virginia firefighter Justin Walker, 33, those searchers join Coast Guard and other federal agencies still looking for the men last seen leaving a Port Canaveral boat ramp.

    They are dead and gone, their boat now hauling either drugs or illegals up the coast. I don't want to sound pessimistic but truth is truth. A vast number of things could have happened. They could have encountered a whale who overturned their boat, they could have been struck by a passenger ship and sunk, they could have encountered pirates who killed them and took their boat. Whatever happened they are dead and gone.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    I got a Broadcastify notice, too and checked it.

    I hope they find them but the longer it takes, the bleaker the outlook.
    I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men.
