Kids, the ocean is big, really big! That little thing floating in the picture above is Abby Sunderland's dismasted boat. I don't know if you realize it from the photo, but that water is rough.
The Abby affair has stirred up a hornet's nest of opinions. People are grousing all over the place about Abby's parents letting her go off on her solo circumnavigation. "How irresponsible of them!" "Call child protective services!" Come on guys, it was made for TV! (High seas, drama, danger and adventure.) Ratings baby, it's all about the ratings...and maybe a book deal. How about a movie?
Thank God for the Flying Kangaroos, an EPIRB and French fishermen.
