A River Runs Through It, and Through It, and Through It, and Through It....

Muskegon River tubing trip turns into overnight nightmare for three women "They were informed by somebody at the bridge that the river goes in a circle and if they put in there they would come back to their car."

They didn't tell them about the turn they missed either.

I see map reading is not one of their skills.

These three, their faith in Big Daddy government will take care of all his children is sadly reaffirmed. Three miles. Wailing for help. The police boat a quarter mile away.

A worse example of useless humanity can not be found.

For Pete's sake! I have bush whacked more than three miles across trackless buckthorn and deerbrush and giant rotting deadfall. With a giant backpack at the beginning of a long multi-day trip. With twelve year old Scouts in tow. And a good time was had by all. (Well one Scout whimpered a little at the end of the difficult stretch.)

America deserves everything that will happen to her.

"Yo, mister."
"Where do we get into the river?"
"Oh, anywhere's just fine. See, it runs in a circle."
"Ooohhhh. That's awesome."
"Yeah, all rivers run in a circle."
"Really, I didn't know that."
"Yeah. Now, you take your Mississippi River. It starts up near Canada and it runs all the way down to Loooziana, and then it hangs a U turn and goes back up through Texas."
"Well, maybe we'll do that river...what did you call it...Mistersippy."
"Yeah, Mistersippy. And his wife runs right alongside. Missussippi. They have two kids. Ohiosippy and Coloradosippy... Well, I gotta go slop the hog---I mean, get my wife a sandwich. You just put in here and I'll see you in a little while."
