Teenage Hi Jinx

Michael Yon's Online Magazine provides a riveting story of teenage hi jinx that reminds me of Huck Finn with a dash of Rambo. Here's an excerpt:

"Gators often swallow their prey whole, but if it’s too big, they will violently rip it to pieces by shaking their heads or spinning in the water. Sometimes they hide their catch on the bottom under a log until it rots, or keep it between their jaws while it softens. Gators are not normally aggressive toward people, but this was nighttime and we were literally swimming with them. The threat they represented was very real. I was becoming seriously afraid, more so than I had imagined, and wanted to turn around. This was truly stupid, I thought, but we kept going."

Have a great 4th of July and remember those who can't make the BBQ because they're off on some pretty ugly business.
