But seriously, just for a moment

I can see the Bolivian President's point.

In Canada, the Indian act was a document full of the values of its time - it was by today's standard condescending and parochial in its handling of Indian affairs. The best thing to do is scrap it, and start from a clean slate.

I love this quote from the first story.

"It's an absolute mystery how they got here," said Tony Amos, a research fellow at the University of Texas Marine Science Institute in Port Aransas.

You don't suppose they swam do you??? I mean, I am not a Marine biologist or anything but I really don't think they carjacked a semi an drove.

It is a helluva long swim. I initially was thinking the whales vacation in the Gulf of Mexico (west side of Florida). Dumb me... I had to check a map to realize that Georgia does not have a coastline on the Gulf. It only has an Atlantic coast. These whales had to swim south way the **** around Florida then way on over to Texas. I guess they are just a bit out of their ordinary winter stomping ground. It's not THAT big of a deal though. It would be a bigger story if they were seen snorkeling around Costa Rica or in the Sea of Japan.

Granted it was a long swim.

And if he would have said, "We don't know why they swam here." It would have been diffrent.
