Way to go, Diana Nyad!

 Two headlines on the Internet today from the world of aquatics caught my eye.

CNN: Diana Nyad a baby boomer hero

Yahoo!: Beyonce rocks '60s style bikini

   In all seriousness (wait a minute, the above was a serious observation on the state of online journalism), congratulations to Ms. Nyad, and may this month's special edition of the AARP magazine outsell that exploitative issue of Rolling Stone that glamorized the Boston Marathon bomber.
   Now excuse me while, thanks to Nyad's persistence and success, I go practice for my Outback-to-Canberra swim without a saltwater crocodile cage. Owch! Ooch! Shut your mouth, you future pair of high end cowboy boots.
