Default Darwin Award, here we come!!!

Exerpt from Fox News on Katrina:

Quote:
The hurricane was hindering the Coast Guard's search for a family of five who went out boating Thursday morning from Marathon and never reached their destination of Cape Coral on Florida's southwest coast. Edward and Tina Larson and their three children, ages 17, 14 and 4, were aboard a 24-foot pleasure craft.
What kind of dumbass heads out to sea - with kids - when a hurricane is due in the area within 24 hours?!?!!?!? Unbelievable!!!

I heard they made it about half way home and were found off of Everglades City. I hope they were all ok, but dang, how stupid can you be?
