Candy,

it is unbelievable... untrue also which is why the publisher pulled it from thier inventory. Burdick and the prob. officer who he quotes regularly are wanna be's. Thier slighting of DA is completely untrue.

Unbelievable! Exactly! The story was definitely out there. It was very interesting and I would still recommend the audio version of Blue Thunder. You don't have to believe everything you hear to find something interesting. I plan to read Speed Kills next. I find these stories interesting but not concrete enough to judge a person or personís life. Are there any books you would recommend on the early days of Offshore?

I've read "Speed Kills" but I don't remember it painting Aronow in a particularly bad light, unless you're talking about the womanizing and selling businesses knowing he'd have to take them back and keep the buyers downstroke. Or selling to a known felon/drug dealer while he had active government contracts to build drug interdiction boats and that the sale would void those contracts so he could take the business back or start another boat company to get the contracts back for himself making the former business he'd sold worthless. Otherwise, I don't think it put Don in a bad light. Business is business, right?


Wasn't there a History channel piece done on this and aired recently. History Channel or Speed Channel or some "Channel" anyway.
