Boat people are weird. I know that from personal experience. During the most affluent years of his life, my father put much of the family’s disposable income into a “hole in the water” (a 36-foot sailboat).

And I did that same pose Simon LeBon did in the Duran Duran video “Rio” on the prow of the sailboat twelve years before he did. But I did not look nearly as good doing it. But I digress.
