How many does this make? It brings back a sad family memory of my BROTHER IN LAW
and his friend drowning in June 1980. They were fishing and a line wrapped around a
pier that got stuck, Charlie was a newly discharged marine, and his friend went in after him because
he didn’t come up after untying the line. The newspapers at the time said there is a tremendous
undertow fifty feet out and at high tide it causes a rip current. How many does this make since June 1980?
I feel a great sadness, as our part of the Hudson has claimed many……………M.
