Maybe he had a heart attack. It was stupid though to go out in the water alone.

That's possible, heart attack, stroke, etc..

I know if I were going to go somewhere, I'd tell someone where I was going, and if not back by a certain time, to check on me.

Yep me too. I got myself in a bad situation back in my early 20's and ever since then, I tell someone where I'm going and about what time I'll be back.

I'm hoping he just died though and wasn't murdered.

On another blog, they said maybe it was a park ranger who shot the man and dumped his body, referring to the camper who was shot in the back a few years ago. truly morbid people out there.

Nothing against guns for responsible people but they need to do a background check on people before allowing them to carry guns.
That's a sad way to die - being shot in the back.

I can't even get a conversation going here of any substance, what is this? a clique?
where has everyone gone? what does, not a member mean?
I get more satisfaction out of twittering CNN
Well you have to understand that people are busy and can't spend every moment here chatting. Emailing wouldn't work for me because I am usually to busy to check my email. I usually check it once every 2 weeks or so. If you start a conversation the posters will follow

I give you a run down on what happened. Sorry it's a little long.

The food pantry opens it's doors at 9AM. At 8:30 their were already 24 people in line. At that time number tickets were going to be distributed. When the people that were giving out the tickets got to the exterior doors to distribute the tickets to the people they were all gathering up around the door blocking access from everyone. They had to yell for the people to make way so they could get through and distribute the tickets. When handing out the tickets to the people others snatched tickets from the distributors' hands so they could get a better spot. By the time they were at the end of the line their was around 80 people in line. Okay so the doors opened at 9AM sharp. The people were lead into the holding area where they could get extras( like bread and sweets). Their were 11 tables completely filled with goods. At 9:15 those tables were empty.After getting sweets and bread the people are allowed to move to the hallway to get fruits,veggies,dairy products, and school supplies while they wait for their number to be called. One guy knocked the milk crates over to get milk( luckily only 3 jugs broke)( after that we had to guard the milk crates so people would keep their pawing hands away) Then not long after that someone hit this small child with a cart(Not sure if it was boy or girl..heard their cries from the other room because I was helping review the applications from new applicants) all I know is they were bruised.

The Clothing Shop didn't go over much better. Several racks were knocked down.

It was absolute madness. I hope it just happened to be a bad day and not how people usually act at Church food pantries. Hopefully it will be better next Saturday

It sounds like when I worked in a retail store and there were special sales.
People were being idiotic, pushing, yelling, cussing. It was ridiculous. Too bad people have to behave in such a tasteless manner. Really not a good place to take kids either.
Hope next weekend goes better for you but I wouldn't count on it.
I know people all too well.

I'm starting to remember some of the stories my mother would tell me when she work at Goodwill when I was a small child. I don't know if they have Goodwill's down their in NM but they are basicly stores where people drop off/donate stuff they don't want and the store sells the stuff for cheap prices( almost like a pawn shop). Next Saturday I'm going to see if I can volunteer in their delivery service.
