Presidential Election

Apparently there is a maritime flavor to the track record of one of the challengers that may influence those who go to sea in small boats.
Peter Casey was once embroiled in a major controversy when as elected Mayor of a small seaside American town he over-ruled the closing of the local beach on a holiday weekend after an apparent shark attack.
It all ended very badly indeed.
Here he is see dictating to the local police chief.
Those of us who love democracy must be ever vigilant!

What's a Knacker???? asks the Amityville Police Chief.

Inspector Knacker, also referred to as "Knacker of the Yard", is a senior (and possibly unreliable) police officer. The name alludes both to knackers' yards, where old horses are sent to be put down and their carcases disposed of, and to "Slipper of the Yard", the nickname given to real-life police Chief Superintendent Jack Slipper of Scotland Yard. The name may be used in reference either to individual policemen ("Another top Knacker resigns"), or to the police in general ("These allegations are being looked into by Inspector Knacker"). If the story refers to police activities in Scotland, Wales, or Ireland, the name may be changed to "McKnacker", "Dai Knacker", or "O'Knacker", respectively.

And while you're it Chief, move that Chris Christie as well.

First, you order a government shutdown that closes all state parks and beaches on the eve of the 4 July holiday weekend.

Then you take a police helicopter to the coast and spend a good chunk of Sunday soaking up the rays with your family on a pristine stretch of sand that – thanks to your order – you have entirely to yourselves.

However, the New Jersey governor, Chris Christie, was unrepentant. Asked about reports that his his family was staying at the state residence at Island Beach state park while it was closed to the public, Christie first denied he had benefited. “I didn’t get any sun,” he said.
