It's Good To Have Some Prison-Break Experience

A 9 year old boy has swam (swum?) the 1.4 miles between Alcatraz and the San Francisco shore. I saw him on The Today Show this morning and he came across as a very typical (and I mean very typical) nine year old boy. I'm sure his father is very proud that he wasn't attacked by sharks, didn't drown, and didn't freeze. Ah, parenthood.
