This story, of the presumed death of the daughter of former Dallas Stars general manager Bob Gainey, has been in the news for about four days.
But there is just something about it. If she had died in a car crash or of cancer, it probably wouldn't even have made the news. But being swept overboard off of a boat into the cold Atlantic Ocean gets our attention. Maybe it's because we all wonder about the horror of what that experience would be like.
