-- dolphins saved by locals

"One of the dolphins was really weak, and one of the young guys who had a survival suit on got into the water with it and stayed with it, and the dolphin just kind of wrapped his fins around him. . . . It was amazing."

What a great story. I'm so glad they did something and didn't just shrug their shoulders and leave it in someone else's hands.

We were at Sea World recently and spent several hours at the dolphin nursery, where several of them were clowning around, flirting, and, I swear, laughing. It's amazing how intelligent, friendly, and interactive they are.
