My son is going to Gulf this weekend. I'll be sure to give him my annual Chief Brody warnings before he leaves.

Time for Ted Kennedy to rouse out of his Palm Beach mansion and go for a swim.

They're hoping there will be even fewer today.

Well, only 1 way to know for sure... send in the working man's chum.

Lifeguards say the shark invasion happens a few times a year, often in March.

Oh no, they usually pass through in March?! You know what that means: one more example of global warming! /s

Bulls and Lemons are both known to attack people. Bull sharks are particularly dangerous - maybe the worst of all maneaters. White Sharks tend to strike at the center of bodymass then spit out the victim to hover nearby and wait for him to bleed to death (allowing the victim time to get out of the water), but Bull Sharks strike arms and legs. They will rip a limb off (or strip the muscle if they can't bite through the bone)and then come straight back in to nail another.

Survive a White Shark attack and you will usually have a very interesting crescent-shaped scar on your torso to show off. Survive a Bull Shark attack and you will have a hook at the end of the stub of your arm or a prosthetic leg to show off.

Bulls also like shallow water and can often be seen swimming right beside waders and swimmers. Bulls are very aggressive and can get up to twelve feet long.

Just thought I'd point out that Palm Beach isn't on the Gulf. Look north of Boca Raton, north of Ft. Lauderdale.

"The sharks pass by every spring while migrating to their summer homes up North."

Getting ready to open up the house in Nantucket or the Vineyard. Pitchers and catchers report in a couple of weeks - spring can't be too far behind.

I guess changing the name to Shark Beach would be out of the question.
