Ten years ago today, depending on your perspective:
Either the Child foretold of by the ancient prophecies -- the heir to the throne of Moses, King David and Jesus, who had spent days at sea being cared for by a reverent school of dolphin personally dispatched by God -- arrived on our shores to bring hope to an enslaved people.

I swear, I'm still suffering from PTSD over the Elian Gonzalez saga.
When I hear this kid's name it's like a Vietnam vet hearing choppers.
