We appear to be keen to propitiate whatever Gods we still respect (but fear to have slighted, nonetheless) by keeping harmless, also called innocent, virgins, that is to say young women, unencumbered with child, at sea for the last 10 months. The Australian one got away with it, intacta, but the Yankee sister of a youth who also succeeded is now in peril.
So we get what we wanted: peril at sea. Angd the Gulf is bubbling goodo too.
What is the connection?
