It’s not every day that you can say you went swimming with the sharks. That’s not a metaphor, either, at least not in this case.

As scary as these creatures can be, it is sad to see humanity treat them with such cruelty. Shark attacks are an infrequent occurrence. You are more likely to win the lottery or get struck by lightning than you are to be attacked by a shark. Yet through popular culture, we have become accustomed to this irrational fear. At least 60 Minutes is doing its part to protect sharks from unfair persecution.
