FILE - This Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2012 file aerial photo made from a helicopter shows storm damage from Superstorm Sandy over the Atlantic Coast in Mantoloking, N.J. Humans have an affinity for water. But in these recent jumbled days, the collapsed houses, flooded subway tunnels and washed-out roads left in Sandy's wake remind us once again: Our deep-seated human desire to be near the water _ to be attracted and comforted by it, to build alongside it and crave its attractions _ has an undeniable dark side.
