Pirates and Pasta in the New York Times, Really

Postby Arrup on Fri Feb 13, 2009 8:43 pm

New York Times, February 13, 2009. Page A13, Column 1. "Arms Ship, Free of Pirates, Limps Into Port" By Jeffrey Gettleman.

I have hard copy, but you can probably find it at nyt.com.

Leaving aside for the moment whether machine gun toting folks who run around in little boats are real "Pirates", the implications of this article are fascinating. The ship's "original" crew, upon release, described the conditions aboard an arms ship as it was being held for ransom.

Quoting from the article:
Water was scarce, and so was the spaghetti the pirates cooked.
Coincidence or revelation? :fsm_float:
High IQ (self-tested)

Many Academic Degrees: AB (from the greek for At Bat-or batty), JD (Just Dumb), MBA (Must Be an Ass - awarded by a well known Eastern Business School), and Psy. Op. (Psychic Operator - really)

Have three parrots, and constantly see ships worth stealing. Aarrr (no "g").
