I just saw this as a teaser on msn.com. You would think it was a major disaster until you read the article. I'm glad no one was hurt and no disruption to the itenery. These cruisers will have a great story to tell. but I do wish the media would stop being so sensational.


It happens on a local level too. I subdivded a 5 acre lot to sell my Dad's house to a lady who wanted to buy it and plant a vegtable garden. After the planning board approved it the local paper had a headline "Wellington Road Subdivision Approved!" You would have thought it was a 354 unit condo I was building. :-) I got 1 and a half columns on it. Big News. Town is about 2500 people
