I am the one who started originally started the thread. I think you came up with a Perfect name for it! We were all going into detective mode. Perhaps we should get a group together for a mystery cruise?!? (I'll use any excuse or idea to take a cruise)...Hey Dave, I think I'm going to get some detective sunglasses and practice my "serious thought face" as you and the others reveal the facts of the cases we investigate.
I know some may think I am being insensitive, but any dignity for this event went away when Nancy Grace got involved as well as the other cable news networks. It was moved to Lido since the NCL involvement is inconsequential. It could have been any line and thus I felt it unfair to keep it in the NCL section.
CSI could also stand for "Cruise Ship Investigation".
We pick on the news media, me included , and rightly so. They've deteriorated to what sells like the tabliods. But we're all doing the same thing, speculating on what might be as Dave says. Granted we're not charged with the responsibility of informing the public with news, we're doing what all of America is doing at the water cooler at work. I'm pleased with the move to Lido, its not really about cruising or the cruiseline but a tragic incident.
