Thank You For Not Talking Like A Pirate

Nautie Friends, did you guys know that September 19th was International Talk Like A Pirate Day? You know that I'm pulling my soap box out of the closet while typing so that I can begin discussing the seriousness of piracy, right?

Thank goodness my favorite source of maritime news bits The Old Salt Blog wrote about The Human Cost of Piracy so I didn't have to.

My poor father had the misfortune of emailing me a little somethin' somethin' he wrote about allowing pirates to attend church.  I tell you one thing, I wouldn't let a pirate anywhere near my cute little old Japanese ladies.

(For the record, what you wrote was great Dad....minus the whole Pirate thing...)

*Also, if you're in the mood to read old rants, raves or musings you can find them here, here and here.*
