Coincidence? I Think Not.

Captain Richard Phillips Is Safe...
and three Skinnies are dead. The fourth is in the custody of the United States Navy.

I note that the rescue took place just a few hours after The Lifeguard indicated his intent to move to France if immediate action was not taken.

I am, however, a bit concerned that the chattering skulls are talking about the Skinny doing a life term in a U.S. prison and not a long walk on a short plank. A life-term in an American prison is probably a whole lot better gig than a life-term in a Somali village. Shit, he'll get three squares a day, a bed in a small (but climate-controlled) cell, 105 channels, and access to the best lawyers that the ACLU can buy.

To paraphrase Crocodile Dundee, "That's not life. That's the life."
