Really?
You guys would be all over it.
Might be on the upper decks, but I'm on Dialup.
Not a thread? Never came to light till today?
Umm, they were on cell phones to family the next day when a ship went by.
5 days of total silence with the "News".??
4000 humans- CNN called it a "Floating Petri Dish".
Sending 4K peeps all around the world, and the immigrant crew? They said they were the True Hero's"
Opinions?
(I cant go to the upper decks on dial up-half hour. :()

Interesting how polite societies become Lord of the Flies redux eh?It usually coincides with the point at which the cruise line cuts off the liquor. . .

Since this has popped up here. can anyone tell me why the people weren't removed? It seems to me the ship is one thing and the passengers another. Why weren't the passengers ferried to land?
