Ship from Costa Concordia company adrift after fire at sea
A cruise ship belonging to same company as Costa Concordia with more than 1,000 passengers and crew on board is adrift in the Indian Ocean after a fire broke out in its electrical room.
The 1,000 passengers and crew on the crippled Costa Allegra cruise ship face an uncomfortable three day journey without hot food, lights or air-conditioning after a plan to disembark them at a nearby luxury island resort was scrapped on Tuesday.
Tow, Tow, Tow your boat. Merrily on the Sea.
A single french fishing boat is attempting the tow, until tugs can arrive.
Costa Cruises official Giorgio Moretti says an armed nine-member Italian military team on anti-pirate duty is aboard the Costa Allegra.

Cars decidedly not a once-in-a-lifetime purchase
TOM: Think about what it would be like to have a 60-year-old car today. It would be something like a 1952 Chevy Bel Air.
FBI Turns Off Thousands of GPS Devices After Supreme Court Ruling
Mr. Weissmann, speaking at a University of San Francisco conference called “Big Brother in the 21st Century” on Friday, said that the court ruling prompted the FBI to turn off about 3,000 GPS tracking devices that were in use.
The FBI was tracking that many individuals without any warrants, not funny.
After the ruling, the FBI had a problem collecting the devices that it had turned off, Mr. Weissmann said. In some cases, he said, the FBI sought court orders to obtain permission to turn the devices on briefly – only in order to locate and retrieve them
Now, That’s Funny!
Romney is the anti-establishment candidate
By Ann Coulter
…We’re being asked to hand Obama another four years in the White House in order to “send a message.” To whom? And what message? That we’re morons? Message received!
Meanwhile, Romney cheerfully campaigns on, the biggest outsider and most conservative candidate we’ve run for president since Reagan, while being denounced by the establishment as “too establishment.”
Ann Coulter is an author and political commentator.
I don’t know, Ann. It may be true that Romney isn’t a insider, it may be that he’s standing way over there, all outside by himself. Frankly, the truest comment on all the candidates may be that none of them, that NO-ONE is really qualified to be President (no one more so than BHO) But someone has to be.
I’ll say it again, I will vote for anyone whose name appears on the ballot in November if that person is running against Barack Hussein Obama. Because Barry has already proved that he is the most incompetent man to ever hold the office of POTUS.
Lindzen totally pwns the alarmists
Is catastrophic global warming, like Millennium Bug, a mistake?
Professor Richard Lindzen is one of the world’s greatest atmospheric physicists: perhaps the greatest. What he doesn’t know about the science behind climate change probably isn’t worth knowing. But even if you weren’t aware of all this, even if you’d come to the talk he gave in the House of Commons this week without prejudice or expectation, I can pretty much guarantee you would have been blown away by his elegant dismissal of Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming theory.

Cap and Trade taxes and use fees are already being collected in Europe, once these governments get used to receiving and spending that money it will become almost impossible to get rid of them. Unless we get rid of the politicians that have been corrupted.
