What Sucks…Pirates

Did I hit my head or did I wake up today to read that our Navy is battling Pirates this morning on the open seas and that they- the pirates- have captured the captain of a ship?

Is, like, the Navy, you know, trained for something like this? I mean…I hope they are looking out for cannon balls or, ah, I don’t know monitoring what flags are being raised? They know that it’s hard to sneak up on them because pirates often see things from a “crow’s nest”, right?

Is the captive, you know safe from, I don’t know- walking the plank? I understand the pirates that this point may be on a small life raft that has run out of gas, if so I am greatly relieved because that means their captive will likely not be “keelhauled”.

Folks, I guess what I’m saying is that we can do better than this. We can do better than live in a world with friggin’ pirates. Can’t we? No? Bummer.
