    lol I love the "emotional" reunion of families with those on board. They were going on a cruise you weren't supposed to see them for 10-14 days anyway...

    Not true....the cruises to Cozumel like this one are only about a 3 or 4 day voyage.

    even still they were a way for a few days longer. This whole thing got way too much TV coverage.

    I'll be honest...I'd rather watch this than the usual political bickering on the news. It was a refreshing change of pace even though those people went through hell. Glad they were safe.

    I can't argue against this.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    'Cruise From Hell' Was A Mix Of 'Survivor' And 'Lord Of The Flies' : The Two-Way : NPR

    update : at least one of the buses chartered to take passengers to New Orleans has broken down.

    Wah. Had to sleep outside? Had to crap in bags? It stunk? Sounds like a deployment to me.

    Took less than two days for the first lawsuit to be filed.

    Lawsuit filed over 'floating hell' cruise - CNN.com

    4,200 people, and no one thought to just pee over the rail?

    Sorry, but after reading many articles on this, I still just don't get the "horrific" point of it. Folks sitting on the deck all day instead of....uh...sitting on the deck all day. Sure it had to have been inconvenient, and not-so-luxurious, but c'mon people. The Mayflower folks would laugh at their "hardships." The millions of fish below the ship laugh at their little red bags. I heard some [donkey orifice] compare this "disaster" to Katrina. Seriously? I'm pretty sure that these people'll be able to get home to their unlimited creature comforts, and all their belongings will still be intact.
