    Oh David...only someone of your obvious superior intellect could ever get the gist of what you're saying...as a matter of fact I'd say that you are about the only one who can understand exactly what you say in any of your inane posts. But please don't stop...you are always good for a laugh...

      Get back to 'work'. It's bad enough we have to pay your salary, you could at least pretend to do something.

    I'll add a little tidbot that no one has yet mentioned. It is a very disturbing revelation that if terrorists wanted to destroy a major offshre oil producing facility, located where both the natural conditions and being in a jurisdiction where completely incompetent, unqualified and unprepared nimrods wouldn'tr know waht to do for months, this spectacvcle had provided quite a playbook. It is absolutely frightening and compleltely plausible that anyone could get a boat, load it with thier preferred explosives, and simply drive it into a platform without anyone noticing or doing a dam thing. Our only hope is that the Americans are able to risk an "international sovereignty incident" and step in very quickly. Could someone...anyone!? ....in the entiire Newfoundland meida "gong show" please start asking some pointed questions of someoen involved in this fiasco --- other than Shoeybi?!? This is rather more important than the incessant, mindless local politics.....

      Gee David, if only we had you in control instead of those...incompetent, unqualified, unprepared nimrods, I'm sure we could all reast a little easier...LMAO

      David, the word "nimrod" refers to a mighty hunter. Some people think it is an insulting term referring to a stupid person, because Bugs Bunny called Elmer Fudd a nimrod. Bugs was not insulting Elmer by using that term - he was merely using a fanciful synonym for "hunter."

      Aunt Lizzie: Congratulations on your trivia 'knowledge'....but I'm pretty sure there were very few otherwise inttelligent people who mistook the gist of my post. If there are, then we really are in much worse shape than even I thought. BTW, other than symantics or grammar, did anything else in there tweak your interest or catch your attention?

      @David: Thanks - I am a proud trivia buff and Bugs Bunny fan. In answer to your question... No, nothing else in your post caught my interest. I don't buy any of the conclusions you draw from this incident. I do however agree with the editorial above, which is unusual.

    We should count our lucky stars. If our zealous government had not been tied up with the Muskrat boondoggle they would have expropriated the vessel by now and retested our polluter pay legislation with all its teeth. With a bit of luck we will not have to pick up the tab for this one.

    I find it unbelievable that she was allowed to leave under the circumstances she did! Anyone who was watching or in charge should have seen the potential for BIG problems with that little tug! Now we have a derelict cruise ship adrift on the ocean posing great danger to other ships, mariners, and the environment! Not to mention the brush with the OIL RIGS and the sailors who had to tow her away from those rigs! Who signed off on allowing her to be moved? Could this have been avoided somehow?

    Everthing is working out exactly as Mr. Shoeybi wanted it to. Get it out to sea, cut the line...and presto...someone else's problem. I hope the government takes this guy for everything he's worth...
