Old Pirates, New Pirates

There was an interesting article in the Wall Street Journal regarding the recent increase in news coverage of the Somali pirates. The author asked Cap'n Slappy, one of the founders of International Talk Like a Pirate Day, whether he thought that the modern pirates would detract from the popularity of pirate festivals, reenactments, and general fun with rum.

Good article, and well worth the read. Here's the link.

More later.
