Somali Pirate Update

Coffee break is almost over, but I figured I'd send a quick news tidbit out into the ether. Looks like the Somali pirate brigade has taken another hit. Of course, this is a small victory on the part of the multi-national force, as the independent - or loosely organized - pirate forces continue to harrass, hijack, and hold ships for ransom. But I do hope that this action on the part of the US Navy is a sign of things to come.
