It Must Be Cruise Ship Disaster Season
Not since the days of GILLIGAN'S ISLAND, have so many cruises turned out badly. And not for any time in recent memory have so many cruise ship disasters taken place in so short a number of days.
Earlier this week the fatal South American tour bus accident hit the headlines. Then about a day later, there was the fire abroard the ship that destroyed 150 cabins, killed one, and injured 11 more.
Then yesterday a sternwheeled style cruise ship on a seven day tour up the West Coast hit a sandbar in waters off Washington state.
Why bad events somehow happen in three's is a real mystery.
