Pirates Attack Vessel in Gloucester Harbor, Massachusetts.

August 5th, 2011

As reported this evening on WHDH Television Channel 7 in Boston (among other places), pirates apparently attacked a vessel in Gloucester Harbor of Massachusetts. The violated vessel (a 40 foot sailboat) was moored in the harbor yesterday when two men boarded the boat. The men had come alongside the moored sailboat from a power boat which was proudly flying the colors of the Jolly Roger. News reports claim that the men/would-be pirates intended to rob the vessel – which they believed to be unattended. However, the would-be pirates were sent scurrying when confronted by the owner/occupant of the sailboat who was onboard at the time of the incident. The would-be pirates claimed to be armed with a gun and then threatened and warned the occupant of the sailboat against reporting the matter to authorities.

Responding police were said to have sailed a pursuit boat from a launch on Pirates Lane in Gloucester. Police/U.S. Coast Guard, according to other reports, were then reported to have cornered the would-be pirates in what is known as Pirates Cove in the Gloucester area.

The would-be pirate boat which transported the would-be pirates was quickly identified as it was said to have been still flying the Jolly Roger colors when the would-be pirates were located, cornered, and apprehended. True to such a heritage and legend, I suppose pirates were never really known for their intellectual abilities.

Two and a Half Men: Charlie’s Funeral

August 5th, 2011

Well, I guess the show really does go on – regardless. It’s being reported that a new and upcoming episode and season of “Two and a Half Men” is set to be aired on CBS Television. Of course, the show is slated to have Ashton Kutcher somewhat replacing “Charlie Harper,” which is/was Charlie Sheen’s character

Regarding the reported story and all it entails, I say:

Dig it! But not sure if I'm diggin' it all, yet. Well..., at least I ain’t gotta dig the hole in the ground for Charlie Harper, anyway. :)

He pretty much dug his own grave for himself, apparently.
