BB&G Sending Out Love… and Advice

Capt. Richard Phillips of the Maersk Alabama is being held by pirates on a lifeboat off Somalia.

Hopefully since the US Navy and the FBI are handling this situation this ship’s captain can return home safely.

I do know this for sure… companies or organizations that decide to send their crews and ships in these waters without armed security are flat out dumb.  Sure it cost to secure the ships, but the way the ransom’s are being doled out it cost more NOT to safely protect the crew and cargo.
