Before starting this blog, I promised a friend I would update it minimally once every two weeks… In fact, I hope to do better than that. I know it’s already been more than two weeks since my last update. I’m working one a more substantive piece at the moment about some of what we’re up to here on the Atlantic coast. So in the meantime… here’s one of those stories that despite a serious undertone brings a smile to my face.
One of the lead stories in today’s press is of the latest “narco-submarine.” Apparently it is of the homemade variety, had four crew-members aboard and room for up to four tons of cocaine. It was caught off the Pacific coast, headed north.
This is at least the third narco-submarine found in Colombia since 2005. As a friend said, “Imagine how many of these things must be out there if they’ve found three of them!”
