    to us on the way out.

    Thank you, Senator.

    Aside from your votes on climate, which I understand if I don't appreciate, you have been an ally and a statesman.

    I tried to go online to find a similar bear head...but when I searched “Big Bear Head” it gave me a San Diego craigslist ad entitled “Big Bear needs some quick head now” and then I just decided to never go on the internet again.--Jenny Lawson

      for going after the cruise ship industry, especially the Carnival, "Fun Ships".

      For too long they have been running their ships on the ragged edge of repair and staffing, and when shit (literally) starts flooding a ship interior and the stressed motors OD, then they expect the US Coast Guard (and US taxpayers) to bail/tug/pull them and ill pax out of trouble.  

      Yet Carnival (HAL, Cunard, Princess, Seaborn, Costa) register their ships under foreign flags of convenience to avoid stricter regulations and taxes.

      If bad food is served to people, US inspectors can cite the lines/ships for a bad report, but it carries NO FINE, NO CRIMINALITY.  See the inspections this past summer in Alaska.  

      We appreciate the work Senator Rockefeller is doing on these issues.

        Much like the replacement of Lautenberg with Cory Booker, we're heading into an era of all New Dems, all the time.
