Default Cruisers Are Unknowingly At Risk

The Congress is considering a bill to reduce the death and mayhem on cruise ships.

http://www.usatoday.com/travel/cruis...=64039309.blog

Among the proposed items: 54"-high guard rails on balconies.......

You know, if you're going to go that far, why not just enclose the whole balcony!

Anyway, the article makes for interesting reading. Wonder how the cruise industry's going to like this.......?

I would think that congress has more important things to work on.

Ya think? Leave it to Kerry to stick his nose into something else that isn't warranted instead of the REAL problems of the American public.
