Pirate Wives

The Somali pirates have been in the news again, so of course, Brad and Lily have to talk about them. Their work can wait.

There's been a lot of debate about whether ransoms should be paid to these Somali pirates. I suppose your opinion on this issue is dependent on your individual perspective. If you are a pirate, I'd assume you would be pro-ransom. (If any actual pirates are reading this, please leave a comment below. We'd love to hear from you.) If you are a hostage, my guess is that you'd be pro-ransom too. I sure would be. On the other hand, insurance company executives would probably be unanimously anti-ransom. That would be my guess, but I could be wrong.

I am an insurance executive pirate, and I am honestly torn.

I'm not a pirate, but my brother looks like one - not the peg leg, but the scraggly beard. He thinks being a pirate is too much like hard work. He'd be for someone paying him not to be a pirate.
