Arr, Good News, Matey

According to an article in the New York Times, piracy off the coast of Somalia has dropped by nearly one-third in the first quarter of 2010. The London-based International Maritime Bureau attributes this decline to the international task force operating in the Gulf of Aden.

Of course, one could also attribute this decline to the amazing ability of Somali pirates to eliminate themselves from the gene pool, after directly attacking US Navy warships (with predictable results). Seriously, start drafting the Darwin Awards...
