Get ready for more legislation

3,300 people are currently stranded at sea off the coast of Mexico on the Carnival Splendour.  The ship suffered a fire in the engine room and their crew and engineers have not been able to restore power since generators were damaged in the fire.  The results is that their passengers are stranded on board without air conditioning, hot meals or working toilets.  They’re basically on a floating desert island at this point, and this is day 2.  While the company is making arrangements to tow the ship in to port, it’s got to be a nightmare for those cruisers.  Can you imagine 48 hours without a working bathroom?  I certainly can’t.  I think we’re going to hear more about this one, and I’m guessing it will be at a hearing in Congress asking for a tarmac law to accommodate cruisers.
