From Yemen to Everett

The LNG tanker from Yemen has arrived, and as the Coast Guard predicted, its entrance into Boston harbor went smoothly.

Of course it went smoothly.

But what happens when that one time, that one fatal instance occurs when it doesn’t go smoothly, when there is a disaster at the hands of terrorists or a natural disaster?

What then will the Coast Guard say?

The Coast Guard can’t be like television weather forecasters – right many of the times and wrong just a few.

The fuel should be unloaded off-shore and piped in.
