Whale Wars, the exceptional television program about a group of environmentalist that go to sea to "defend the whales" is back on. The first show of the new season premiered last night and it was a good one. The sailors on the "Steve Irwin" actually looked pretty competent, but the new vessel, the "Bob Barker" was having engine troubles (to say the least). The "Ady Gil" is a cool addition to the fleet, but it has been destroyed by the whalers. We will see it in an upcoming episode. Yea!
The Sea Shepherds group is considered terrorists and pirates by the Japanese and they perhaps are correct. If so they are good pirates and terrorists, much like the Mujaheddin was during the Soviet occupation of the Afghan "nation."
As a friend of mine says, "Fuck a Japanese, they don't need to eat a whale."
