Normal Service Resumes...

Yes, I survived last night, but barely. Anyway, I've been tracking, over the past week, a story of such horrorifying import that I can barely bring myself to blog about it even now, when it seems to have had a happy resolution. I call this tale "Vikings Stole My Shrimp!!!" Here is its denouement:

Ports to remain open to Danish boats

ST. JOHN'S — Canadian ports will remain open to Danish vessels after Denmark agreed to stop fishing shrimp over its allowable quota.

Canada had threatened to banish fishing vessels from Denmark, the Faroe Islands and Greenland because Denmark was taking more than the 144 tonnes of shrimp it was given under North Atlantic Fisheries Organization (NAFO) agreement.

Yeah, and you know what happens to people who over-fish in the Grand Banks, dontcha? Alright, who's next? Who wants some?
