John Boston: The things you find in someone's stomach

Steve Lunetta: Modern piracy: No Jack Sparrows or Jolly Rogers

"First, your return to shore was not part of our negotiations nor our agreement, so I must do nothing. And secondly, you must be a pirate for the Pirate's Code to apply, and you're not.
