Professor Munger has a news round-up of the South Polar excursion that encountered, shall we say, something other than summer sailing on the open ocean.
Chinese ice-breaker. Gets stuck. Australian ice-breaker. Gets stuck. Call out the Coast Guard. (Be nice to have a few Iowa class battleships in commission for other sorts of rescue missions.) First, though, the winds change, and the stuck excursion ship and the stuck ice-breaker get un-stuck. There is, however, other work for the Coast Guard in the antipodes.
