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.
