There Be Pirates

International Chamber of Commerce Comercial Crimes Service posts its "Weekly Piracy Report".

Best of the bad: Gulf of Aden-
Pirates in two small boats opened fire on a yacht underway. A helicopter operating from a nearby warship responded yacht's call for help. Pirates had fired four shots but there were no crew injuries or damage.
Bold pirates, indeed, who ply their trade in waters where warships operate. Perhaps, to borrow a phrase from my naval aviator friends, "There are old pirates and bold pirates, but there are no old, bold pirates."
