I have an opinion, don't you?

When is a Boat not a Boat?


According to the article in the Wall Street Journal of January 16, 2013, a Boat is NOT a Boat when it is a casino!

The article says that a “vessel”  is “…something capable of being used for water transport.”  And the written decision has references to it from Pinnochio and Mother Goose’s Three Men in A Tub!!!

I, for one, am very glad to see that our Federal Supreme Court has taken the time out of their very busy schedule to make an opinion about this issue.  How else would the casino industry be able to float more of their locations without being subject to our maritime laws!

Please, a show of hands (a reply to this blog) as to how many others of you think this is a ridiculous use of limited resources – our Supreme Court and the many other issues they could be addressing!??

Thanx for reading, bgbg
