Truthout Tuesday

1a - Copy

For families whose loved ones suffer an accident on ships sailing the high seas, it isn’t an option to sue cruise lines for physical or emotional losses, even when the companies are at fault.

The “Hammers’ Law,” sponsored by Sen. Deb Fischer (R-Neb.), aims to challenge the status quo. Named after two victims who lost their lives to a fire on a Peruvian river cruise in 2016, the bill would expand the compensation families can pursue from cruise lines in cases of on-board accidents.

The bill gained support from the American Association for Justice, a group representing trial attorneys across the country. Lobbyists backed by powerful cruise lines, however, have blocked similar efforts for years.

    No cruises for me, either. Counter to my values.

    DEN — Happy trails as you hit the road in the Buick! Hope your return westward is enjoyable — and mishap free!

    Heard a crow. Saw a magpie. Then a little dun butterfly before a beefly zipped past. Fast 14 minutes to the north door of the Hillside Cafe.
