Can't argue, Bobo. I've seeb a lot of coincidences while making this series. But this one takes the cake. It's nothing to have 3 air disasters on the same date: I could put that many in nearly every game--more for some games. But ferries? Not so much.

Well, at the risk of stating the bleedin' obvious, 26 September was a really bad day to be travelling on a ferry - extraordinary coincidence!
