    Love Boat Goes To The Breakers For those of us of a certain age, we remember the cheesy, comedic voyages of the Love Boat as a staple of late 1970s TV. Captain Stubing, Gopher, Doc, Isaac and the blond chick would sleep their way through the passengers, smile and serve drinks. All this happened in a tidy hour format complete with laugh track. Well, the ship that was at the core of the show, the Pacific Princess, has finally sailed its last and is at the wreckers in Turkey. Unfortunately, the Turkish ship breakers are not known for saving furnishings...

    Two men died and eight others were hospitalized after a toxic gas build-up on board the luxury ship featured in hit TV show The Love Boat. The decommissioned vessel, named Pacific Princess, was heading in to dock on the coast of Turkey for the last time on Saturday following news it is to be scrapped. It began taking on water as it neared the shore, and several crew members entered the engine room to pump it out. Reports suggest a deadly build-up of exhaust fumes poisoned ten workers, killing two of them. The other men were treated in hospital for...

    The MS Pacific, a cruise ship made famous by the popular U.S. 1970s television show "The Love Boat," has sailed its final voyage to a ship-breaking yard on Turkey's Aegean Sea coast, a shipping group said on Wednesday. Called the Pacific Princess when it was on the long-running comedy, the iconic 13,500-tonne, 171-m-long (561-foot-long) vessel will be stripped for its metal and parts, said Ersin Ceviker of the Ship Recyclers' Association of Turkey. Aaron Spelling's "The Love Boat," starring Gavin MacLeod as the ship's captain, ran on the U.S. television network ABC from 1977 to 1986. The show was set...

    What's plain is that the Gaza flotilla's nominal purpose, delivering "humanitarian" supplies to Gaza, was secondary to the aim of provoking a confrontation. The Gaza flotilla turned down an Israeli offer to unload the six boats and deliver the goods to Gaza by truck; it ignored repeated warnings that it would not be allowed to reach Gaza. Its spokesmen said they would insist on "breaking Israel's siege," as one of them put it. View the local newscoverage of BlueStar working to support Israel.

    It was the immigrant high-school's first prom since opening of 10 in the city supported by the Int Network for Public Schools, a nonprofit whose motto is "Opening doors to the American dream." 300 immigrants to NYC who speak little or no English were enrolled. When the yacht "Fantasy" set sail for a 3-hour cruise, the liquor started to flow--As it neared midnight, several faculty members, loosened by booze, boogied with the kids.....a chemistry teacher wrapped herself around a boy and locked lips. Alcohol is forbidden at school events attended by minors.....officials could not say when the DOE learned...

    I'm sure that 9/11 conjures up the most nightmares for Mayor Giuliani, er, ah, that is, until Friday night's ferry ride in the Straits of Mackinac. Was it chance, or divine intervention, that the stars would line up for the following to happen?Mackinac Island, home to the Michigan Republican Leadership Conference the last few days, was overwhelmed by a 'sea of Ron Paul supporters', according to the Detroit Free Press. Well...all good things must come to an end (at least for the night). So that 'sea' of supporters needed to get back to the mainland (Mackinaw City), and I happened...

    NUDITY, streaking and sex in public were common practice on the cruise ship on which Brisbane woman Dianne Brimble died, the ship's former night manager has told an inquest. A naked Mrs Brimble was found dead on the floor of a cabin of the Pacific Sky less than 24 hours after she boarded the cruise liner on September 23, 2002. She died of an overdose of the date rape drug gamma-hydroxybutyrate, or fantasy, while on a holiday with family and friends. Eight Adelaide men are considered persons of interest in the case – Mark Wilhelm, Matthew Slade, Dragan Losic, Petar...

    Attorneys for former Minnesota Viking Daunte Culpepper and current Viking Moe Williams argued in a court hearing today that the sexual activity alleged against the players on a cruise boat last fall did not reach the level of criminal conduct. The attorneys focused on the specific actions of the players and spent the first half-hour of the hearing in Hennepin County District Court trying to determine a legal definition for a lap dance.
