My son is back from his senior cruise to the Far East. He told me a few stories. When they stopped at Midway Island, there is no bar. The reason he says is that after a visit from the Golden Bear a few years ago, the bar was closed for good.

His ship was told that it cannot come back to Okinawa. The cadets were not very good.

Lastly, he tells me that the Captain of the Exxon Valdez is now teaching somewhere in Maine. Is that true?

Yeah, you take a bunch of kids who are leaving home for the first time, stick 'em on a ship in the middle of the ocean for a few weeks and then when they get to a strange place with no drinking age they tend to go a little wild. So the T/S Golden Bear is not welcome back.

I'm sure your son told you that he was an observer and not a participant? :P

And Capt. Hazelwood teaches at the State University of New York.
