When I broadcast this Midnight Special I was totally unaware of the harrowing cruise ship experience occurring in the North Sea. I would not have played this sequence if I had know people were in distress. It's fine to laugh in retrospect if everyone safely survives, but not when people are endangered. I regret the unfortunate coincidence of the cruise ship sequence in the program and an actual simultaneous event. Rich
