Safe Cruise

Project Safe Cruise Press Release: See www.projectsafecruise.blogspot.com & details below. Leave a message if you have experienced incidents involving poor security & safety practices of cruise lines. Hearings are scheduled; we will provide them to Congress. We must act to insure passenger safety. The current lack of safety & security is not acceptable especially after 9/11. On 5/12/05, we were on the Carnival Destiny near Aruba when an elderly couple disappeared without a trace.

Government could save $50 billion per year by having two shifts of white collar employees work each day. Office space costs $50,000/year for each employee yet we only use space 30% of time. We can no longer afford to have banker's hours for all. With over 2 million federal employees this cost-free paradigm change could avoid lay offs/furloughs and reduce pollution.

Congressman Shays Plans Cruise Disappearance Hearings

As reported on MSNBC, http://msnbc.msn.com/id/10235571/

Rep. Christopher Shays, R-Conn., along with Rep. Mark Souder, R-Ind., will convene a hearing on the cruise industry on Tuesday in Washington, D.C. Shays is chairman of the Subcommittee on National Security, Emerging Threats and International Relations while Souder is chairman of the Subcommittee on Criminal Justice, Drug Policy and Human Resources. The hearing will feature testimony from families as well as from law enforcement authorities and cruise line representatives. Congressional members want to learn more about tragedies that occur aboard cruise ships and whether international maritime issues such as jurisdiction stand in the way of investigating such incidents.

"Congress needs to take a broader look at cruise line safety," said Rep. Christopher Shays, R-Connecticut. "One of my constituents, George Smith, recently disappeared from a cruise during his honeymoon. As we worked with the Smith family on his case, it became more and more apparent that this issue went beyond one person."

As reported on December 8 on the MSNBC show, Scarborough Country, those that would like to help Mr. Smith's family can send an email to justiceforgeorge@aol.com or you can visit www.hagelsmith.com.
