A return to piracy- not the cyber type but the good old fashion high seas kind- is weirdly refreshing.  

We've become so 9/12 code orange about things on dry land, it's nice to remember that terror is waterproof.  I'm not condoning it, but I welcome the change of pace.

But since these days, barring Somali bandits, pirates are generally reserved for Halloween or hung from the perfectly chiseled cheekbones of Johnny Depp, what will the next acceptable symbol of terror to dress up as or make a kid's movie about?
