Cruising and Politics Don't Mix

One final note about the cruise.  The final morning, when we had our last breakfast together, several passengers were wearing George W. Bush pins.  The pins had been absent during the cruise.  Indeed, all political pins, buttons, T-shirts... even talk was simply not there.  It was as though we all followed some unwritten rule about not going there and making the rest of the week uncomfortable (as you know it would be if the 80-some people on the boat divided themselves into partisan camps).  As it was, all we had going was some good old-fashioned rivalries over the pennant races.  Cool.
