According to my contact on the island, the boat is still not in Honduran police custody, "which means it will most likely sit there for weeks."
Speculation about the boat is rife. Again, according to my contact, "The guy who towed it in said it was upside down when they found it.

Let's use this occasion to contact our Senators and Representatives by whatever means we…Continue

The following is from WorldHum.com -- a new resource one of my traveling friends has pointed me to. Once again, no easy way to link straight to the story, so I am copying it in full.
The U.S. Embassy in Managua reported that nearly a dozen taxi kidnappings occurred in the past month in several areas, including around the international airport, along bus routes to and from San Juan del Sur,…
