Wow, is some news-server somewhere serving up two+ year old postings again?
Interesting thing about this post in light of current events, given that Rood is an editor and reporter, was his reporting and recounting of these events as accurate and factual as those of Reuters and AP in their recent coverage of the events in Lebanon? Fun example, e.g.: <http://mypetjawa.mu.nu/archives/184543.php , more serious treatment: <www.zombietime.com>

Can't say about Reuters and AP, but as someone who was on Bill Rood's boat that day, I can say his account pretty much meshes with mine.
A few differences to be sure, after all, it's been 35 years, but all-in-all, accurate.
