I have a feeling that if the government approached NCL and asked them to put one of their ships into service that Kevin Sheehan would consider it. New York is his hometown and he has felt the wrath of Sandy as his own home is under water.

Quoting from excerpts of Sheehan's Open Letter - "New York is my home town. I was born and raised in New York and I consider myself a New Yorker through and through. I can tell you that I truly feel your pain and frustration and sympathize with everyone who is living with the realities of the storm’s devastation. My family and I have been affected as well, as my house in New York is flooded and we are still trying to process it all."
He must be a rich refugee - disaster doesn't discriminate, ya know ... homeless, too
Somehow, I believed if NCL is asked, they would consider the request and do the right thing. We as New Yorkers are resourceful, neighbors helping neighbors in times of need.
Personally speaking, I do not care for 45,000 people running around tomorrow with more street closures, dang for what benefits it will bring - regardless of where they are from, ya stay away and go away - ya hear.
Do us all a favor and stay away. It's people like you, from other parts of the country, that are not affected by events like this in NY, that think this is a big bunch of nothing ... You would never see a NYer say something like that when a tornado rips thru your neighborhood and devastes everything.

As for mjt2000,
hope you aren't related to the homebound elderly living alone on high-rise housing without electricity since Monday, unable to get to dialysis because the driver has been stranded at home, unable to get to work, with the van out of gas sitting in a flooded waterfront garage depot - conditions make worsen by the doctor & nurses displaced from their evacuated hospital, out of medications and the pharmacy closed & unable to get Rx eScript refilled.
(you might just find yourself in those shoes someday but you probably won't remember what you said ...)
