Rhode Island Sailors Missing!

This just in from Virginia:  four sailors hailing from Rhode Island are still lost at sea this evening after possibly being hit by Tropical Depression/Storm Andrea, forming ominously off the Carolina coast this week.  Representative Patches and Jack Reed (a short Senator) have been haranguing the Coast Guard to step up efforts to find the Rhode Islanders from the 54-foot Flying Colours vessel, missing since their distress signal was first heard Monday.  The ship began its journey from St. Thomas and was trying to get to Annapolis, Maryland.  Apparently, this is a great time of year to embark on such a trek because of the improving weather and calm seas along that route.  All four sailors were between the ages of 22 and 34 and had plenty of maritime experience.  We wish the Coast Guard luck in finding these wayward sailors and their vessel.
