Where I am these days, a lot of folks have been heading off for winter getaways to these sunnier, warmer destinations.
I have been looking over these possible travel deals and have been thinking of a winter getaway myself. But I have cold feet about the whole thing because of these horror stories making the news lately about cruise liners sinking, of people getting beat up and killed in Mexico, and of people getting sick at resorts in Cuba. Just this week I heard that people are now getting sick on the cruise ships, too. You cannot seem to escape these bad stories.
Anyway, I wrote about all this news in my column this month. It should be good for a few laughs.
