The NY Review of Books has an interesting article about Somali pirates operating in the horn of Africa area. Jeffrey Gittleman who wrote the piece has a POV that consists of conventional statist apologetics (e.g. "if they just had a proper government here, it would all be better!") and which sucks, but it is an interesting profile of the pirates themselves. It made me ponder how Detroit would be if it were an ocean port city.
