Meanwhile, some clown of a Turk blurts out in the middle of a routine inspection of his ship prior to entering the port of Philadelphia that he has a bomb on board. He quickly changed his tune, but they've sent him back out to sea and are in the process of tearing his ship down to the keel as we speak. I have the nastiest suspicion that this is a "crybaby", a first-class diversion from an actual smuggling attempt of some sort. High-value one, at that, if they're willing to get their accomplice jailed for a false report. Hope everybody has their eyes peeled. Especially in Philadelphia.
