A Pirate's Life
For many, the mention of "pirates" conjures images of a swaggering Johnny Depp or an eye-patched buccaneer, but current day pirates are anything but. On today's HearSay we'll examine the modern face of piracy and how the coastal waters of Somalia still prove dangerous for international shippers due to local pirate activity.  We'll also travel back to a time when dangerous pirates roamed the waters of coastal Virginia and threatened the Commonwealth's development and prosperity.
