Last week, three Somali men were convicted by a federal jury in a Norfolk, Va., court on charges that included piracy. It's one of a number of recent cases prosecuting piracy that some think is helping to curb a flurry of thefts, kidnappings and murders on the high seas over the last several years. Others say deterrents like more armed guards on cargo ships are stemming the tide. We explore how companies and individuals are responding to the threat of piracy and the challenges of prosecuting the crime.
In 1986, a federal official issued a warning: If Metro continued to expand rapidly, the system faced a future of stark choices over maintaining existing infrastructure. Metro chose expansion. We talk to a historian about that decision. We also hear from a former Metro general manager about the following years, and from an Arlington planner about measuring how riders are responding to SafeTrack.
