    When the ship’s captain was contacted for comment, he said “I inherited this condition from my predecessor.  For far too long, some containers have been more full than others, and when you spread the weight around, it’s good for everyone.  My team has ensured that traditionally underserved container communities have received their fair share of the weight. Now let me be clear, any economist you ask will tell you my policies are working. You guys should thank me.”  His employers fired him immediately and referred the information they had to a prosecutor.
