    Here in the Tampa Bay area we pay attention to that kind of stuff. Thanks! If you have an interest in the Canal I bet you saw the NYT’s lengthy story on the badly handled expansion project: The New Panama Canal — A Risky Bet.

  2. Tyrell says:

    There is a plan in the works to build another canal. I think through Nicaragua. China is over this one.

  3. @Tyrell: I am not sure that notion actually rises to the level of real plans, to be honest. (Especially now that global trade is slowing).
