You might have seen this on the news. This is the taxi-converted-to-escape-boat intercepted by the Coast Guard about 20 miles from Key West. Read the story here.

Why was it necessary to sink the vessel? Does not creativity, ingenuity, and determination count for something. Tow it in and make propaganda hay from it. It looks like a modified 1948 Plymouth or Dodge, or maybe even a DeSoto. When's the last time you say one of those.

The passengers were taken off the taxi and returned to Cuba.
