Somali piracy has grown into a multimillion-dollar criminal enterprise. Rarely a week goes by that pirates don’t attack or seize a ship.

NPR reports on the business-end of piracy, where pirates share profits and even distribute incentive bonuses.

WEATHER~ Possibly severe conditions today.

KENTUCKY~ The EPA is making TVA fix-up or close two coal-fired units at McCracken’s fossil plant. A Mayfield mom is suing the city school system alleging negligence led to her daughter’s (alleged) rape. Gubernatorial hopeful Phil Moffett gets endorsed by a national libertarian group. So the New Madrid fault earthquake in the early 1800’s wasn’t as strong as people thought.

TENNESSEE~ Jobless rates stay the course, but Montgomery County is hoping for 500 more. GOP/Dems spar over hospital fees.

OVC SOFTBALL~ UTM < SIU. MSU v UM canceled.
