From the government is watching department:

Updated August 16, 930am - updates details and news link
We still don't understand why people don't realize that the government is taking note of who enters and leaves the country on cruise ships. This seems like a no-brainer.

In an earlier posting we wrote about one passenger who was completely surprised when she was arrested on an outstanding warrant as she disembarked from her ship in New Jersey at end of a Caribbean cruise.

Today, there's a news story about an American sex offender, skipping out on his probation in Texas, and he was arrested by Canadian authorities in Toronto. They were tipped off to the fact that he was in Canada when he failed to return to his cruise ship, Carnival Victory, in Halifax on August 9.

He apparently didn't think anyone would notice that he didn't get back on the ship. Sheesh!
