defending moby dick?

Greenpeace versus Japanese whaling ships -- not a made-for-TV movie but a battle underway somewhere near Antarctica. The whalehuggers and whalekillers are trading accusations over who rammed who in the icy Southern Ocean.

I must say I'm impressed the two Greenpeace ships managed to find the Japanese whalers at sea. Look for the movie in 2007, although since Pat Morita died, Hollywood will have to find somebody else to take on the role of the grizzled Japanese whaling captain. Richard Gere, perhaps?

Meanwhile, I believe there is no truth to the rumor that Japan will ask the French to take care of their little problem...
