    I can't fathom how a male could be assigned to massage a female in the first place.

    In a country wrought with history of thuggery, patricide, criminality, corruption, bigotry, racism, religious intolerance.... this is not a surprise.

    I was on board the mercy on Monday. They had "Trinco Blue is now off limits to all personnel" in each of the ships notice boards. I wonder if this is the case
