The miscreant skipper has already pleaded guilty to manslaughter and intoxicated boating, but the family of a slain passenger is now suing the feds for not lighting the pier more brightly. [Jessica Spies, Greece (N.Y.) Post]

Well, let a fact-finder determine if he’s right. Hey, the mob doesn’t use the court system, does that mean we should all just “whack” folks who do us wrong?

Perhaps I’m missing some crucial bit of local knowledge, but why is the lighting of the Summerville Pier relevant if the boat crashed into the Charlotte Pier?

Because different locals around here call the same pier by different names.
