Yeah, so it seems that Muskogee, Oklahoma, is in the targets of someone identified only as “the Pirate.” Except, instead of looting and pillaging, he’s giving away the gold. Previously he’s given $10,000 to the Education Foundation, and then back in Christmas 2008 he went on a total rampage of giving out $100 bills to random shoppers. Now The Pirate has struck again, donating $1,000 to a family who lost their home to fire.
Whether or not these are all the evil doings of a single pirate, or a case of copycat good samaritanism seems unclear. Read all about it here:
The world has pirates that deserve scorn (Somalia comes to mind), and others that get it without really earning it (Pirate Festivals have their share of knee-jerk detractors), but it’s refreshing to see a news story where the comments are all pro-“The Pirate”, lovey-dovey and such.
