Look Who's Third World Now
Someone else is throwing around the "third world" moniker in relation to Miami - and this time, it's a businessman who has extensive dealings with the city.
According to Miami Today, Carnival Cruise Lines CEO Bob Dickinson said Miami's port facilities are "third world" and that construction of the new cruise ship terminals has taken too long.
Okay, we feel Dickinson's pain about annoying, costly, and late construction. Still. A cruise line CEO calling anything "third world?" Um, pot, meet kettle. The cruise line industry is notorious for paying its employees "third world" wages. Carnival should feel right at home.--Tamara Lush
