The 335-foot cruise ship, which spent the past year being finished at a Salisbury shipyard, will depart for an 11-night "Maritime New England Cruise" that will take the 210-passenger vessel north to Halifax, Nova Scotia, where it was built. A lengthy legal dispute between the ship's buyer and its builder delayed its cruise schedule for years.

The signs were all there. This is what jumps out at you in perusing postmortems of the two greatest surprise attacks in American history. In the days and weeks leading up to Dec. 7, 1941 and Sept. 11, 2001, there were numerous clues that seem neon in hindsight, but which no one pursued.

We have been a band for 23 years and this is the first time we have had the opportunity to say these three words: 'Good evening, Baltimore,'” the 48-year-old singer said. He seemed both mystified and relieved. Why had it taken his band so long to play this city, especially given its proximity to Philadelphia, a spot the group never misses?
