    The U.S. Coast Guard will escort the first ship coming to the EGT grain terminal at the Port of Longview this month, and the Occupy movement and local labor groups say they are planning to greet the vessel with a massive protest.

    The Coast Guard will deploy one or two vessels to escort the grain ship up the Columbia River, with more on call if necessary, said Lt. Lucas Elder, a spokesman for Coast Guard's Portland-based marine safety unit. Other law-enforcement agencies will also be present, he said.
    Small boat captains who refuse to get out of the way of the ship could face hefty civil penalties, Elder said.
    "The Coast Guard is definitely going to be involved in making sure the port is safe."

    Let's hope the infestation doesn't resort to spitting on the Coast Guard officers like they did in Boston.
