SIR - The BBC recently advertised 'Pirate Week' for kids to dress up.

After some research I found that although restricted by the pandemic, in 2021 there are still events scheduled in Plymouth and the Cayman Islands celebrating pirates with festivals and so on.

Why are certain criminal activities seen as glamorous and to be celebrated? We don't have fly-tipping festivals where people drive around in white vans dumping used mattresses everywhere.

On a similar note, a holiday company some years ago offered their tourists "The Titanic Experience".

What did they do? Sail the lucky passengers up to the freezing Arctic Circle and throw them overboard?
