Breaking News: Joe Sestak is going back to sea.

The former Navy admiral and congressman is back in Pittsburgh today after speaking at a Marcellus Shale conference, and continuing his thank-you tour of supporters from his US Senate run. That included a stop at the City-County Building to see city council supporters and to drop by (by himself, with no forewarning) on Mayor Luke Ravenstahl, who wasn't at his fifth floor office. (You don't step on another captain's ship without saying hello, Sestak explained.)

Asked about his future plans, Sestak dropped this bombshell: after three decades in the Navy he is returning to the sea . . . on Disney Cruise Lines. After his daughter Alexandra was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor Sestak and his wife took her to Disney World, so now that it has been five full years since her last treatment they are taking her (upon her wishes) on a Disney cruise that leaves from Cape Canaveral.

After that's over Sestak said he will take a few months to mull over his future in politics, or something else.
