Why is this so crazy?

People who can’t afford medical care die. Well hell, we all die – what right do I have to rob your pocket to  linger a few more years?

Are these Connecticut boats?

 General Dynamics’ Electric Boat building two new subs. For all its power, the Internet can be frustrating – can’t seem to find out whether these big boys are being built in Connecticut or Virginia. (But it does give me an excuse to post a beautiful picture of a Herreschoff  sloop)

UPDATE: do you know the story of Connecticut native (New London, I think) Nathaniel Herreschoff? I know I’m going to screw this up, so go Google him but, basically, when he was I think 16, in, maybe 1876,  he built one of the first catamarans, sailed it down Long Island Sound with his 14-year-old brother and proceeded to beat the entire fleet of the New York Yacht Club whose owners’ boats were crewed by professionals. The Club responded by banning multi-hulls, Herreschoff went on to design some of the most beautiful keel boats in the world and multi-hull design and development was stalled for at least a century. Pretty impressive results for a teenager, eh?

I know nothing about the subject, but here’s a good general discussion on InstaPundit. It’s still hurricane season,  so this is probably stuff you may want to know. Me, I’m that Jewish mother: “I’ll just sit here in the dark”.

If, like me,you missed it, Paul Simon sang at the ceremony yesterday

Oddly enough, I believe this was the first record album I ever owned. Never, ever did I think it would prove the perfect dirge 45 years later.
