Watertribe and Galactica

The 2007 Everglades Challenge was over before sundown on Monday; last year's winners were back with a new boat, and set ANOTHER course record. There is a good chance that second place will go to a lunatic in a basic kayak, who covered the 300 mile course on nothing but muscle power and something like four hours of sleep. Small boat legend Matt Layden and his eight foot long "Sand Flea" are still on the course, and look likely to finish in the top third of the fleet. My friend Chuck Leinweber and his partner, and their highly experimental proa, are still at it, and seem to be bringing up the rear of the fleet.

In other news, I have decided that Battlestar Galactica is Simply Not Worth My Time. I take no joy in watching stupid people being unhappy, and Galactica has devolved into supposedly intelligent people being REALLY stupid and unhappy. If I want to get depressed, I can just watch the news...
