Moby Monday: KellyAnne’s KliffsNotes on Moby Dick

“Time after time, I see the land media refer to Moby Dick as the embodiment of evil, and, frankly, this sort of coverage disappoints me. If they keep this up, partisanship will continue to divide creatures of the sea and creatures of the land. Throughout his campaign, Captain Ahab constantly blamed someone else for his own despair, but sometimes you just have to take a look in the mirror. All the polls said that Moby Dick had no shot against Captain Ahab, but look at what happened. Ahab’s ship was destroyed in a nautical landslide. The land media, the pollsters, the crew aboard the Pequod—they all got it wrong. Now it’s time to let the large whale-beast govern.”

Back Out of Mothballs. Again!

This is not an April Fool’s Day joke although my last Sea-Fever post was exactly 2 years ago today about an effort to relaunch the blog that ultimately founded, again.

Sea-Fever launched in 2006 and created over 1,000 posts of flotsam and jetsam and nonsense over the years. That’s a lot of content and frankly I was pretty proud of hitting that milestone way back then. I feel that I invested too much to just let this thing drift in helplessly in the Sagasso Sea of the web. So let’s relaunch this baby!
