How are we doing? – The larger picture
Photo (slide) is stolen from a presentation by Dr. Jeremy Jackson at the Naval War College back in January. McClanachan was a student of his he bragged on for finding the treasure trove of 50 years of trophy fish catch photos from Key West, prizes going to the person who caught the biggest fish. Jackson is director of the Center for Marine Biodiversity & Conservation at UCSD, among other prestigious appointments.

It's appalling. I had thought I had some idea. No, it's far worse than that.
Judy has been with her daughter and five-year-old granddaughter at the beach (Gulf Shores) all the past week, coming home today. She's reporting all is well at the beach, they have been having a great time and she's so glad for the child to have "the beach experience" before this summer is gone. I'm glad too. But knowing what's ahead for that child makes me feel like crying. -- Jim
