R2AK (Race to Alaska) Winners

2018 Day 7: Sailing victorious on the wind of together

There was something different about tonight; everyone felt it. From the crowd of families and fans who gathered at the Alaskan Fish House to watch and wait, to the manager who stayed to keep the place open three hours beyond her normal, kids in tow, to support the proud and expectant crowd with the dry/booze/coffee of an Alaskan welcome, to the tracker fans from around the globe who stayed up well past prudent to be a part of this moment from whatever time zone their well-wishing required, until the moment seven women stepped simultaneous, arm-in-arm, off their Melges 32 to ring the bell of victory for First Federal’s Team Sail Like a Girl at 00:17 local time and became the fourth champions of the R2AK—from whatever moment along that spectrum of incredible—it was clear the spirit of community supplanted individual ambition as the central force carrying this year’s $10k winners into the rare air of R2AK glory. As much as this was a win for any one of them, to a sailor, they said, it was a win for everyone.

Senator answers Trump's accusations about Democrats

Proud to note that Michael Bennet is my senator.

Unfortunately, presiding in the Senate as he spoke was my other "senator", Cory Gardner.

"Compassion enters into it..."

says Trump, before signing the exec order. As if he has ever experienced compassion.

What . . . how . . .

There are reports that the White House is thoroughly enjoying our angst over this immigration disaster. They are amused.

Then we're hearing some of the stories about how agents and guards are treating detainees at the border, can't help remembering Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment.

How in the hell do we stop this?
