Tonight sailed my venerable C-15 in the Sunstroke Series, in Marina Del Rey; despite some cobwebs and rust managed to finish 2nd. My little boat "It's the Water" is now thirty-six years old (!) and still flying :)

Among the things it explains: The Income Inequality Warriors. There seems to be an effect that the more you try to close the "income inequality" gap, the bigger you make it.
16-year-old guitar virtuoso Tina S shreds Metallica's Master of Puppets. The entire 8:32 is awesome, but for the TL:DW advance to 3:40, close your eyes, and drift... YES. And the solo at 5:30 totally rocks.
