Hey Bruce
Thanks for the great history lesson. Interesting stuff. Just one thing don't forget about our Native American brothers and sisters. As a New England Indian I am well aware of the legacy my ancestors have left in the area of swimming and whaling along the east coast. Thanks for keeping it real.
