The wake of the great sealers

Every spring, for hundreds of years, the Newfoundland sealers went joyfully to sea in wooden wall ships that were old and leaking, skippered by captains out for profit. They were maimed by frost, lost on the ice and drowned in the cold sea and yet they returned to brave the Atlantic ice and storms year by year, leaving a legacy to their courage and comradeship in the folklore of the province.

Sunshine, syrup and a silicone scare

I’ve never shared that purpling rage that comes over militant Women’s Liberationists at the mention of beauty contests. Agreed, the contestants are all exploited to a degree but the movement rhetoric that says beauty pageants are semi-civilized white slave markets has always struck me as wild overstatement.
