Happy Palm Sunday and Easter.

Subject: Newspaper Readership

1. *The Wall Street Journal* is read by the people who run the country.

2. The Washington Post* is read by people who think they run the country.

3. *The New York Times* is read by people who think they should run the country, and who are very good at crossword puzzles.

4. *USA Today* is read by people who think they ought to run the country but don’t really understand The New York Times. They do, however, like their statistics shown in pie charts.

5. *The Los Angeles Times* is read by people who wouldn’t mind running the country, if they could find the time — and if they didn’t have to leave Southern California to do it.

6. *The Boston Globe* is read by people whose parents used to run the country and did a poor job of it, thank you very much.

8. The New York Post is read by people who don’t care who is running the country as long as they do something really scandalous, preferably while intoxicated.

9. *The Chicago Tribune* is read by people that are in prison that used to run the state, & would like to do so again, as would their constituents that are currently free on bail.

10. The Miami Herald* is read by people who are running another country, but need the baseball scores.

11. *The San Francisco Chronicle* is read by people who aren’t sure if there is a country or that anyone is running it; but if so, they oppose all they stand for. There are occasional exceptions if the leaders are gay, handicapped, minority, feminist, atheist dwarfs who also happen to be illegal aliens from any other country or galaxy, provided of course, that they are not Republicans.

12. *The National Enquirer* is read by people trapped in line at the grocery store.

13. *The Seattle Times* is read by people who have recently caught a fish and need to wrap it in something.

Spot on…Me to a T.

landscape photographer: Semi-autistic person who likes spending long periods on their own and didn’t fancy taking up fishing.

Laughed until my teeth ached.

OK, as soon as I get out of physical therapy I’m going to get a model and take those figure shots I’ve been planning to do for years.

More grief about Global Warming

Sippican Cottage reports sad news from Maine…

Skowhegan Maple Fest 2015

The Maple Festival is supposed to celebrate the culmination of sugaring season in Maine. There’s a problem.

There is no sugaring season in Maine, and there might not be one this year to speak of. During the Maple Festivals, the sugar houses of small to medium-sized maple syrup producers open their doors for a pseudo-open-house look at how they make syrup, and to sell their wares to the public. There are no wares this year because there is no sugar. In order to get the maple sap that gets boiled endlessly down into syrup, the temperature has to rise above 32 degrees Farenheit for more than ten minutes at a time, and it hasn’t done so. The temperature at my house was below zero last night, and the temperature has been 5-10 degrees below normal every month for two years. I’ve read that sugar houses are opening up for the Maple Festival and simply boiling water from the tap to show people what maple sugar season would look like if we had one, which we don’t.

Robert Heinlein wrote (thirty years ago) about the likely-hood that when things started getting colder in Europe centuries ago they piled on the wood and coal and staved off another mini ice-age.   Today the EPA is seriously attempting to ban burning all wood and coal.  We’ll miss the maple sugar in the morning on our pancakes when it’s gone.

“Ice ahead!” …Quack, Quack!

Boston Duck Tours will begin its 21st season today, but with some special measures to avoid frozen feathers. The duck boats will either not go in the water at all or make an abbreviated swim thanks to ice still clogging the Charles River.

Any time you go in the water with ice, it’s not a good idea. The Titanic is a good example,” said Bob Schwartz, a spokesman for Boston Duck Tours.


Biking across the Charles River, Quack, Quack!

BOSTON (AP) — Boston’s made history by having the snowiest, and probably most miserable, season since 1872.

The official measurement of 108.6 inches at Logan International Airport Sunday night topped a season record of 107.6 inches set in 1995-96, according to the National Weather Service in Taunton, Massachusetts.

“Superbowls, World Series’, Stanley Cups, and snowfall records,” Mayor Martin J. Walsh tweeted. “We are truly a title city. There will be no parade.”

The final 2.9 inches came after a record-setting monthly snowfall of 64.9 inches in February.

Well Shit, now that we have the damn record can we get on with Spring?  Please?
