I watched a DVD of a National Geographic documentary from the 1970s about the "great whales. I loved it. I got it at Half-Priced Books as part of a multi-DVD set called "Blue Ocean". I liked to learn about the whales. I also liked the hairstyles, the outfits and the science-on-the-make optimism of all concerned. The scenes of whale-hunting were deeply sad. The stories of early Greenpeace activism made me understand their perspective better than I had before. I do not believe that the intelligent mammals like whales, dolphins and great apes should be "harvested" under any circumstances.
The plane went through a storm, and the turbulence was palpable. Transportation was odd for me all day. My rental car had a dead battery. I had to take a cab to and from my morning matter in downtown Los Angeles. I ran out of gas on the way home from the airport. The nice fellow AAA sent could not find me and I had to wait two hours. I got hom at 2 a.m.
Tomorrow is supposed to be cold and rainy.
