After a week of trudging around in the muck, rain, wind and cold (and some sun yesterday) I encountered a small school of migratory stripers this evening – and even managed to hook a couple of them. These fish were bright, clean and crawling with sea lice.
Odds are that because they had sea lice on them, these striped bass were recently swimming in the open ocean. Sea lice hitch a ride on stripers when they are traveling in the sea, and then hang on for dear life. Holdover stripers, on the other hand, are typically more dull in color and do not have sea lice.
We Get A Linebacker, A Wide Receiver, And Secondary Help
We're midway through the NFL Draft, and we now have a better idea of how the roster will look next season. When last night's entertainment had subsided, we had 4 new Patriots.
Here's who we got:
I've been spending time watching ospreys who seem to soar so effortlessly above all the betrayals and heartaches of the world and somehow prompt me to remember something that tragedy often makes you remember.
That being the heights of the human spirit and all that truly defines freedom. The osprey is called the bird of freedom -- perhaps because of its capacity to fly high into the heavens, all the time emitting its call which sounds to me a proclamation of something good although I have no proof of that.
Assuming all Muslims are Islamist extremists bent on killing those with whom they disagree would be like saying that those Christians responsible for atrocities are representative of all Christians.

Sometimes it's hard to contain my discontent with the current state of affairs in our Commonwealth. First let me say that Deval Patrick did a great job last week. He was smart to allow law enforcement to handle the situation and didn't say anything stupid when at the podium. His voice was calm and he looked like a leader, well done.
In deference to those who hold, for their own purposes, that this is a Christian nation, let me quote from Galatians written by the person many credit with actually founding formal Christianity, Paul.
3:10 For it is written, Accursed [is] every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.
Bill Belichick Moves Down, Gathers Picks...
The New England Patriots addressed their lack of picks this year by trading back in the draft. They collaborated with Minnesota, and moved out of the first round.
For their #29 pick, the Pats gained picks #52, 83, 102, and 229. They went from having 3 picks in the top 219 to having 5 picks in the top 102.
Minnesota selected WR Cordarrelle Patterson with our former pick.
The horrific events at the Boston Marathon won't soon be forgotten, nor should they. As pain, grief, sorrow and pride start to wain the next inevitable emotion will be anger. With that anger people will start to ask why and how this was allowed to happen.
Commitment is important, as is consistency if a person is to be believed.
I am sure we all remember Rand Paul’s 13 hour filibuster concerning the use of drones against American citizens. Although I agreed with his premise, I did find fault that he based his filibuster on human rights which was inconsistent with his previous stands on them.
