    The first great white shark of the Cape Cod summer season has been photographed just 50 yards from the coast off Chatham.

    The 16-foot shark, estimated to weigh more than 2,000 pounds, was seen hunting seals near the shore by the Cape Cod Shark Hunters.

    'I spotted a couple yesterday,' said pilot George Breen. 'One was about a quarter mile offshore and the bigger of the two was about 50 yards off.'

    Cape Cod is pretty far north for a great white.


    That's what I like about the Great Lakes. No sharks, no crocs, no poisonous jellyfish, nothing that can kill you except cold water and drunks driving boats.

    Or, you know, when the gales of November come early.

    That's a great song.
    Good men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because
    rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.



    Real superheroes don't wear capes. They wear dog tags.

    I'm never on the big lake they call Gitchegoome. That's pretty far from Detroit, Chicago is closer.


    There are two connections to the song in Detroit, though. The bell from the Edmund Fitzgerald is at the Dossin Great Lakes Museum on Belle Isle and the Mariner's Church mentioned in the song (where the memorial was held) is downtown, next to the entrance to the tunnel to Canada.

    Neat! I never knew that. Thanks for sharing.
