    (very indirectly related to the diary, but anyway...)

    Roughly ten years ago, when I lived in Seattle, I was talking to my brother about a recent election and I mentioned some candidate running for a position on the Seattle Port Authority.

    My brother said, "What's a Port Authority?" I said, they're in charge of things like the airport and the docks where the ships unload cargo."

    My brother asked, "What, you don't have a mafia?"

    (I should mention that he's a fan of classic movies, so I think he was probably thinking of "On the Waterfront.")

    But the angle said to them, "Do not be Alfred. A sailor has been born to you"
