Sure, Sam Blackman was interested in the USS John F. Kennedy, but he says what really got his attention was the US Naval Hospital Ship Comfort, a "floating hospital" in town for some repairs, in part because of the contrast between a healing ship getting repaired and a warship getting decommissioned. But also:

Let me tell you something: the U.S.S. Comfort was more impressive for its size. It's huge. The pictures I took don't do it justice. The ship is over 270 meters in length (that's nearly 1/5 of a mile).

J.L. Bell discusses possibilities (seems that even after the Revolution was over, participants were reluctant to come forward) - and thinks he knows who released the first list of tea throwers, back in 1835.

So Boston used to have a Domino Sugars plant. Anybody know where (and whether they finally dropped the last S for savings)?

Bostonia Rantida never tires of getting off a plane at Logan or seeing the Boston skyline appear on the 'Pike on the Fung Wah:

... It amazes me sometimes just how much I love this city; how I physically miss it when I am gone. ... It seems that my soul lets out a sigh of relief when I step back into city limits ...

Yup, meanwhile, is loving her new office view, which looks out over Boston Harbor:

jellyfish and garbagefish

After I took care of the administration of justice in Suffolk County, I went for a walk along the harbor. Near Columbus Park, I saw a lot of trash in the water. But that "bag" on the left is actually a jellyfish.

Kat takes a panoramic shot from above Rowes Wharf out across the harbor and into the ocean, and explains how she loves wide-open vistas (click on the photo for the giant-sized version).

LNG Solutions is a new blog aimed at fighting the continuing transit of LNG tankers through Boston Harbor:

Liquefied natural gas tankers traveling through Boston Harbor carry volatile cargo and are terrorists targets. Sixty times a year, these floating bombs steam past thousands of homes and 500,000 residents who are in constant danger. We want these dangerous ships out of Boston Harbor.

Sisu starts out photographing her cat going into the washer, but ends up photographing one of those ginormous, helicopter-guarded LNG tankers coming into the Inner Harbor.

Sco makes the case for putting an LNG facility there: Basically, better there than in the middle of a densely populated area such as Fall River - or around the Inner Harbor.
