from the oil drum – a good read

Here’s an excerpt from one of the comments – just tickled this old sailor’s fancy. The article os well worth the read, though. Absolutely on the money.

Judging by your screen name you are a fellow sailor. Greetings. Methinks we are going to have to “go to weather” for quite a while. Lash everything down and prepare for an uncomfortable ride against a lee shore where most of our effort will be spent on just trying to stay off the rocks. Little forward progress will be made and there is no hope of “cutting and running”. Mind you, I have lost the nautical analogy there because the original term referred to cutting the anchor line. We unfortunately are not anchored and cannot run, even as the storm intensifies. We have to go forward.
