- A man of many words. Profane, profound, loyal to a fault and a right rat bastard. I love the finer things in life: expensive cigars, cheap women and all the salted, cured meats I can eat. A friend to dogs, lover of humanity and despiser of people. If I were King the world would be a better place, because, well...I would be King! Oh, and I like ice cream.

Melville's tale of Ahab, the Pequod, the White Whale and madness. Quite the yarn. Mick loved it. I thought it was pretty good, but I'm not gaga over it.
I have "Collapse" by Jared Diamond, the sequel to "Guns, Germs and Steel" on deck. But, first I think I'll launch into "Flashman's Lady", the third in Fraser's series about my favorite poltroon.
Read on, McDuck.
