He is Called Ishmael
I was extremely impressed with a recent story in the Express about the Pierson High School Quiz Bowl Team's advancement to the regional championship tournament. Congratulations! But I was shocked to hear from someone on the team that one of the questions our Whalers missed this season concerned the name in the opening line of Moby Dick. Obviously, these students missed Alec Baldwin's Bookhampton reading in July. Perhaps someone from the team should stop by the store tomorrow to hear Donovan Hohn reading from Moby Duck. Who knows what tournament-winning information on the science of ocean drift might be obtained during the 5 o'clock hour?
