All the President's men are falling...

Supposedly Trump ordered Tillerson to eat the wilted Caesar salad served at a state Chinese dinner, but the SoS refused, saying he'd rather have a cheeseburger ("As It Happens," CBC Radio One, 03.14.2018). Now he eats alone at drive-thrus. http://www.cbc(dot)ca/radio/asithappens/as-it-happens-wednesday-edition-1.4575887/march-14-2018-episode-transcript-1.4577956 (Accessed 03.15.18)

Stealth Mode vs. Stalking

Reading threads in Sailing Anarchy's Forums constitutes 'stalking' by some anarchists, who clearly know nothing about ocean racing, where 'stealth mode' is a well known strategy used by racers who have an 'ace up their sleeve' as they attempt to outmanoeuvre their competitors. Here in SA, stealth mode translates into stalking supposedly. I'm proud to have received a 'STALKING' notice from webmaster Zapata, when in actual fact, I was just reading the Forums. (I was no slouch on the high seas; ditto here in SA. Stealth, I know.) He's demonstrated he knows nothing about how SA Users follow their favorite topics much less anything about ocean racing. And he sure as shootin' knows squat about stealth. Sad, as the Prez would say.

VOR Leg 6 upset?

Former director of external affairs for Oracle, Tom Ehman, told the New Zealand Radio Sport on February 10:  "There's a bit of a conspiracy theory... Team Brunel has [Kiwi] Peter Burling aboard and is leading right now, and many people think that Team Brunel will end up winning this leg into Auckland just because they've got Peter Burling aboard.
"The other notable Kiwi sailor is Blair Tuke; he's on MAPFRE, and I'll bet you anything one of those two boats wins." That was then, this is now, February 22, 2018 1854UTC:
          TTOP leads!
          bitter pill for Scallywag
          MAPFRE swallows hard

Sailing Anarchy Is Not an Anarchy

Why I don't post on the Sailing Anarchy Forums any longer, plus the fact that the site is hacked. Anonymous crackers are arbitrarily changing the Community Reputation Points, creating all sorts of anarchic mayhem for those who care about their reputation on this website, when those of us who know what's what know that there are no leaders in any self-respecting anarchy. Right, Scot Tempesta?
