Plus, those fish didn't freeze, pack, and arrange transport themselves.
Well, it only took about 10 minutes of my time to arrange that. The rest was done by summer workers on the Kenai pennisula and the extended corporate empire of Fred Smith.

Re: Tiny Triumphs

Caught 25.4 lbs of wild salmon, had it frozen and shipped back to my home.

(The effective all-in per pound cost was...not economical. Not *completely* ridiculous, but even Whole Foods would have a better price).

Now finally reading the full story on the Papa John's thing that happened. The most ha ha morissettian part I now just learned is that the entire point of conference call was to coach him on better public relations interactions.

So about those newsletters being youthful indiscretions. [Racist Tweet] It was never asserted that the newsletters were "youthful indiscretions".
