There was a story in the Washington Post last week about the shortage of boat storage space along the Potomac River for high school crew teams . I was lucky to go to the one high school in northern Virginia that had its own boathouse and amazingly large collection of shells as well. If I recall correctly, we didn't even do much fundraising throughout the year. It's interesting that a public school could have so much money invested in a sport that many people consider to be elitist or even yuppy, but it's definitely a worthwhile sport. I can honestly say that crew is the only true team sport, where every member is equally important, and star players don't exist.

I've updated the work in progress on the Music page. There's only about a minute's worth of material right now, but it's on the right track now after several false starts. Now that I have a cable modem, I'm considering doing this in MP3 format, although that will definitely limit the number of dial-up downloads I get. If you have a strong opinion one way or the other, just let me know.
