Looking Forward to August on the Vineyard

By Jeffrey Goldberg

I think we will be spending more time at Flying Horses than usual. From the Boston Herald:

Buddies out mackerel fishing today came upon a giant great white shark like they've never seen before "bumping" and "nudging" a dead whale and then circling their boat off Martha's Vineyard.

The line from the seminal shark flick "Jaws" quickly came to mind for the crew -- "We're gonna need a bigger boat."

The monster of the sea was "20 feet" long, said captain Jeff Lynch of Chilmark. "To see something that big was crazy. It was as big as my boat."
