Shantytown Post Mortem

On February 15th, the USS Walter Mondale was decommissioned and dismantled. On February 16th, its parts were taken to an undisclosed location.

Say what you will about our submarine, but we were never in danger of blowing up the ocean.

That said, Mission Accomplished. Thanks for coming, visiting, loaning us all sorts of stuff, and not calling it a boot with Dan Rather painted on the side.

Mondale Blurb, Second Hand, To Wit

A second or third time shanty-goer told us that she e-mailed Mr. Mondale about our shanty and he replied with something along the lines of:

"What a great honor. Is it made out of butter?"

While the second part of this message could be taken as a non-sequitur or a reason to worry about Mr. Mondale, he was likely referencing the great midwestern tradition of honoring people by carving their busts out of butter; an honor he has probably become exhausted with.

Danny Siegelman and his intrepid crew rocked our shanty out, if you wanted to know.


Shanty, cont'd
